Nicki Minaj is putting her money where her mouth is.

Earlier this month, the rapper announced via Twitter that she would be assisting her fans in their education endeavors and she is already staying true to her word.


Just a couple of weeks after making the revelation, Nicki updated her Instagram to reflect just how much she’s dolled out to her fans. From student loans to books to tuition, she’s really making dreams come true.

Nicki is a busy girl, so it’s impressive that she has the time to help others. The female emcee stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week and opened up about starting this college crusade. “It’s close to my heart because I’ve always wanted to go to college,” she said.

“I always say that’s the one regret I have is that I didn’t get to go to college and just experience that,” she told Ellen.

Nicki went on to explain that she’s always wanted to do something like this for her fans and she plans on setting up a proper non-profit to continue helping students.

Ellen surprised Nicki with a gift of $25,o00 to assist her in helping more fans realize their college dreams. Fresh off her Billboard Awards Performance and somewhere between wearing a rope bikini and not having sex, Minaj is a bonafide philanthropist.

Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves



To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
