Season 12 American Idol judge Nicki Minaj gave almost 16 million followers on Twitter a sweet treat on Valentine's Day- the Queens rapper posted several pictures of herself flaunting her backside while wearing a thong bikini.
In the photos, Minaj wears an oversized white floppy beach hat and white high-heel sandals at a resort in Hawaii. The Superbass singer captioned the photos with a racy text when she posted them on Feb. 14.
"Happy #VagDay boyz...#JerkResponsibly" she tweeted.
Minaj fans sent a flurry of tweets to express their approval of the images.
"NICKIMINAJ that shoulda been the cover of the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition," wrote one follower.
"I'm probably going to marry @NICKIMINAJ ," wrote another.
"@NICKIMINAJ You just made everyone's valentine. thank you," tweeted another fan.
The photos of Minaj were taken from the set of a music video for rapper French Montana for his latest song Freaks. Minaj has a guest appearance on the song and lends her rap vocals on the track.
Minaj held a fan contest exclusively on Twitter a few hours later on Valentine's Day. She offered $1,000 cash to a select few male and female fans that would post a picture of themselves holding up a sign with the word "Nicki" on it.
"ok boyz&barbz...show me wutchoo got! post ya pic now! i wanna give away some vagday cash to the sexiest #dude and #barb GO!!! LMAOOOOOO" she tweeted. "and u must be holding up a sign that says #nicki so we know its u...1THOUSAND DOLLARS to the best =p show us some skin boyz...ifUBoutDATlife"
Minaj is also set to get her fans involved in the development of her clothing line. On Friday, Feb. 15, she told her "Barbz," (her nickname for her fans,) on Twitter that she will arrange to fly out several fans to California so they could give their opinion on her new clothing line.
"I'm thinking about flying a cpl of the barbz out to Cali for my clothing line meeting next week... Your opinions r the only ones that matter. ok barbz, set up your accts on http://shopyourway.com and we'll discuss the rest of the details on http://mypinkfriday.com xoxo," she wrote.
