After she dragged Donald Trump and his wife Melania at the TIDAL X: 1015 benefit concert last night, Nicki Minaj had the rare opportunity to meet one of her idols. Neo-soul legend Lauryn Hill was also on the bill and decided to come to Nicki's dressing room to greet the Trinidadian rapper. In a Instagram clip, Nicki can be seen falling to her knees crying, "No no no no no," in disbelief. She bowed down to Hill before confessing her admiration for the singer: “I’m in love with you. I’m in love with your spirit, your mind — everything about you." Watch below.
