Okay, disclaimer, the real Nicki Minaj didn’t sing to Blue Ivy Carter, but an SNL actress dressed up as Nicki Minaj did and that’s basically the same thing.
SNL host Maya Rudolph played Beyonce and the skit saw appearances from: Price, who appeared in a cloud of smoke; Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie tried to steal the baby (that joke is STILL funny); LL Cool J licked his lips A LOT; Taylor Swift smiled real big and mouthed the words “Oh my gawd” like she just won Person of the Year at the Teen Choice Awards; Nicki Minaj came in and sang a “lullaby” to Blue Ivy Carter, which wasn’t so much a lullaby but rather growling to music.
Spoof version of Nicki Minaj starts off by saying she’d like to perform a song inspired by her Grammy performance, and the audience started laughing before she even opened her mouth because we all remember her Grammy performance, because it was bat sh-t insane.
Also, the highlight of the skit was when Justin Timberlake made a surprise visit to the SNL, as he LOVES to do, and played Bon Iver who played such a soothing lullaby to Blue Ivy that it put HIM to sleep. Justin Timberlake sang a Bon Iver song and it made him fall asleep! This is funny because Bon Iver’s music is boring!
