Nicki Minaj was a big winner at the 2015 BET Awards, even if she had no idea what category she was accepting a trophy for towards the end of the evening.
When the “Only” rapper was named the Viewer’s Choice winner, she shuffled onto stage from behind the set to grab the statue and thank whoever was responsible. There was just one problem: Minaj wasn’t paying attention and had no idea what she just won. She tried to play it off for a minute, however.
“Oh my God, y’all, thank you,” she started. “I definitely didn’t expect this, but I want to thank BET once again for always supporting me. And I want to thank you guys for support on ‘The Pinkprint.'”
“Uh, what was this award for? I’m sorry,” Minaj admitted. “Huh? Oh! Viewer’s Choice! Oh my God yo, thank you!”
“I was in the back! I love you all,” she continued. “You know how much I need and want you.”
Earlier, the emcee won the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist award. That time, she knew what happened.
