Robert Maraj, father of rapper Nicki Minaj, died Saturday after after he was struck in a hit-and-run accident.
The rapper went after the awards show, which has long been criticized as racist, tweeting she should've won Best New Artist in 2012 over Bon Iver.
Pound the alarm: Nicki Minaj is officially a mom.
The rapper said on Instagram that comments he made about them were misunderstood and that he would “never disrespect them by any means.”
The rapper is expecting the baby with husband Kenneth Petty.
The ceremony took place virtually instead of at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, where it was held last year.
It felt like only one female rapper at a time could thrive in 2010. But more women were shining by the end of the decade.
The rap star showed off "Bride" and "Groom" hats and "Mr." and "Mrs." mugs on Instagram.
The rapper seemingly confirmed that the two hitmakers were working on an "epic" new song.
The rapper said she plans to start a family with her fiancé Kenneth Petty.
