This was the second time Nicki performed on the main stage.
Dave Skylark's Very Special VMA SpecialEdit
A week before the MTV VMA kick-off, a funny interview special with Nicki Minaj, among Iggy Azalea and Jason Derulo, premiered on MTV to promote The Interview, a movie featuring James Franco and Seth Rogen. In the special, James Franco plays his character Dave Skylark who is an interviewer for MTV. He asks embarrassing questions and brings up situations that celebrities might not be comfortable with (Nicki's butt for instance). This 30 minute special premiered on August 17.
She Came to Give It to YouEdit
