Though she never made it as a nurse, Minaj has become a wildly sexy hip-hop star that we're sure plays doctor from time to time. So popular in fact, that she's found a fan and friend in Beyonce. Upon doing a remix of Queen B's song "Flawless," the Vanguard Award winner gifted the "Pink Friday" rapper with jewelry at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards.

Minaj Instagrammed: "If Beyonce didn't walk into your dressing room and give you a diamond "FLAWLESS" necklace, then there's no way you could be having a better week than me. Lol. Awwwww thank u QUEEN. ur just a precious gem. I could never thank you enough for your influence on powerful women all around the world. #WeFlawless"
