Nicki Minaj Says She 'Dressed as the Devil' for 2018 Met Gala (Exclusive)

Nicki Minaj has no problem playing the "bad guy." 

The 2018 Met Gala's theme was "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination," but the "Chun-Li" rapper seemingly came to raise a little hell -- and told ET all about her devilish ensemble. 

"The look is Oscar de la Renta, so I'm very excited, and it's all about being the bad guy," she told ET's Keltie Knight on Monday's red carpet. "I'm the bad guy, b***h, so I'm dressed as the devil."

Minaj has used the term "bad guy" before -- like when discussing her feud with Cardi B. After both rappers appeared on Migos' song, "MotorSport," rumors sparked that there was bad blood when Cardi accused Minaj of altering her verse on the track. In her recent interview on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show, Minaj admitted that she was upset by Cardi's comments.

"It hurt my feelings to know that people would watch me be slaughtered and not one person will step in to say the truth,” she said. “They will run with the lie, they’ll allow people to run with the lie because it’s entertaining to make Nicki seem like the bad guy…up until this recent interview that she did, I had never seen her show me genuine love in an interview."

Once inside the Met Gala, however, it seems Minaj may have been feeling some "genuine love" too, as she was photographed chatting it up with Cardi.

Whether their talk was enough for the two to collaborate again in the future is another story.

"The album comes out June 15 and it's called Queen," Minaj told ET of her upcoming album, revealing that she has "a collab or two that I'm excited about." 

"I do feel like a queen," she added.
