There is no better place to party for New Years than Las Vegas, and it appears that rapper Nicki Minaj got the memo. The “Starships” singer rang in 2013 hosting a huge party at the Pure nightclub inside Caesar's Palace New Year's Eve.
The normally colorful and whimsically dressed star ditched pink wig at and wowed Sin City in a “sin-sational,” curve-hugging gold Hervé Léger dress paired with chunky gold jewelry, sparkling Red Bottoms, and a wavy blonde wig.
Minaj did the customary countdown at midnight on the rooftop of Caesar's Palace before heading inside and partying the rest of the night with her Barbz. In between fist-pumping and drinking champagne, the platinum-selling artist performed her hits "Moment 4 Life" and "Starships," and talked to the crowd about living to see 2013.
"I wanna congratulate all of you for living to see 2013...so if you're here in this room I thank God for you, and I hope that you thank God for life."
Minaj ended a very accomplished 2012 filled with a Pepsi and fragrance deal, a Super Bowl performance, a world tour, and two albums - just to name a few things.
One of the first things on Minaj’s 2013 agenda will be her debut as a judge on American Idol. Season 12 premieres Jan. 16 on Fox.
