Spotted: Nicki Minaj Goes Green On BET

Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that’s why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.

Lil Wayne may be behind bars, but his posse is in full effect. Drake has kept his 2009 buzz up on the march toward his full-length debut Thank Me Later (which promises to be one of the best albums of the year), and Nicki Minaj continues to build her reputation as an excellent MC as well as a fashion plate. She showed up with green hair at BET’s “106 & Park” for the premiere of her new video for “Massive Attack,” which puts Minaj in a number of scenarios in the jungle and the desert. It features another batch of wigs and costumes that are sure to get her mentioned in the same sentence as other forward-thinking women like Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Rihanna and Gwen Stefani.

The “106 & Park” set was crowded on Wednesday (March 31), as Janet Jackson also stopped by to talk about future musical endeavors and her current starring role in the new Tyler Perry movie “Why Did I Get Married Too?” Click here for these photos as well as the entire “Spotted!” archive, which features over 400 candid shots of stars like Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, the Jonas Brothers, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Diddy, Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Hudson, the Black Eyed Peas and Pete Wentz!
