Nicki Minaj's Instagram made headlines recently when she decided to lip sync "It's Coming Back To Me Now," originally sung by Celine Dion. People were waiting for a bitter feud to break out between the two singers following the stint, but Celine Dion actually ended up giving Minaj's efforts a thumbs up.
When Nicki Minaj does something, it inevitably becomes grand and her lip sync attempt of Celine Dion's classic song "It's Coming Back To Me Now" was no different. She put on a gold chain, completely see-through dress for the video, that was destined to go viral, and it has.
In the video, the "Anaconda" singer is seen miming the iconic 1990s song with an over-dramatic interpretation, Billboard reported. She almost acted out a literal translation of the song through her wild hand gesture, facial expression, and lip movements. Nicki Minaj held her mobile phone one hand as she dramatized a good portion of the song against a black backdrop.
For the most part, the Nicki Minaj lip sync video looked hilarious, even though it looked fairly spontaneous and not a serious, well thought out attempt. So, people were anticipating a curt reply from Dion regarding Minaj's video, which good have easily come across as insensitive.
However, the "My Heart Will Go On" singer shocked everyone by giving Minaj's video a resounding approval. And she did so in French! "Excellente interprétation !! / Good job @nickiminaj!!" wrote Dion, retweeting a screenshot of the Nicki Minaj video.
"I love you so much. thank you!!!" tweeted back a thoroughly surprised Nicki Minaj, clearly grateful that her idol had found her video amusing. Hence, the situation, which could have easily turned into a cat fight, was saved by the gracious sporting attitude of Cline Dion.
This is the second big controversy that Nicki Minaj has managed to avoid in a week. Earlier in the week, Remy Ma, Minaj's long-time rival decided to revisit their ancient feud, telling Buzzfeed in an interview that both of them could have handled things better in their day if they had chosen to behave like adults.
Even though people expected Nicki Minaj to lash back with a fitting reply, she kept silent on the entire issue, choosing to let bygones to be bygones. This greatly impressed her fans, who were glad that Minaj was focusing on her music rather than getting involved in petty arguments.
