Nicki Minaj Calls Billy Eichner Her New Hero Due to His ‘Billy on the Street’ Antics
Nicki Minaj has found a new source of amusement in Funny Or Die's game show Billy on the Street. The show started its fifth season last month, and apparently just caught the eye of the Young Money rapper, who is calling the show's host, Billy Eichner, her new hero.
On the hilarious NYC-based series, Eichner approaches random people on the street and quizzes them on pop culture. Not everyone is cool with being approached, which is where some of the antics come in. Minaj recently posted a clip of the show on her Instagram page, and she got a huge kick out of Eichner's act in the comments.
"This dude is my new hero. Like pls somebody find this ngga," she wrote. "He woulda got punched right in his neck as soon as he woulda shoved the mic in my face that aggressively @ the end (pauz) talkn bout SWEETIE. ngga said OSCAR BUZZ?!?!! The way he delivers his final line is icoNIC! SWEETHEART, OK it has oscar buzz & I saw Emma stone do a Q&A! And I'm almost positive she meant to say u got the WRONG btch to put u in the RIGHT place. That's the only way this line is lit. PSA: this is a dangerous game to play in the streets of NY. New Yorkers ain't rlly wired right, we throwed off. I'm so happy he made it home alive cuz i really wanna meet his petty ass."
Eichner caught wind of the rap star's comments and responded, "Well @NICKIMINAJ calling me her new hero is a perfect way to end the year. I'm DYING!!!."
