Watch Taraji P. Henson Impersonate Nicki Minaj in SNL Skit
Taraji P. Henson hosted Saturday Night Live last night, fresh off her performance as everyone's favorite matriarch Cookie Lyon in Season 1 of "Empire," Her most memorable performance of the evening came during a skit that advertised a theoretical sequel to Rihanna's animated box-office smash "Home." With Kenan Thompson as Rick Ross and Jay Pharoah as Kendrick Lamar, Henson doned a pink wig and a push-up bra and impersonated Nicki Minaj providing the vocals for alien spacecops Thwick and Thwack. She also teamed up with Jim Parsons to cut a humorous song by the name of “Hustle Home” for the theoretical movie soundtrack.
We already knew from "Hustle and Flow" that Henson could sing. She's not to bad at rapping either, and her Nicki impersonation is sufficiently clownin'. Another key takeaway here is Taraji throwing down some fuego hip gyrations for a 44-year old lady.
