The rap star also said that the on-screen Barb, Margot Robbie, is "strikingly gorgeous" in person.

Nicki Minaj showed up and slayed the Barbie movie premiere to absolutely no one's surprise; how could she not? You don't just make a hit song for a film with Ice Spice, arguably the biggest rising star right now, and not stun at the big event. What's more is that she also snapped some pictures with lead actress Margot Robbie, and it looks like they had a great time together. Moreover, the rap queen also shared a short review of the highly anticipated flick on Twitter, adding that Robbie is beautiful in person. With the official Barb seal of approval, maybe this will convince even more rap fans to check it out- if "Barbie World" didn't do that already.

"She’s strikingly gorgeous in person," Nicki Minaj wrote of Margot Robbie while quote-tweeting a vid of them together at the premiere before sharing her thoughts on Barbie. "Btw, the entire cast of this movie nailed it. The film is so visually stimulating. The actors can actually act, & the comedic timing is actually on time. Bravo. I’ll see it again & give my final analysis around the 21st. Will Ferrell, I [heart emoji] U." A full-fledged movie review from one of the best rappers in the game? Fans are eating good.
