Fyre Festival

With promises to pay fan’s tuition, is Nicki Minaj going to be the next Fyre Festival?

Regardless of what you think of Nicki Minaj, she’s encouraging good grades and generosity. She recently promised to pay some of her Twitter followers’ college tuition.

Over the weekend, a fan sarcastically asked Minaj to pay his school costs in response to her Twitter brag that she could afford to fly almost anybody anywhere.

“Well you wanna pay for my tuition?” @cjbydesign tweeted to Minaj.

Minaj came back with a shocking reply, possibly setting herself up to be the next Fyre Festival.

“Show me straight A’s that I can verify w/ur school and I’ll pay it,” she said, adding that she was “dead serious.”

A few dozens fans took advantage of this offer, posting screenshots of their grades. The hip-hop/pop star with an estimated net worth of $70 million, according to IBT, responded to a few of those fans throughout Saturday night and also promised to pay for books and student loans. She turned it into an impromptu contest — you could call it the Nicki Minaj Twitter Scholarship Award.

“Ok u guys. It’s been fun,” she tweeted at 1:07 a.m., marking the end of the contest. “Let me make those payments tmrw then see if I have any money left.”

The question is: will she come through with these high-stakes promises? We’re talking millions of dollars she’s apparently willing to shell out for the financial equivalent of luxury islands. Will she, like Ja Rule and Billy McFarland, spend all the money set aside for her undertaking and then face ridicule from the public?

Surely, Twitter will tell us pretty soon. To keep tabs on this, follow Nicki Minaj here, and follow Mixtape Cover King while you’re at it.
