Nicki Minaj won her first AMA of the night for Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Album for “The Pinkprint” in Christian Louboutin sandals.
Minaj took the stage in the same gold Louboutin shoes she wore on the red carpet at the 2010 American Music Awards.The rapper was on hand that year to present the award for Best Soul/R&B Female to Rihanna.
In 2010, the metallic gold Christian Louboutin platform sandals were paired with an eye-catching Manish Arora dress. This year, Minaj paired her go-to shoes with a Michael Costello pink cut out gown.
Before accepting the award, Minaj playfully danced to her own song “Anaconda” in her sky-high heels. She then dedicated the award with a heartfelt message to her fans saying, “Please find your voice and purpose before it’s too late.”
She is up for two more awards before the night is up including Artist of the Year. Other big winners include The Weeknd for Favorite Soul/R&B Album and One Direction for Favorite Pop/Rock Duo or Group.
So far, One Direction, Selena Gomez, Nick Jonas, Carrie Underwood, Gwen Stefani and Ariana Grande have performed on the AMA stage. Stay tuned for more highly-anticipated performances from Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, and Alanis Morisette and Demi Lovato.
