Nicki Minaj called Billy Eichner her “new hero” in an Instagram post on Saturday that both mocks and praises him. See below.

On the last day of the year, Minaj shared a clip from “Billy On The Street,” Eichner’s comedy game show that features him asking random passers-by about pop culture. In this particular snippet, he stops a woman to discuss La La Land, and she has no idea what he’s talking about. Not only that, but the mom of four has absolutely no interest in engaging with Eichner, and actually gets pissed off.

It’s not clear if Minaj actually knows Eichner or his gimmicks, as her Instagram caption never mentions his name, but suggests she was both impressed and flummoxed by his interaction. “#Petty This dude is my new hero. Like pls somebody find this ngga,” she wrote. “He woulda got punched in his neck as soon as he woulda shoved the mic in my face that aggressively [at] the end.”

The rapper went on to say, “The way he delivers his final line is icoNIC!” And she further commented, “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’s show has featured a number of high-profile celebrities over its five seasons, including Will Ferrell, Jon Hamm, Seth Rogen, Lupita Nyong’o, Sarah Jessica Parker, Anna Kendrick, and Julianne Moore. And that’s just in 2015-2016. Gossip Cop is still confused, though, as to whether Minaj would want to take part. Check out her full post below.
