Celebrity AidNeed help paying for college, turn to your favorite pop star. Last weekend rapper Nicki Minaj tweeted that she would pay the airfare from any country if her fans won a contest to hang out with her at the upcoming Billboard awards. In response one fan, a 21-year-old college student working two jobs tweeted back Š—“well you wanna pay my tuition?” In minutes the rapper was hit with a number of other responses from people asking for financial aid for things such as books and paying back student loans. And Minaj responded telling them she would be happy to help if they showed her proof through a direct message that they were in need of financial help and they had strong grades. And over the next couple of hours she kept her promise, finally wrapping up after shelling out $30,000 to fans looking for a higher education, and promising to do the whole thing again in a month or two. Some parents don’t believe in bribery, but maybe it will help if it’s someone else’s money being offered up as incentive.
