Hip Hop was well represented at Billboard's seventh annual Women in Music event held in New York on Friday December 2.
While Taylor Swift took home the big prize of Women of the Year, Nicki Minaj landed the award for Rising Star of 2011. During her acceptance speech Nicki got emotional as she thanked her fans.
"I just know that I'm incredibly grateful and thankful for a couple of little kids... maybe a few million, I call them my Barbz. And I know they're not in here, but I know they'll hear me say this. Barbz I love you so much for being by my side for such a long time," Nicki said before starting to cry.
Nicki was later interviewed by ABC's Robin Roberts. Check that out below.
