Nicki Minaj Performs ‘Bed of Lies’ With Skylar Grey on ‘Today’ [VIDEO]
Wearing a classic black pantsuit, the Young Money queen rapped through the song flawlessly as Grey sang the hook and played the piano.
"You could never make eye contact / Everything you got was based off of my contacts / You a fraud, but I'ma remain icon stat / Balenciagas on my boots with the python strap," Nicki raps while a live band supported her.
If you haven't heard the song already, it speaks of a love gone awry, and if you pay close attention to the lyrics it sounds like the Queens, N.Y. spitter could be talking about her former hypeman, and rumored ex-flame Safaree, as the two called it quits back in October.
Before her performance, Queen Barbz spoke about the different approach she took with 'The Pinkprint,' in terms of the overall sound, and the her current look.
"I think it's about time that people got to see me, and it's about time for me to feel a little more personable with people and sort of let my guard down, so I did that lyrically with the album and the look," she explained.
"This is a more vulnerable me, and to write vulnerable records is very scary, because you're putting out a lot of personal information just to the world, and you don't always know how people are going to receive it, and once you give it to them you can't take it back."
