Nicki Minaj wins Wig Lawsuit
Nicki Minaj has just beat her hairstylist’s lawsuit in court.
Terrence Davidson, Nicki’s former hairstylist, had filed a $30 million lawsuit against Nicki, claiming he helped design her multi-colored wigs and that she in turn agreed to help by partnering with him on a new line of the show hairpieces but then backed out on him.
But the judge took Nicki’s side, Judge Hizzoner said there’s nothing special about colored wigs, anyone is free to make them so Davidson’s creative claim is false.
The judge used three of Nicki’s wigs to illustrate his point, The Pink Upper Bun Wig, The Fox Fur Wig and the Pink High Top Wig.

So now this case is closed.

Genise Ruidiaz, a back-up dancer for the performance, told MTV that she was bitten by a snake while rehearsing for the performance.
The dancer told MTV, “On Friday, the day that it happened, I was practicing the tricks with another contortionist and coming up with alternate poses, and the snake was good.”
“After about four times I was bitten, and he was gripping me the way he was supposed to, but I felt like he was getting tired and didn’t want to hold on much.”
“The trainers had told me the only reason a snake would attack, is if they felt like threatened, so I tried to readjust to make sure that he felt safe on me.”
“But right when I did one trick, I guess he must’ve felt I wasn’t holding onto him, so he went ahead and took a nice little bite out of my left arm.”
When asked about the pain, Genise said, “To be honest, it really didn’t hurt at all.”
“It literally felt like getting a shot, but with 40 needles sticking you all at once.”
The snake got the ‘boot’ and was not in the final performance.
