Am I the only one who pays my bills, particularly my student loans, and thinks dang if I could just find somebody to pay these mugs, I’d really be living. I know there are some people out there who wouldn’t flinch at my balance.

Well, my fantasy wasn’t all that far-fetched because that’s exactly what Nicki Minaj did for over a dozen college students and recent graduates.

It all started as a joke. Nicki was promoting another contest on her Twitter feed when someone jokingly asked her if she would be willing to come up off some money for their college tuition.

Nicki responded

From there, the requests came in. But don’t think people just asked for money and Nicki said yes, there were questions.

And so on and so forth. Nicki told people to DM her their bank information.

According to TMZ, she’s a woman of her word. They reached out to a couple of people that she had promised and they said they had already received funds from her. So generous of her!
