Before donning her carnival costume, Minaj spoke to Jay Leno about her current headlining world tour, opening for Lil Wayne,and her move from Trinidad to America. “We were so existed [to arrive in America] because we just wanted to see snow. We had never seen snow, we had never felt it cold. When we got there all we wanted to do was make snow angels and that was the highlight of our lives.”
