Starships were meant to fly – but they might struggle to get off the ground if Nicki Minaj is in charge of packing the food supplies.The rapper stunned staff in Nando’s restaurant after she ordered £3,000 worth of their tasty take-away chicken in one go.
According to the Daily Star, a source close to the singer claimed she ordered 550 chicken legs, 300 chicken wings and 60 bottles of coke, adding it was enough to fill ‘a whole car.’
A representative of the rapper said she probably had the order prearranged so she wouldn’t miss closing time.
‘The gig finished about 12 and she did a signing after the show. I can’t imagine Nando’s would have been open at that time. She was straight off back to America that night,’ he said. ‘She did a meet and greet thing after the show, and there was some after party that she went to. But I wouldn’t be surprised if she went to Nando’s or had a big order from Nando’s.’
Nicki’s on tour food demands are stuff of legend. For breakfast she has been known to order scrambled egg whites, turkey bacon, toast, Belgian waffles, strawberries, assorted juices and a large fruit platter.
Lunch meanwhile can consist of buckets of spicy fried chicken – no thighs, lot of wings – a large cheese platter, a deli tray filled with cold meats and a set of silverware to help shovel it all down.
