FILE- In this Nov. 18, 2012 file photo, Nicki Minaj arrives at the 40th Anniversary American Music Awards, in Los Angeles. Despite having a big year in music, Nicki Minaj didn't receive any Grammy nominations. The 30-year-old had one of last year's biggest hits with the multiplatinum dance-pop anthem “Starships.” Her sophomore album, “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded,” has reached gold status and launched other hits on the rap and R&B charts. But Minaj was shunned out when the Grammys announced this year's nominees, though the animated performer earned three nominations last year, including best new artist and best rap album for her platinum debut, “Pink Friday.” (Photo by Jordan Strauss/Invision/AP, File)
