Ever since we heard the devastating news that Nicki Minaj was going to leave her infamous lap dances behind when she heads out on the road with Britney Spears for the Femme Fatale tour this summer, we didn't know what we were going to do with ourselves. We get it -- a lap dance-free show is a bit more family friendly, but we're really going to miss our recent morning ritual: checking out who Nicki grinded all up on the night before as we sip our first cup of coffee of the day.
To help you cope with this brave, new, "no lap dances" world, we compiled a list of the most notable lap dances Nicki Minaj gave while she was out on Lil Wayne's I Am Still Music tour.
+ Random fan in Rhode Island: At the first stop on the I Am Still Music tour in Providence, Rhode Island, Nicki got reeeeeally personal with a random fan from the audience, and it's probably the most action Rhode Island's seen in a while. (No offense, Rhode Island, but your nickname is "Little Rhodie.") Watch Nicki's Rhode Island lap dance here.
+ Lil Wayne: Nicki Minaj gave her Young Money label mate and mentor Lil Wayne a lap dance, and she actually said she was "super nervous" about it. Funny, I don't look like that when I'm nervous. Watch Nicki Minaj's Lil Wayne lap dance here.
+ Steve Nash: Phoenix Suns player Steve Nash was among the lucky few who were privy to one of Nicki's famous lap dances, but this time it looked a little more "dance" and a little less "lap." And he looked terrified! Watch Nicki Minaj's Steve Nash lap dance here.
+ Travis Barker: Nicki closed out her last show on the "I Am Still Music" tour as former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker's private dancer. Travis seemed pretty at ease with the whole experience. Something tells us he's done this once or twice. Watch Nicki Minaj's Travis Barker lap dance here.
