Young Money rapper Nicki Minaj is reportedly a big fan of hit reality TV show “The Jersey Shore” and especially no other than Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi.

According to Snooki, Nicki Minaj is an avid follower of the weekly “Jersey Shore” adventures.

“The most recent [unexpected fan] would probably be [rapper] Nicki Minaj,” Snooki revealed in an interview with CNN.

“I met her at Salute the Troops for VH1 and she was backstage and I was like, ‘I really want to meet her!’ And they went up to her and she was like, ‘Yeah I want to meet Snooki’, so, you know, we kind of like hit it off. She’s a big fan of the show.”
