Nicki's Follow-Up Comment to Zendaya
Nicki, of course, is referring to the entire controversy surrounding Giuliana Rancic's comments on Fashion Police, which had the whole situation spiraling into a viral news story. And Nicki's right: it's really incredible to see something good come out of such a negative situation. Talk about a new kind of squad goal.
