ABC Family, what’s good?
Nicki herself revealed the actress who will be playing her when the comedy premieres on Freeform, and she’s an adorable ball of talent named Ariana Neal!
Ariana may only be 11 years old, but you might actually recognize her thanks to her high profile roles in Fruitvale Station and Get Hard.
Make sure to catch Ariana as Nicki Minaj when Nicki premieres in 2016.
Ch-ch-check out all of the good things Nicki had to say about her mini-me (below)!!!
I literally cried watching her taped audition. I demanded to meet her! Sat in a room with her teaching her how to rap by doing a beat on the table & forcing her to stay on beat! Lol. Then pulled out all the attitude she had in her lil body. Haha! She’s tough! And so sweet & cute. #ArianaNeal #LilNicki Welcome to the family lil lady bug! ├░┼╕╦£╦£├░┼╕╦£╦£├░┼╕╦£╦£├░┼╕╦£╦£├░┼╕╦£╦£├░┼╕╦£╦£├░┼╕╦£╦£ #ABCFamily #Freeform #NickiA photo posted by Nicki Minaj (@nickiminaj) on Dec 18, 2015 at 12:04pm PST
