Nicki Minaj’s booty dance at the 2013 Billboard Awards left viewers quite confused. While some adored the deadpan shot of Nicki’s (enhanced) cakes, others thought the hip-popping spectacle was inappropriate for mainstream television. I wondered if the Billboard producers had even seen her routine before she performed? Turns out, they were very aware of the twerking that was going to happen! In a behind the scenes video titled “The Road To Billboard,” Nicki practiced the steamy dance on her rumored boyfriend SB. This all brings me to the choreographer! None other than Miss Boom Kack, Laurieann Gibson herself!
Laurieann Gibson is well-respected in the industry. She has worked with everyone from Lady Gaga to Julia Styles! Her life story was portrayed in the film “Honey” which she also made an appeared in. She’s even released music of her own! Outside of her genius movement, Laurieann has quite the personality! She’s just so damn entertaining!
We relived her greatest “Boom Kack” movements while on the hit show “Making The Band” (with a bonus from “Honey” of course)!
