BROOKLYN, N.Y., Oct. 18 (UPI) — Nicki Minaj got the chance to meet her idol, Lauryn Hill, while backstage at the Tidal X show in Brooklyn on Saturday and literally bowed at her feet.

“I’m in love with you,” Minaj told Hill in a video posted to Instagram. “I’m in love with your spirit, your mind, everything about you.”

“Excuse me while I have an outer body experience,” Minaj captioned the video. “Shaking, crying, a MESS!!!! this lady is the reason. Omg. The QUEEN. Goddess! The epitome! The bar! The *faints*. Ms Lauryn Hill told me to keep “spittin dat fire”. Is this real life!????”
