Paul George reveals why he declined Nicki Minaj’s music video cameo offer: “This is a big W”

The intricate relation between sport personalities and pop culture is nothing out of the ordinary. The NBA stars are no different to it and over the years multiple instances were in display where slam and glam coexist in melodic harmony. From Michael Jordan being in a movie to Stephen Curry being a singer, to Jimmy Butler vibing in a music video, the NBA has crossed the divide with great success.

Paul George could’ve been another inductee in that list when he was eyed by Nicky Minaj for a special collab but things didn’t quite resonate this time around.

Why Paul George declined Nicki Minaj’s offer?

Paul George revealed that he got an offer from the “Queen of Rap”, Nicky Minaj but he had to turn her down.

While talking to his cohost of “Podcast P Show”, Jackie Long, PG-13 said how he had a golden opportunity to make a cameo in Nicki Minaj’s music video, “You know what’s funny, this was maybe like a year or two ago, Nicki Minaj reached out for me to be in her music video”. The 9-time NBA All-Star continued, “I looked at Daniela, Daniela looked at me … ‘ay, I ain’t going to be able to do it.'”

The 33-year-old jokingly said that his wife, Daniela would have minded him playing the role of Nicki’s lover, however, later he claimed that his wife was excited for him but he had to decline the offer due to his tight schedule.

Acknowledging her celebrity status, the Clipper’s star added, “It would’ve been dope. It’s Nicki Minaj, one of the biggest female artists – not even just female, biggest artists of our lifetime!”

And that’s how Paul George missed the chance of joining the NBA players who have made cameos in music videos like Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O’Neal, Kevin Durant, Allen Iverson and Jimmy Butler.

NBA fans applaud Paul George for rejecting Nicki’s offer

Nowadays, every news finds a spot on social media and especially when it is regarding celebrities of Nicki Minaj and Paul George’s status. The NBA star’s rejection news surfaced the internet and has been grabbing attention from the fans. The NBA community can be seen supporting George’s decision with reasons of their own. Here are some of the comments and tweets of the fans on X (formerly Twitter):

Calling “PG13” intelligent, a fan commented, “This is a big W for PG! Intelligent man!”

Someone dragged Paul’s wife and admiring her beauty, a fan wrote, “Have you seen his wife ? I would brick that too for having a wife like that lmao”

Guessing that Minaj would have eventually offered George for marriage, a fan commented, “Just being because she is rich and famous doesn’t mean she wifey material or even compatible for him … PG did what works for him”

While another fan wrote, “He dodged a huge bullet” by rejecting the rapper’s offer.

George has recovered from his knee injury and has been averaging 22.1 points, 5.3 rebounds and 3.5 assists. With the playoffs around the corner, it is certain that he won’t be seen in a music video anytime soon.
