The Daily Grind Video

Nicki Minaj came through the TIME 100 Gala to make a statement.

The 33-year-old, who was named one of 2016’s Most Influential People by the magazine, arrived to Lincoln Center in New York City wearing a lace ensemble with a plunging neckline. She paired the look with over-the-knee boots. Are you feeling it?

Nicki walked the carpet with Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci, who designed her dress for the evening. Once inside, Nicki shut down the stage with a performance of “Anaconda,” but things got awkward when she chose to dedicate the song to Joe Biden and Donald Trump.

I’m very political and I would like to dedicate a song, just in the spirit of unity, to Joe Biden and Donald Trump,” Nicki said. Wut?

Check out who else was in attendance and who wore what below.
