During yesterday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Ellen DeGeneres presented a parody of Nicki Minaj's upcoming ABC Family sitcom, which will be about her upbringing and childhood in Queens, New York. The parody depicted a young Nicki, as well as her family and dog, to have comically large butts.
