Everyone, meet little Nicki Minaj! Child actress Ariana Neal was spotted shooting the pilot episode of the rapper's new series in Queens, New York.
Ariana has only just started, but already she's getting her hands dirty! The adorable actress plays a young Nicki, and was cast shortly after the 31-year-old Queens native announced that her life story was coming to the small screen.
And Ariana is quite a lucky young lady, after Nicki stated via Instagram, "I am honored and excited to announce that I've literally hand picked the main characters of my scripted series."
The ABC family show chronicles the early years of Nicki's life, before she attained international stardom.
And of course, Nicki will also appear on the show and be its executive producer. Now that's a big deal!
