Nicki Minaj gives Boris a hilarious English accent in a video and calls Laura Kuenssberg a ‘dumbo'
Nicki Minaj has mocked Boris Johnson in a video recorded for the PM following her spat with Chris Whitty.
The rapper is embroiled in a bizarre row with England's Chief Medical Officer after he denied her claims about the vaccine as "ridiculous" and "strange".

The rapper told her 22.6m followers that a friend of her cousin's got the jab and his "testicles became swollen" - so she would wait for more information before getting the vaccine herself.
She did not attend last night's Met Gala because she's not yet vaccinated, telling fans: "They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. if I get vaccinated it won't for the Met."
Responding to misinformation on the jabs, Professor Whitty said: "There are a number of myths that fly around, some of which are just clearly ridiculous, and some of which are clearly designed to just scare.
"That happens to be one of them. And it's untrue."
He said those who are deliberately "trying to discourage other people from taking a vaccine which could be life-saving" should be "ashamed".
Meanwhile, at this afternoon's press conference, the PM said: "I'm not as familiar with the work of Nicki Minaj as I probably should be but I am familiar with Nikki Kanani, superstar GP of Bexley.
"She will tell you that vaccines are wonderful and everybody should get them.
"So I prefer to listen to Nikki Kanani."
Rapper Nicki has already hit back - using a mocking British accent to address Mr Johnson directly.
She initially told followers on social media of Prof Whitty: "I love him even tho I guess this was a diss? The accent ugh! Yassss boo!!!"
And the star then shared a voice recording posted on Twitter with the caption: "Send this to the Prime Minister and let him know they lied on me.
"I forgive him. No one else. Only him."
In the recording, she said: "Yes, hello Prime Minister, Boris, it's Nicki Minaj - I was just calling to tell you that you were so amazing on the news this morning.
"And I'm actually British. I was born there. I went to university there. I went to Oxford.
"I went to school with Margaret Thatcher. And she told me so many nice things about you.
"I'd love to send you my portfolio of my work, since you don't know much about me, I'm a big, big star in the United States."
Nicki's video is clearly tongue-in-cheek.
She was born in Trinidad and Tobago in 1982, during Margaret Thatcher's premiership, and was raised in Queens, New York.
The performer has attracted criticism after using her platform to share a story about a man who allegedly became impotent after the jab.
There is no evidence to back up any suggestion of a link between impotence and the jab.
She tweeted: "My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent. His testicles became swollen.
"His friend was weeks away from getting married, now the girl called off the wedding.
"So just pray on it & make sure you’re comfortable with ur decision, not bullied."
A recent study in the US showed that that both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are safe for the male reproductive system.
And Piers Morgan has weighed into the row this afternoon.
He said: "Professor Whitty beefing with the ghastly Nicki Minaj (one of the rudest little madams I've ever met) is not the breaking news that I expected today - but it's most welcome.
"She's peddling lies that will cost lives."
Claiming she's never actually met him, Nicki replied: "'Rudest little madam'. I like it. Has a special ring to it.
"Thanks Pierce. Love the accent. I’d love to come chat. Scones. Tea. Clown nose & big red shoes for you."
He fired back immediately, telling the star: "Madam, we met on America's Got Talent when you appeared as a guest act - but you refused to say hello to my three young sons because you were ‘too busy’.
"Oh, and it’s ‘Piers’ - I know, we Brit names all sound alike."
