Nicki Minaj has come from rags to riches, but TMZ broke a story that is basically a sin in the world of foodies. “We” love A1 steak cause. We just do! It pretty much makes everything taste good with all those spices and salt. But, Nicki went and did a dastardly, dastardly deed! She was eating at BOA, a fancy restaurant and committed a sin. The upscale spot had a chef cook her a steak. And Nicki, in the middle of her meal, demanded that somebody go and get her some damn A1 steak sauce. They did just that: THEY WENT OUTSIDE OF THE RESTAURANT AND GOT HER SOME FREAKIN’ A1 STEAK SAUCE. This is such a diss to the chef! LOL! That chef is probably on suicide watch right now. Anyway, Nicki clearly isn’t Hollywood yet so f**k American Idol. Rock on, K-Mart! She’s real as real gets. She still eats her food, no matter how fancy, with A1.
Man, A1 better get her an endorsement deal, because she reportedly ALWAYS eats her meat with A1. She has me thinking all freaky right now. Shame on me.

An unidentified 47-year-old man was brought to Northwestern Memorial Hospital after he was shot in the head this morning near the Merchandise Mart. It appears to be a graze wound and police say he is expected to survive.
Early reports from the scene say the victim gave a thumbs-up as he was being put into an ambulance.
Police say the victim worked in the West Mart Center, formerly known as the Apparel Center, across the street from the Merchandise Mart.
He was apparently walking in through the dock area near the corner of Kinzie and Kingsbury shortly before 6 a.m., when witnesses say they heard two quick shots, saw the victim fall and a masked man in dark clothing run west across the Kinzie Street bridge — then disappear.
Detectives made quick work of gathering evidence and clearing the scene.
Police have not released a description of the suspect or a motive for the shooting.
The West Mart Center is home to a Holiday Inn, Comcast SportsNet, and the Chicago Sun-Times. It is across the street from the East Bank Club, where Mayor Rahm Emanuel and other celebrities like Oprah Winfrey work out.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania’s governor says he intends to file a federal antitrust lawsuit against the NCAA in an effort to overturn what he said were ”harsh penalties” against Penn State because of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
Gov. Tom Corbett, flanked by members of his staff and current and former students and athletes from the school, says the NCAA punished students, the community and businesses around the university, not the former assistant football coach who molested children.
The sanctions imposed in July included a $60 million fine for child abuse prevention grants, a four-year bowl game ban for the university’s marquee football program and the forfeiture of 112 wins.
Corbett says the lawsuit to be filed later Wednesday would show the NCAA actions were overreaching and unlawful
ORLANDO, Fla. — Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose traveled with the team Tuesday night to Florida and will be with them all week as he continues his rehab from a torn left ACL.
This is the first trip with the Bulls for the former MVP since tearing his ACL in the first game of the Eastern Conference playoffs against the Philadelphia 76ers on April 28. Rose was rehabbing in the Los Angeles area when the Bulls faced the Clippers on Nov. 17, but this will mark the first time Rose has accompanied the team and its medical staff since his surgery May 12.
It is still unclear as to when Rose will return to the floor, but Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau admitted recently that Rose has started doing the non-contact drills in practice. Thibodeau has stated repeatedly that Rose is still ‘a ways away’ from playing in a game and hasn’t started taking contact in practice.
Rose has been running and cutting for several weeks and seems to be in better spirits around the United Center and the Berto Center. The Bulls play the Orlando Magic on Wednesday and the Miami Heat on Friday.
As Rose continues his rehab, the Bulls shored up their point guard rotation by fully guaranteeing Nate Robinson‘s contract for the rest of the season, according to a source familiar with the situation. The Chicago Tribune reported earlier that Robinson’s deal would be guaranteed. The move did not come as a surprise given that Robinson, who signed a partially guaranteed deal as a free agent before the season, has been a spark-plug off the Bulls’ bench this year, scoring 11 points and dishing out four assists a game.
