The Brief: These memes pair a photo of Nicki Minaj with the caption "so there's this..." to talk about crushes and love interests.


“So there’s this…” memes feature a picture of Nicki Minaj pulling her blue hair back and looking bashful to portray situations where someone is describing a crush or fantasy. Nicki rocked this look back in 2011 while announcing the nominees for the American Music Awards.

These memes have a deep fried-style filter added to them and feature various crushes or infatuations that people have. They can be found on Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, and other social media platforms. The format rose in popularity in 2020.
