In a total why-didn’t-we-think-of-that move, Cartoon Network has enlisted Nicki Minaj to lend her bombastic voice and big personality to Steven Universe. We could give you more background on what the show is about, but we think this out-of-context blurb adds to the awesomeness. Via TV Guide Magazine:
Minaj plays Sugilite, a super-strong fusion of Garnet and Amethyst, two of the show’s magically powered “gems” who help protect the world. The character will be the latest motivation for young and enthusiastic Steven on his quest to become a fully powered guardian of humanity.
The episode, titled “Coach Steven,” will air Thursday August 21st at 6:30/5:30c on Cartoon Network.
