At the prestigious event on Monday (May 2), the 39-year-old rapper stunned in an all-black Burberry bustier gown, with feathers, leather leggings and finished off the look with a baseball cap.
While her outfit choice garnered a fair amount of attention, some fans have noticed the star became out of breathe while walking up the red carpet stairs.
The 'Anaconda' rapstress was assisted by several members of her team to help her up the stairs, as her gown appeared to be heavy.
American blog TheShadeRoom shared a viral video, where the star seems as though she had a hard time catching her breath. Fans wasted no time, pointing out that Minaj was seen panting while walking up the stairs.
One fan joked: "That’s how I be on treadmill in 2.5 minutes" while another joked: "How I feel walking up 3 steps. I get it sis".
Another Instagram user wrote: "Dang I thought I be out of breath from just walking😂😂😂" while another added: "my sista out of breath walking up then damn stairs."

While struggling to walk up the stairs, Minaj paused for a brief interaction where she called out an unidentified reporter.
The star spoke to the reporter, who supposedly leaked that she was going to be at the event after a four year absence.
“Are you the man that leaked that I was gonna be here? It was you," Minaj can be heard saying in videos from the event, before adding that she was "about to come up to you and slap the sh*t out of you.”
