Nicki Minaj appeared on “Live! with Regis and Kelly” from Las Vegas Monday, where the new queen of hip hop performed and then stood for the standard Q&A with the show’s hosts.

What she might not have expected, though, was the special greeting she got from host Regis Philbin in the form of a smack on her butt.

“I love the way you dress,” Regis told the 25-year-old singer. Then, eyeing her hemline, and with a smack to the backside, he said, “it looks like you have a little strap around you there, you know what I mean?”

Regis’s co-host, Kelly Ripa, was shocked, shouting, “Regis! What just happened?!”

Later, Regis also made an off-color joke.

As Nicki Minaj said that Lil Wayne gave her advice, telling her to “Go hard,” Regis chimed in: “Go hard? Wish I could!”
