If there was a book on how to be the coolest cat alive, the one and only Ms. Lauryn Hill certainly has a chapter all to herself. As reigning priestess of The Fugees and a star in her own right with her landmark album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, she has been inspiring fans for generations. And it turns out that one of her biggest fans is none other than Nicki Minaj, who in a rare moment of imperfection, broke out into actual tears upon meeting her last night.

The blessed union of iconic musician and fan girl took place at last night’s action-packed charity concert by TIDAL. Both Minaj and Hill were among the evening’s performers (of which the setlist also included Beyoncé, Alicia Keys and Common), and so they had a chance for a little meet and greet backstage. After literally bowing down on the ground, they were able to take some cute pics, which you can see below:
