Nicki Minaj decided to help out fans on Twitter Saturday night by offering to pay for more than $25,000 of their college costs.

She was promoting a contest on Twitter, in which fans who sent videos of themselves singing her new song "Regret in Your Tears" could win a free trip to meet her at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas.

"Well you wanna pay for my tuition?" one person asked.

"Show me straight A's that I can verify w/ur school and I'll pay it. Who wants to join THAT contest?!?!" Minaj replied. "Dead serious. Shld I set it up?"

The result? The rapper ended up offering to pay off more than $25,000 of her fans' college tuition, loans and other school costs.
