Fame has its benefits as Nicki Minaj recently learned. A cop let the blonde-haired MC slide on a traffic ticket in exchange for an autograph.

According to TMZ, a cop stopped Nicki in New York City and apparently let the rap superstar go once she snagged an autograph for her daughter. "My beautiful barb Ayana! You and your mom are amazing! Love always, Nicki," the Young Money rhymer wrote on the autograph to the starstruck cop's daughter. She shared a photo of the note on her Twitter page.

No word on what Nicki's actual violation was. When TMZ asked an NYPD official about whether an investigation would be launched to get to the bottom of the supposed preferential treatment, they reportedly said they had more important things to do.
