Matt Murstein is one lucky kid!

American rapper Nicki Minaj made a special appearance at an upscale Bar Mitzvah in New York over the weekend, leaving 13-year-old Matt Murstein's friends with a tough act to follow.

On Monday, Minaj posted a series of pictures to Instagram, where she has over 20 million followers.

"Get a load of these little hunks I met last night @ the Bar Mitzvah they were very ummm turnT," she captioned a photo of herself, clad in a cleavage-baring black dress, a group of starstruck pre-teens surrounding her.

The "Anaconda" singer graced the stage at the Pierre Hotel in Manhattan, performing a medley of her hit songs – including a PG-13-rated version of "Super Bass" – a throng of screaming fans wildly snapping photos in the blue-lit ballroom.

It is not known how much the rap star was paid for her performance at the Bar Mitzvah, but she reportedly charges no less than $200,000-$300,000 for private events.

Minaj also used her time on stage to share some sage advice: "Get an education. Stay in school. And don't be a slouch or a bum," she said to cheers from the young audience. "And ladies, never let a man have to take care of you. Do you understand me? Be your own woman. Be your own person."




The Bar Mitzvah boy's parents went all out for the coming-of-age soiree, rolling out a velvety red carpet beneath a step-and-repeat backdrop for photos.

After the mini-performance, the 32-year-old beauty engaged with the crowd, pointing at partygoers and asking their age. When she posed the question to the man of the hour, Matt tested out his newly-minted manhood, answering cheekily, "old enough."
