I’m not going lie. I am not a huge Nicki Minaj fan.
Yes, she has killer beats, and her songs are super catchy. But I didn’t really care for her anymore when I figured out what she was saying so quickly in her hit song, Super Bass.
He cold, he dope, he might sell coke.
Yes, cocaine dealers sound totally cold and dope ( I think “cold” and “dope” are terms of endearment). Let’s all teach our daughters to date drug dealers. *insert sarcasm*
After her performance at the Grammy Awards last night, I have moved from not caring for some of her lyrics to being completely confused by her.
She showed up on the red carpet with a fake Pope.
Which surprisingly made a little more sense once I saw her perform her new song, Roman Holiday.
Minaj began her performance in confessional booth, singing a creepy rendition of I Feel Pretty. And then she growled at the priest who was taking her confession. This obviously lead to some sort of exorcism that was shown as a movie?
*Note: question mark is not a typo*
*I am just truly not sure what that whole part was about*
After that, my brain exploded because she just sort of yelled at me through the TV for the next four minutes. Here, watch it yourself and see if your brain breaks.
Did you mistake that for some sort of seizure or bad acid trip? Me, too!
And I think the rest of the crowd was super confused as well. No one really knew when the performance was over. Everyone kind of sat there stunned and thinking, What just happened? Did someone roofie my drink?
As far as I can tell, she was the only performer to not get a standing ovation.
Since when was being shocking considered having talent? Have we gone too artistic? Is she trying to one-up our girl, Gaga? Because this feels oddly like a little song called, Judas, don’t you think?
