Dear Nicki Minaj--Why??

Yesterday evening one of my Twitter followers posted a link to the new Nicki Minaj video for her single "Super Bass." Being the curious(read:glutton for punishment) person that I am, I decided to watch it.  So what did I think?

Well....I've often been told that if you don't have something nice to say, you shouldn't say anything at all. I 've never believed in that. However, I will state one positive: The song is cute, has a nice beat, and is extremely catchy.

Now that I got that out of the way, can I be real with you all? Great. Thanks!

I realize why I can't get with Nicki Minaj.  She is always doing the very most with the very least.  Watching this video was like being in Barbie's dream house that got caught in a pink bubble and pink Bubble Yum exploded everywhere. In short, it was sensory overload. 

I have some questions though.  Perhaps if I get answers, it will help me understand and appreciate Ms. Minaj's vision. Okay, it's not very likely but let's roll with this anyway.

  • What is with Nicki and these cheap, wet n wavy wigs she insists on wearing?? Does she think they look good?? *whispers* Hey Nicki....they don't!! 
  • The backup dancers dressed like her...umm...let's just say that Pink Friday lipstick doesn't work for everyone. And I'll just leave it at that.
  • Speaking of dancing--why does Nicki insist on doing so in her videos? She's no Beyonce or Rihanna buut she's certainly no Mary J. Blige either. She reminds me of the cute girl in the club who can shake her ass and do a mean two step. And that's AWESOME. But ass shakin' and two steppin' does not an amazing music video make. Just saying. 
  • Around the 1:26 mark she starts pouring the pink liquid on herself and one of the male models. Uhhh..what IS that stuff??!?? Am I wrong for thinking it looks like Pepto-Bismol?
Okay...enough from me. Take a look yourself. What do you think? Hot video for a hot song? Is it just a fun video?

OH!!!! I almost forgot one major positive about the video! The guys. The yummy, yummy, muscular guys. *happy smile*

  1. This chick is channeling Lil Kim with the whole colored wig thing... Regardless of what she says it is clear that Kim has an influence on her career. She looks a mess all the time and I just can't... It is just ALL wrong.
