ROMAN HOLIDAY – Nicki Minaj live at The Grammys 2012 <3
Hip Hop performances are either lavish or slutty, nothing else really gets us frothing at the gob. Maybe Eminem with his chainsaw before he started wearing those little glasses and wearing a suit but I’ve spent this morning climbing over my chair in rabid excitement, like a monkey at a Safari Park pulling off wing mirrors and jumping on bonnets. Nicki Minaj has pissed me off recently with some emo bullshit like ‘Marilyn Monroe’ which i refuse to even link to cause it reminds me of Total Eclipse of the Heart. When she sings about love or being sad IDGAF, when she rolls her eyes back and starts juddering rapping as if she’s just been fingered by Ted Bundy, THEN I CARE, I CARE SO MUCH.
So when she used her 5 minutes of Grammy stage time to tick all of these boxes:
- TERRIFY A CATHOLIC PRIEST
- GET EXORCISED
- PERFORM STRAPPED DOWN TO A HOSPITAL BED
- HAVE CATHOLIC THEMED BACKING DANCERS
- SCREAM IN HER BRITISH ALTER-EGO ROMAN WITHOUT SOUNDING LIKE A CUNT
- LOOK PENG
I imagine there’s some frigid old knickers in a twist after watching this performance. But I’m SO pleased i could puke.
All the video links have been taken down obviously, but this one is still gold, go watch it 14 times and fill your office with Roman accents plz.
