Nicki Minaj "Starships" (video)
Published Apr 27, 2012Overtly sexual rapper Nicki Minaj has a new video out for "Starships," off her album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, and it's a wild one, of course.
In this clip, Minaj is beamed onto a beach from a UFO and proceeds to writhe around and dance in the sand while buff men with tribal tattoos perform striking choreography. As day turns to night, Minaj's outfit and hair colour change and there's a crazy rave scene complete with neon body paint, trippy kaleidoscope effects and fire juggling.
What makes Minaj such a compelling artist is how she's able to flaunt her sexuality without sacrificing creativity or her enigmatic rapping and catchy pop hooks.
