Nicki Minaj is wearing a pink bikini and a green wig at the beach while filming the music video for her new single, “Starship.”
Actually, this is the most normal we’ve ever seen Nicki Minaj, aside from the green hair.
Nicki is frolicking on the sands of Oahu, Hawaii and when she stepped off the plane she tweeted, “The kids @ the airport were like: waikikiiiiiii!!!!! I bust out laughin.”
Am I missing something? Anyways, Nicki continued with some more nearly incoherent twitter babble.
“Can’t wait 2get on set. Dem male modelz iz poppinton #starshipsvideo.”
Poppinton? What is that? Is that the neighborhood where men are “poppin”? Is that somewhere near “rack city?”
Nicki’s new single “Starship” is off her upcoming sophomore album, “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded” will release on April 3rd.
Nicki Minaj set the bar high for her album release, she teased MTV, “April 3 is gonna be a doozy. It’s gonna be crazy. It’s gonna be important for just hip-hop culture and pop culture. It’s gonna be very big.”
Nicki dropped “Starships” on Valentines Day, and unlike her other tracks, there is very little rapping from Nicki. She raps over the intro and then it turns into one of her sing/auto-tune/talk-to-the-beat mixes.
Nicki told MTV about how she’s moved from a rapper to a pop star, “I guess I am pop culture just because what I’m doing seems to be popular. When people want to do what you’re doing, it’s kinda popular.”
