I generally like to think of myself as open-minded, but I don’t really get Nicki Minaj. There’s definitely some sort of chip I’m missing that understands her whole brand. She looks ridiculous most of the time — and not in a good way — says the most bizarre things, and I don’t really get rapping anyway. It’s talking, people. To music.
And then she does something like this — goes topless in French Montana’s latest music video for “Freaks.” I mean, if you watch it, I guess they are freaky, so there’s that.
Proceed with caution. It’s NSFW and includes explicit language and images. I found it more bearable with the sound off, but had to cover my eyes through much of it. Look, I’m all for people embracing their weirdness, but does it have to venture into porn territory?
And we actually like her on “American Idol,” because she certainly shakes things up a bit, but I also feel like her being there is degrading the whole “American Idol” brand, especially when she puts out projects like this one below.
In one way, I get that she’s encouraging people to be themselves, no matter how weird or different they are, but it’s difficult for me to encourage my kids to encourage THAT when she does stuff like the video below, if that makes sense.
The joint venture for the 28-year-old rapper and Nicki, 30, was released yesterday March 7 on BET’s 106 and Park.
See what you think. Does she go too far?
