Nicki Minaj has released her newest video for Super Bass and its very pretty in pink. Sporting a spotted pink bodysuit and a half blonde, half pink, Nicki gets her Roman talking about the men she loves that have the cars with the Super Bass.
Cut to a new outfit with Nicki in a seaweed green wig and some serious fierce shoes, poolside with some hot men and a pool full of Pepto Bismol. Well, I don’t think it’s actually PB but it sure looks like it. She splashes around and even throws a a glass of Pepto on her pool boy friend. How rude. Final scene finds Nicki and company covered in glow paint and kicking it club style in a black-lit room.
I wasn’t the biggest fan of this song when the Pink Friday album dropped but this colorful and fun video has kind of changed my mind. What do you think of the bubble gum like video?
Last night, the ballroom (and the leader board) was rocked with stellar and lack luster performances. In a competition that is so close with minimal points separating the top from the bottom, every step counts at this point in the competition. We kicked the night off with two team dances which found both teams tied at 30 points each. When these scores were added to the the individual scores, Hines Ward and Ralph Macchio found themselves at the top with Kirstie Alley and Romeo at the bottom. But who will be eliminated after America’s votes?
Tonight, we will be treated to some spectacular performances from James Blunt, Young Money star Nicki Minaj, a Macy’s Star of Dance performance featuring Wayne Brady and a ballet prodigy. Oh ya, and someone gets eliminated. Its going to be an action packed night so let’s not waste any time.
This past weekend, my friend Dan and I headed over to Ultra Suede in WEHO to attend Paul Nicholl’s weekly Friday night party, Hype. Nicki Minaj was going to be there and after going to Hype the weekend prior to see Kelly Rowland and Luciana, I figured it would be another awesome evening. Little did I know what was in store…
We showed up to UltraSuede around 9pm and were treated to a performance by Ms. Candis Cayne. She opened her act with ‘Move’ by Dream Girls and ended with Lady Gaga’s latest… thing ‘Judas.’ I’m really wanting a break from Lady G right now, but Candis’s performance actually made me enjoy the song more than I thought I did – maybe it was her backup dancers and their amazing legs that I was into, but the song started to grow on me. But I digress. Candis was great and entertained the crowd with some hair whipping and a fan that even Beyonce’s wig would be jealous of.
One thing I don’t do very often is go to my favorite artists’ websites. However, today was different. I happened to stumble upon Britney Spears’ official website and low and behold, I was greeted by a random countdown to something that is titled Sicker Than The Remix. I thought to myself, that’s quite the site takeover for just a Britney remix. And then, I learned more.
Thanks to a UK friend on Facebook (thank you Michael Morgan Bain), I discovered that Britney’s site wasn’t the only one displaying a countdown. Apparently, Nicki Minaj and Ke$ha had also joined in on the countdown fun. Why? Because the remix involved the two of them as well.
GET OUT! How awesome. It only makes sense. Ke$ha helped pen the hot Britney track and now with Nicki jumping on tour with her this summer, it only makes sense for all three to make a remix together. Now I have to admit, the preview doesn’t sound too promising yet, BUT I will await for the whole thing before I pass judgement.
Fans rejoice, your wish has come true. Nicki Minaj has officially signed on the dotted line to join Miss Britney Spears on her official summer tour replacing the commitaphobe Enrique Iglesias. A while back, it seemed like a few artists were vying for the spot but the Young Money star will reign supreme as the opening act. This is huge for Britney and bring her to a whole other level in my opinion. This has now officially become a power house tour.
Two other acts joining the Femme Fatale will be Jessie and the Toy Boys and Nervo. (I have never heard of either of the groups so I’ll provide some video for them after the jump to educate us all.) The tour kicks of on June 16th in Sacramento, CA. Here is what Brit revealed about the upcoming tour.
“This is the Femme Fatale tour and I’m thrilled to have the hot Nicki Minaj join me and Jessie and the Toy Boys and Nervo will get everyone on the dance floor. Can’t wait to take the Femme Fatales on the road.”
Only moments after Britney Spears announced on Good Morning America that she would be touring this summer with Enrique Iglesias, the latin hottie pulled out completely from the opening act gig. Better sooner than later I guess. So now with the slot available, many artists have been in “talks” to fill his shoes, but who will get the coveted spot?
DJ Pauly D was first to head in to talks with Britney’s people after Enrique dropped the bomb of his departure. This wouldn’t be the first time he had opened for Britney as he spun before her surprise performance in Vegas and interluded each set with some of his own stylings. Is a DJ enough to keep a Britney crowd occupied before she hits the stage?
Another male in talks for the opening spot is Jonas Brother, Joe Jonas. Brother Nick has released a few solo tracks but I haven’t heard anything from Joe. Would this be his solo musical debut? Joe has said in interviews lately that dance music is where his heart is which makes his ‘style’ a perfect fit for the opening bill.
Nicki’s third single off her Pink Friday album Moment 4 Life had its music video drop on MTV last night accompanying an interview with the rap superstar. The track featuring label-mate Drake tells the story of two friends who aspire to be rappers and grow up to become famous. So, its only natural that two overnight success stories would collaborate on the song and the video.
The video features a special guest appearance from Nicki’s alter ego Roman Zolanksi mother, Martha Zolanksi who plays Nicki’s fairy godmother. The video is very Cinderella-esque as we see Nicki at the ball and meet her prince charming, Drake there. Rumors are constantly swirling about these two being involved romantically so they both thought this video would be a fun way to play on that.
The song opened up to some mixed reviews from the critics but I have to say it is one of my favorites on the album and the video is pretty awesome too. Its big everything as Nicki does best and directed by Chris Robinson. Nicki recently performed this track on The Ellen Show and you can probably expect to hear it on SNL this Saturday when she appears alongside Jesse Eisenberg who will host this weekend.
Ding ding, round 2 of my new favorite post of the week, Who’d You Rather. Last week, I pitted two male models against each other. Although both in the same field, you highly agreed that Todd Sanfield should be crowned the winner. This week, I’m pitting two male models once again, but this time, they have something else in common: they have both starred in female power house music videos. Meet today’s match up.
Brandon Stoughton is not only ridiculously good looking but also the male star in the video for Britney Spears’ Womanizer. Rumour has it that he’s gay and has a little bit of a romantic history with one Lance Bass. He is an LA native born in 1981 and in ’07, snagged his first big ad campaign with Calvin Klein.
Willy Monfret is the steamy tall dark and handsome man with the most appealing eyes in Nicki Minaj’s video for Right Thru Me. This leading male was discovered in Paris when he was 27 years old after leaving the world of athletics due to an injury. Naturally, with a body like that, he decided to make the move to modelling. Good choice.
