Her Name is Onika, But You Can Call Her Nicki
Let me be honest, I don’t like it when people say I should not be a [huge] fan of Nicki Minaj because of her ”vulgar language” or ”bad image” – I don’t agree with it. We are all entitled to our opinions but I don’t like it when people try to change mine. I think Nicki is an amazing woman with an incredible story behind all of her bright wigs, loud lyrics and fame. I’ve mentioned this in a previous post before.
UPDATE [16/02]: I’m at work right now and went out of the office to make a call. I was putting my phone away and Nicki’s ‘Roman’s Holiday’ – what she performed at the Grammys – started playing… and my phone was on silent! How Scary! Ha ha!
Did you guys watch the Grammys on Sunday evening? I did not because it aired live on Monday morning at 3am in South Africa and I was going to work so needed to sleep. A lot of people asked if I saw Nicki’s performance. I did not. I finally watched it today and was a bit surprised by some aspects of it but enjoyed watching the entire performance as a whole – Nicki should consider acting, seriously. Well, she graduated with an acting major if I am not mistaken.
Nicki showed up to the event in a red hooded gown and with a man dressed up as the Pope – very unexpected even for her… very Gaga-like. Her performance? There was tons of fire, a confession at the beginning and a man dressed like the pope. Nicki levitated in the air and made some references to the Catholic faith… it was called ”The Exorcism of Roman’‘. I don’t see why people watch these performances and have their minds so restricted to any type of creativity or art. This would not be a shock if Lady Gaga did something similar – then again, everyone had a field day with her music video for ‘Judas’… there’s nothing left to point out. Heck, this performance was a tad bit creepy (in a cool way) but I also thought it had a very artistic approach. I enjoy all of her performances anyway.
Bill Donohue of the Catholic League questioned in a press release if Nicki is ”possessed” – how harsh. She is letting out her creativity.
A lot of people may not like me for saying I enjoyed this performance, but I don’t care.
Away from the Grammys, I’ve got ”Starships” on repeat – Nicki’s new single. A lot of people keep saying it is very different, but I feel it can be in the same category of ”Superbass”. I love her line where she quotes from Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. Get. The. Song. Now. I tweaked the lyrics to make it a cool blog title, it’s actually ”My name is Onika, you can call me Nicki”
Starships were meant to fly
Hands up and touch the sky
Can’t stop ’cause we’re so high
Let’s do this one more time
So, what did you think of Nicki’s performance at the Grammys? Be as honest as you want to be. Are you a fan?
