Just when we were worried that the reverent atmosphere on the Grammys red carpet would mean zero Lady Gaga Egg moments tonight — BAM! Cameras got a glimpse of a mysterious hooded figure exiting her limo. And as she got out and turned around, we recognized her as Nicki Minaj and simultaneously noticed a man dressed, well, we don’t know our Catholic formal wear too well, but we think he was dressed as the Pope. Or a bishop. And then, as our brains began to soak in all of this data, we got a better look at Nicki’s face. Which is done very simply, devoid of her usual Barbie-doll exaggerations, and looks absolutely gorgeous.
We’re told Nicki’s hood/gown is Versace. We will definitely update this post as soon as we have any more information. Like on where you, too, can purchase a Pope to escort you through town, for instance.
Question for the room: Did Nicki Minaj really need to go over-the-top to get noticed tonight? Or would she have been better served by just looking good?
