Don’t slow down for our sake, Nicki.
Over the weekend, Nicki Minaj delivered her third video in nearly as many weeks. While the video for “Come On A Cone” worked hard to align Nicki with rap royalty, this latest instead indulges all Nicki’s fairy tale fantasies. Sun- and synth- blissed, the Hype Williams helmed clip for the dance-y Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded track “Va Va Voom” casts Nicki as each of your standard fairest in all the land princess babes — the damsel in distress, the sleeping beauty, the wicked witch, and so forth. There are magical forests and prophetic mirrors, white horses aplenty and elaborate haute princess-couture costumes, and a prince in literally shining armor thirsting for a taste of that va-va-voom.
And as if that weren’t all enough, she also found time over the weekend to share that her previously announced three episode E! special will kick off on Sunday, November 4th at 10:30 PM ET. “u guys are going to go crazzzzyyyyy when you see it!” she tweeted in excitement. Then Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded — The Re-Up drops just two weeks after that on November 19th, and American Idol premiers in January. We’re sure this storm we’re weathering wasn’t whipped up by Nicki, right?
