Nicki Minaj’s “Starships” Video Has Landed: Watch

By: Becky Bain / April 26, 2012
Nicki Minaj claimed that the video for her Roman Reloaded single “Starships” was “going to be very, very saucy” — and after watching the premiere of the anticipated clip, saucy isn’t the half of it. In the Anthony Mandler-directed video, Harajuku Barbie gets literally beamed down to the beach, and her mission is to throw the best damn party of all time in what might just be a backdrop from Lost. Minaj also sets to prove that her derriere is all her — there’s no way you could fit padding in a skimpy bikini like that. Watch the video for her RedOne-produced smash above, and tell us your thoughts in the comments.
