In 2012, Nicky Minaj shocked audiences and the Catholic church when she arrived on the red carpet at the Grammys with an older man dressed up as the Pope for her date. Unsurprisingly, the church had something to say about Minaj’s date’s outfit, although there wasn’t really much that they could do about it.

But it only got worse as her performance of "Roman Holiday" featured yet another man dressed up as a priest performing an exorcism on somebody.
