Sam Lansky | April 2, 2013 - 12:59 pm

Ah, Cassie — the queen of icy, low-emoting dance-pop&B.

Sam Lansky | October 18, 2012 - 9:18 am

With even Barack Obama weighing in on Nicki Minaj’s interpersonal drama, you’d expect her to going a little bit higher-concept with her video strategies — maybe a video symbolically depicting her triumph over Mariah Carey in this year’s election season? — but alas, she’s kept it pretty simple in her video for “The Boys.”

Even when she’s not sparring with Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj doesn’t seem to have any trouble stirring up controversy.
