Nicki Minaj Revs It Up In Her VMA Promo

Out of all the VMA promos MTV has released thus far, we’re the least impressed with Nicki Minaj’s—there’s just too many ideas thrown in the 30-second ad. Lil Minaj? I Love Lucy homages? A Grindhouse-esque movie trailer voiceover with a bad-ass Barbie riding a purple motorcycle? We get that Nicki exhibits multiple personalities in most of her verses, but that didn’t mean MTV couldn’t pick just one theme and go with it. Hey, at least Nicki looks great in it! Clip below.

“Ever since she was little, she dreamed of dominating the world of rap,” announces the voiceover while Nicki’s hit “Your Love” plays in the background. “Now the world, and every man in it, is beneath her stilettos.”
