Good news, Barbz! Nicki Minaj premiered her new video for ‘Stupid H–’ via Twitter today, writing, “RT @VEVO: NSFW: @NICKIMINAJ #StupidH–in all its explicit glory, Barbz! http://vevo.ly/w31VtE RT that! #TWERK.”
From the bright lipstick to the wide array of wigs, the whole video is distinctly Nicki. Also, just a heads up — the language is as explicit as Minaj says!
The clip opens with Minaj clad in a long black wig and matching ice blue eye makeup and lipstick, contorted and standing atop a tiered platform looking like an action figure. As she spews her rapid-fire rhymes, the shot changes to a wavy pink-wigged Minaj in the driver’s seat of a (what else?) hot pink convertible.
When the chorus kicks in, Minaj is donning bizarrely pale face makeup, penciled on freckles and wildly winged white eyeliner, with the image intermittently emblazoned with animated stars. Next, Minaj is in a canary yellow cage, wearing leopard print lingerie and heels, calling out to Michael Jackson’s chimpanzee: “Look, Bubbles / Go back to your habitat / MJ callin’ and I ain’t havin’ that.”
In the clip, Minaj announces she’ll be at the 2012 Super Bowl before appearing as an exaggerated, baby doll like figure of herself on a giant pink chair. In a sing-song, aptly doll-like voice, Minaj calls out someone (likely Lil Kim), singing, “Stupid h– should have befriended me / Then she could have probably came back.”
The video is full of quick shots, a ton of dancing and a lot of stellar, strange aesthetics — not to mention that the song is almost guaranteed to get stuck in your head. Nicki Minaj may be a lot of things, but stupid isn’t one of them.
