VMAs Fug Carpet: Nicki Minaj


You win, Nicki. Lady Gaga just looked like a refried Travolta with three days of body odor. But you? You look like if Hannibal Lecter got drunk at Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium.

    “Hey, congrats on the baby, Beyonce! I wore your gift — please, take one. BUT ONLY ONE.” I. DIE. You ladies are too funny for words.

    I get that Gaga can be a bit much, but this is just unorganized. At least Gaga usually has a theme of some kind, Minaj literally looks like she applied spray glue and then rolled in the toy section at Goodwill. I can usually get behind the crazy, but this is just stupid.

    I LOVE the look on Beyonce’s dress holders face. He looks repulsed and like he’ll cut her if she gets any closer to Bey.

    “You look like if Hannibal Lecter got drunk at Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium.” – MORE OF THIS PLZ. She should really contact Nick Cave (the visual artist, not the musician) for a sound suit, as his are WAY better than hers.

    Oh look, now you have your graphic for The Illustrated Dictionary of Fashion’s entry on “Trying too hard”.

    um. I know this has nothing to do with Niki, but … can you get the Death Valley ads off your site soon? I’ve closed the banner ad, but the little trailer that plays on the sidebar everytime is …. blech.

    On the upside, that mask is obscuring the usual oh-so-*~quirky~* facial tic-style expression she likes to make for the cameras.

    That guy holding Beyonce’s dress in the second slide is awesome. That’s the look I’d be wearing too. It’s the “Girlfriend, get over yourself.” look with a dose of half-hidden eye-roll.

    I kind of love Nicki Minaj. She reminds me of Flavor Flav in an odd sort of way.

    Her hair looks like intestines.

    @Aaron, I am prematurely handing the Comment of The Post award to you. Her hair does look like intestines.

    I absolutely love that color on Beyonce and the fact that she has a full-time train wrangler. I think he’s the same dude that held her up while she tried to “walk” up the stairs at the Met Ball.
    As for the other one, who I refer to as Nikki Mirage (because I am hoping that, like a mirage, she will go away) it’s odd that I have never heard one note of her music but yet I am already tired of her.

    I feel like there was a context between Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj to see who could dress the most ridiculous.

    Just….. what? Why can’t people just SING? Let your talent (or not) speak for itself. Did you see Adele dress like a cracked out muppet? No.

    @TaraMisu, Adele doesn’t have to dress like a cracked out muppet. She is not trying to distract the audience from musical mediocrity.

    Nicki Minaj just pulled out her secret Mortal Kombat roots, “Fashionality!”

    Was I the only one who saw Nicki Minaj’s hair and got a craving for shrimp chips?

    How is it that Nicki Minaj can look like FAO Schwartz dumpster and yet…Bey is the bugnut crazy one who has to employ a “train wrangler” for a dress that’s basically a tent with a 6″ train?

    At what point do you become so rich and so famous that you can’t even wear clothes like a normal person?

    I don’t oft get the chance to recoil at the site of “fashion”. Thanks Ms. Minaj.

    I just can’t with this one. It is that irritating blinking/winking thing she does and the overall terribleness of her music

    Wow. Just…wow. My eys are bleeding. Must shut down vision from overstimulation.

    I think the little tea pot is her handbag. I love her, because she’s full frontal cray-cray, not just hinting like KP, and not pretending it’s Art like She Who Must Not Be Named. That is the exact shade of pink KP’s hairdresser should have used.

    Where Gaga is all about gaga, Nicki is all about FUN!
    Lookin’ forward to voting for you come next year’s March Madness!

    She totally raided my 7 year old niece’s bedroom, applied double sided tape all over her body, put all her bounty on the floor, threw herself on it and rolled around until she was completely covered! Shame on you, Minaj… What is my niece going to play with now?

    She is cosplaying PONPONPON by Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. Seriously. Go watch that video, and once you’ve managed to scoop your brains off the floor, come back and tell me that I’m right.

    I love this. I’m sorry. I don’t know why, either.

    Guys, the tattoo on her arm says “God is often with you”. Not always–I mean, sometimes God’s gotta take a break, right?

    I didn’t notice at first, but does it look like she is in her stocking feet?

    I love how Bey had a full-time train holder, but Nicki Montage had to carry her own tail all night long. Some day, Nicki. Actually, probably not.

    someone dunked her in a vat of glue and shot her with a cannon through a party-supplies warehouse.

    I’ll be the first to admit that I am probably 10 years older than MTV’s target market…so maybe I’m just not GETTING this. But why can’t some people (infamous Gaga, Katy Perry and Nicki) stop being such attention-whores??? Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Gaga tunes, but it totally takes away from her voice. These costumes are played out and desperate.

    She’s trying to be Gaga, right?

    Can we have a moratorium on any more Nicki Minaj or Lady Gaga fugs??? There’s NO point to them, unless we just want to marvel at the outrageous weirdness. They’re obviously on a whole other planet fashion-wise and do not dress for approval or even ordinary outrage.
