This was like a breath of fresh air after you’ve been on your sickbed for four days.

I LOVE this on Nicki– it’s great that she found a way to keep some personality while also toning it down enough to let her pretty face come out to play. She looks totally glamorous, but still fun, thanks to the spicy kelly green skirt and the lacy top and the pink curls. Basically, whatever saloon she’s singing at, I want to go there and drink the hell out of its moonshine and then win her in a poker game.

I knew it wouldn’t last, though. Eventually, she was bound to resume looking like the love child spawned from a raucous three-way between Dr. Seuss, a disco ball, and Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” video. You can’t deny genetics.
