Taking a cue from the ever so popular fairy tale genre, Nicki Minaj presents us with her video for her latest song: “Va Va Voom.” But don’t think for one second that it’s all fluff. Despite the fact that the opening scene shows unicorns running through a forest stream in soft focus, this is Nicki Minaj. Things are about to get weird.
True to form, Nicki raps effortlessly while wearing colorful wigs and various outfits, including a gigantic, wooden, ornately-carved unicorn headpiece complete with epaulettes.
Wide eyed and looking a touch crazed, Nicki stares into the camera singing, “I wanna give you one last option/ I wanna give you one last chance/ If you’re looking for the main attraction/ Just hold on tight and let me do my dance/ if you want it I’m gonna be va va voom, vow.”
She continues to gyrate her way through the video portraying everything from the coy damsel in distress to the evil queen. There’s even a little nod to Snow White sans the 7 sidekicks.
All in all the video is 100% pure Nicki Minaj and she proves to the world once again that as of right now, she IS the fairest of them all.
