Oh look… Nicki Minaj is bisexual again. Remember when that was her thing a couple years back, pre-mainstream stardom? Yeah, well lately all that “I like girls too” business seemed to register more “Katy Perry” rather than “Ellen” on the pop culture lesbi-meter. However, Nic’s latest video playfully suggests that her Cassie shoutout a few years ago wasn’t an empty boast after all.
“The Boys” is slated to be included on the deluxe edition of Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded and the video offers more of the candy coated visuals the we’ve come to expect from La Minaj. The zany wigs and technicolor backgrounds are here again for our entertainment and we get a “Bills, Bills, Bills” homage(?) and the uh, highly anticipated Cassie comeback as well. Aside from Cass and Nicki’s faux-mosexual schtick, this “Boys” single is pretty much business as usual from the Head Barb In Charge, both visually and sonically.
More of the same isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it certainly doesn’t help matters either if an artist’s image/sound is already dangerously close to having worn out its welcome. I dunno… don’t love it, but I don’t hate it either. Grade: C+
