Where’s the line between trying hard and playing human fondue with a blue paint can? Actually, it doesn’t matter because superstar Nicki Minaj parachuted over that line in her photoshoot in the March issue of Vogue. The human Pinterest board is known for her style as much as her music and it seems like she’s entering the dangerous Lady Gaga territory where she’s going to get to the point where she just can’t outdo herself.
For the past few years Lady Gaga’s paraded one ridiculous outfit/costume in front of us after another. A Kermit dress, a meat dress, an egg cage. She’s done it all. Hence why this year she slipped past the Grammy red carpets and sat calmly with some kind of mesh bag over her head. While some might claim her move was one of maturity, I’m certain that it was one of shame. The great Lady Gaga was out of ideas. At this point a shocking outfit for her would consist of Gap jeans and a white t-shirt — and if she wore that, no one would recognize her.
I now fear that’s where Nicki Minaj is headed. Her outfits have gone way beyond standard red carpet chic and now require the use of 3D glasses and/or acid. And this latest photoshoot for Vogue just proves my point. She’s blue.
To me that says that either she had intimate sex with a smurf or she’s also running low on shocking costume ideas.
Or, I suppose the third option for this get-up is that she’s doing some sort of avant-garde audition for Avatar. If so, we can only hope James Cameron is an avid Vogue reader.
