You know you’re a massive global star when your official video has scored more than five and a half million views on YouTube in just a matter of days. Then again, Nicki Minaj is so hot right now. Her latest single ‘Starships’ has notched up three times platinum here in Australia in just ten weeks on sale (yep, that’s an average of 21,000 copies a week) and it hasn’t even made it to the top spot.
Naturally, given the name of the track, Nicki (what with a shock of fluorescent yellow hair) arrives in stunning Hawaii on a starship, seemingly summoned by tribal islanders. We soon find our leading lady cavorting on the beach in a pink bikini that leaves very little to the imagination.
So skimpy are some of her outfits in the clip that she takes to holding her top while jumping up and down in the final scenes to prevent any possible wardrobe malfunction.
Was it worth the wait? We’ll let you be the judge.
