13Is Nicki Minaj Possessed?

And no, I’m not talking about her performance at the Grammys, I’m talking about Nicki Minaj, the person. Is Nicki Minaj possessed? Because some people are legitimately wondering if she is or not. And by “some people,” I mean the Catholic League:

Nicki Minaj, fresh off looking like a fool with Madonna at the Super Bowl, showed up last night on the red carpet at the Grammys with a guy dressed like the pope. This was just a prelude of what was to come.

Minaj’s performance began on stage with a mock confessional skit. This was followed by a taped video depicting a mock exorcism. With stained glass in the background, she appeared on stage again with choir boys and monks dancing.

Perhaps the most vulgar part was the sexual statement that showed a scantily clad female dancer stretching backwards while an altar boy knelt between her legs in prayer. Finally, “Come All Ye Faithful” was sung while a man posing as a bishop walked on stage; Minaj was shown levitating.

None of this was by accident, and all of it was approved by The Recording Academy, which puts on the Grammys. Whether Minaj is possessed is surely an open question, but what is not in doubt is the irresponsibility of The Recording Academy. Never would they allow an artist to insult Judaism or Islam.

It’s bad enough that Catholics have to fight for their rights vis-à-vis a hostile administration in Washington without also having to fend off attacks in the entertainment industry. The net effect, however, will only embolden Catholics, as well as their friends in other faith communities.

Personally, I wasn’t offended by Nicki’s performance, but I’m not easily offended, and these aren’t my beliefs being displayed in some wacky show. I guess I could see where someone could take offense, but then again … it’s Nicki Minaj. Why let yourself get worked up over a rapper with ass implants?

As long as we’re talking about people being offended, it looks like even Nicki’s manager and some of her friends thought she went too far with the red nun getup she wore to the Grammys. Check out this blind item from Blind Gossip:

There was a big fashion controversy in the days leading up to the Grammys. This particular singer was not about to let anyone outshine them on the red carpet. “F*ck the swan and f*ck the meat dress!” they said. “I want something really outrageous!” They changed designers and outfits several times in the days leading up to the awards show, with each iteration getting more and more controversial. When the decision was finally made, a shouting match ensued between the singer and their manager. “There’s a difference between creative and offensive, and you’ve crossed the line!” Even the star’s close friends argued passionately about the outfit. Some were calling it genius, some were calling it tacky. It will be interesting to see if there will be a backlash tomorrow… and if that backlash will hurt record sales.

Were you offended by Nicki Minaj’s heathen ways?

    I’m a serious Christian, but I was definitely not offended by Nicki Minaj. Artistic freedom is an important thing, and really what she did wasn’t all that bad in my opinion. She’s just a rapper. I was definitely more offended by all of the Christians who completely overreacted, it’s so pointless and immature.

  2. No, not possessed, not even controversial, just unoriginal and tacky. Dressing up in costumes is so 2011, plus her music sucks.

  3. Agree with Bobby says:

    Right on, Bobby. Bo-ring, and so obviously an attempt to bait the “establishment.” If she really wanted to be bold she’d have dressed up as Mohammed and offended the Muslim world. THAT would take guts. The whole “let’s-offend-Christians-for-attention” gig was overdone even back when Madonna did it. Yawn.

    well from wat i have seen guys . it purely ridicules the beliefs of others. and the fact of the matter is that niki and the rest of their illuminati clan are evil. look at it from this way. y would u use sentiments of the christian circle of belief to bring about the total opposite of what is practiced unless u are against it.and not forgetting lady gaga’s judah-now really guys,he was the person to betray and sell jesus(funny enough she loves him and wants to bring jesus down) study has proven that the practice of illuminati is against christ. visit the vigilant citizen and read facts about the demonic practices that carried out.
