Perhaps when Nicki Minaj showed up to the 2012 Grammy Awards with a Pope-lookalike on her arm, it should have been a clue. Her performance of her new single “Roman Holiday” is making major waves, even reaching the Catholic League, who have accused her of being possessed by a demon. Additionally, Catholic League president Bill Donohue is heavily criticizing the Recording Academy for letting such a provocative performance happen in the first place. Maybe Nicki was a little sore about being horribly upstaged last Sunday at the Super Bowl when her sidekick MIA decided to flip off the American public for no good reason that anyone can come up with. In any case, she seems to have found a way to get back in the game of controversy, attacking the very heart of the Catholic religion.
Nicki’s performance on music’s most sacred platform started with a mock confessional, complete with stain glass windows and choir boys and monks dancing. This quickly transformed into an
exorcism. Bad enough? Just wait.
To finish things off, Nicki had a barely dressed female dancer stretch backwards while an altar boy bowed down in between her legs to pray. Then, a bishop walked on stage as “Come All Ye Faithful” was sung in the background. Bad enough? Just wait.
The performance ended with Nicki levitating. No, really.
Donohue summed up his feelings quite nicely:
“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.”
So, as always, we here at Common Sense Conspiracy value your opinion. What do you think?
