Grammys: Nicki Minaj & Her Papal Escort
Before her spectacularly strange performance of "Roman Holiday" at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards, Nicki Minaj arrived on the red carpet dressed in a Vatican-inspired robe and walking arm-in-arm with a Pope lookalike. The Roman Catholic imagery was designed to coincide with her performance later in the night, which dealt with the attempted exorcism of her alter-ego, Roman Zolanski.
"It's funny because it was the most comfortable I've been in my entire life," Minaj told Ryan Seacrest Monday morning (via MTV News). "The Grammys chose 'Roman Holiday.' They heard 'Roman Holiday' and I could not play them another record after that. I have to stay true to what I'm doing ... my fanbase, they understand every single thing. Roman was created two years ago. I've been writing the story for a long time and yesterday was his coming-out party. It just was very literal and streamlined if you know who Roman is and if you don't know the Roman character, you have to digest it."
