One Thousand Nicki Minajs Appear On Steps Of Finnish Church
If Nicki Minaj is your chosen deity, then there's a certain church that's ready to receive you as a disciple.
The Pinkprint rapper, who's currently on tour, was the subject of some heavy-handed promotion this morning (June 10) when a thousand cardboard cutouts constructed in Nicki's "Anaconda"-likeness popped up on the stairs of the Helsinki Cathedral in Finland. And you thought your local parish was overcrowded...
According to local news source Helsingin Uutiset, certain figures—100, to be exact—were outfitted with two-day passes to Summer Up, an upcoming Finnish festival that will mark Minaj's first performance in the country. The production will hit Lahti, Finland on July 3 and 4 and, presumably, feature a flesh-and-blood Nicki.
Understandably, hopeful concert-goers were eager to find the new-age golden tickets to 2015's Chocolate Factory:
Summer Up, which is billed as the "major event for the Finnish hip hop scene" on the festival's website, will also feature performances by Finnish stars Elastinen and Mikael Gabriel and promises some memorable collaborations among its scheduled acts.
Let's hope the...honor?...can help lift Nicki's spirits—this morning, her reported ex-boyfriend, Safaree Samuels, slammed the rapper in an alleged diss track which included the line "Yeah I know I’m not perfect, you was paying all the bills / You remember what you told me that you wasn’t on them pills?" Guess we know someone who could use an appointment in the confession booth!
Finally a disciple of the church of Minaj? Tell us what you think of the blasphemous stunt!
