Nicki Minaj + Lil Wayne Explore Romance in ‘High School’ Video
Subscribe to PopCrush on
Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne, two key members of the YMCMB crew, play on-screen love interests in her video for ‘High School.’ They really get it on in the clip… or at least they are really good at acting like they are getting it on.
Her Minajesty shows off plenty of junk in the trunk and those bodacious tatas. She and Weezy also turn up the heat, romance-wise, showing a side of their relationship we’ve never seen. Yes, it’s uncomfortable to watch, since they’ve always seemed like brother and sister. Turns out we’re not the only ones who feel that way.
The clip is somewhat ‘Scarface’ in its cinematic scope, thanks to the jewel heist.
But those bedroom scenes? Those are pretty steamy. Weezy and Nicki touch each other, almost kiss and there is plenty of innuendo. It’s very voyeuristic.
Minaj admitted to MTV that she had trouble pretending to take the relationship to the next level. “Wayne said we had to kiss for the video,” she admitted. “He was like, one thing that’s going to sell it is if we really kiss. I’m like, ‘Ehh.'”
We had trouble watching it but Nicki had trouble doing it.
“Not only is he my boss, but he’s also like my brother,” the rap vixen continued. “It’s very weird because I’m just used to Wayne making fun of me, and all of Young Money boys making fun of me, so every time they yelled ‘Cut!’ I was just being picked on. It was completely them being bullies to me. But it’s still like Wayne is still so sexy and so I texted Wayne and I was like, ‘You’re going to have all the chicks back on you, know what I’m saying?’ Because when this video comes out, he looks like art, he looks like a piece of art all tatted up, all sexy, black and beautiful.”
Besides being all sexy, black and beautiful, he was also respectful, refusing to “touch” Minaj on the set.
If they decided to hang up their YMCMB mics, there’s always acting…
