Nicki Minaj Goes Lace and Leather Barbie in Magenta-Hued ’Chun-Li’ Video
Harajuku or Lace and Leather Barbie? The two personalities clash in the new music video for Nicki Minaj's latest riposte, "Chun-Li."
After serving her Barbz with a double dose of NM4 this week with two fresh hip-pop bangers — "Barbie Tingz" and "Chun-Li" — Minaj proves once again how, with just a smartphone in hand, she can easily finesse her way back to trending status by taking on the latest selfie music video trend.
In the footage (which is currently pushing 3 million views on YouTube), the "MotorSport" emcee swaggers alone and unescorted on a sumptuous divan in a room irradiated by a neon pink "Nicki Minaj" sign while striking snap-worthy poses for her digital audience.
Most of the shots feature the 35-year-old rapper in nearly nothing but a black lacy getup, Minaj confidently boasts her assets as she mouthes the lyrics to the comeback hit. In different takes filmed in normal lighting, the musician models a glossy black two-piece with matching shades and a flesh-toned bodysuit with a sheer rainbow-colored jacket in another.
