EYE SAW THAT: WHAT THE HELL?? (LITERALLY) NIKKI MINAJ BAFFLES, DELIGHTS AND OFFENDS AT THE GRAMMYS

Nikki Minaj’s performance “The Exorcism of Roman'” at the Grammys left everyone’s jaw dropping.  Now the jaw drop may have been in rage, glory or simple confusion, but more than likely that was the goal of the controversial display.

Minaj was performing her song “Roman Holiday” and it was comeplete with a priest, monks for dancers, and even a supporting short video for the odd five minutes or so Nikki was onstage, the dancing choreographed by Laurieann Gibson.

Many Catholics-and quite a few non-Catholics- found the performance more than a little offensive, and many were simply disturbed by the whole thing, while others felt Nikki was simply expressing herself in an artistic fashion.  Personally, it was the equivalent of looking at a car accident…I wanted to look away but I just couldn’t.

Whatever motivated Minaj, one of the factors was surely shock value, and she accomplished just that.
