People don't want her to be serious - the video just doesn't do the song much justice. IMO, the video should have resembled the SNL performance

Yeah I get it - swish for basketball. Shady lyrics like this and we get a corny underdog theme.

Not to mention the song is almost incidental since it stops and starts and stops again throughout.

Well it was better the second time around
Unlike other things that wither, she preserves. She’s a constant in a world of relentless flux. She’s a beacon of immortality. Bitch, she’s Madonna.

It got me thinking she could actually do a pretty good Super Bowl.

Appearing in a music video and performing at the Suprrbowl are quite far apart

Super Bowl was actually the first thing that popped to my mind when her scene first started. :lol: But nope, she's not ready yet, obviously. She's still lacking in stage presence.

Right? I got you-know-who (seeing as I'm not allowed to mention her name) and Azealia Banks vibes.

I don't agree, Katy did it and god knows she doesn't have more stage presence than Nicki, she just got overshadowed in her own video.

:lol: It does remind me of her entrance, wouldn't be surprised if it was actually inspired by that performance. Don't know/care about Azealia though.

Well, if you put it that way, it kinda makes sense. She would need lots of stage props & dancers though, just like how Katy did. Her BBMAs performance a few months ago was actually quite solid. Nicki is rather stiff on stage, so she really needs a great choreographer to direct her. Maybe a few more years for me.

Nicki looks spectacular, especially in that metal leotard.
That's all I have to say. Damn Katy, I had great hopes.

I like the video overall but as its such a mess it sticks out badly in her videography. Nicki saves it, lot of random crap going on and they need to edit out at least 2:30 mins

It's not that funny if you used to watch vine videos a couple of years ago and gifs.

On the other hand, the video was only released 9 hours ago - so it didn't take long.

This is like a music video for a Disney show minus the Necki part. The video just doesn't go well with the song. It's just awful and not funny. Did she not learn for the awful "Birthday" video, that having a long ass music video which pretentious humour does not guarantee a viral hit?
