Young Money's Grande Dame, Nicki Minaj presents her own romantic fairy tale in the music video "Moment 4 Life" featuring her labelmate Drizzy Drake. The visual follows both artists slowly approaching each other after having met at a posh gala event. In true barbie-fashion, the plot culminates in a flamboyant wedding scene. Ms. Minaj revealed in her interview with MTV, that the she "was inspired by the regal, romantic attire of Shakespeare's era".
"I wanted to take a step away from, like, high fashion or, like, [a] hip-hop, sporty type of look and into just, like, real flowy and just to play dress-up. I was envisioning a Shakespeare time, and I figured, 'What would they wear?' I felt like the first outfit kinda looked like, almost like you're in Egypt somewhere back in the day, like a long time ago," she added of the bejeweled draped blue dress."
Accordingly, be prepared to witness Nicki's British alter ego Martha celebrating her on-screen debut. Her platinum-tested debut album Pink Friday is out now.
