In a little under two years, Nicki Minaj has become one of the biggest stars ever. She has grown accustomed to stealing the show, whether it be on a song or a live performance. Two nights ago was no different for Nicki Minaj, as she became the hottest topic of the 54th Annual Grammy Awards. Her performance was considered controversial by many, as she performed an exorcism on her alter-ego, Roman.
Nicki Minaj is used to doing strange performances and then receiving rave reviews, but this was not the case. Recently, she discussed this, telling Ryan Seacrest, the Grammys chose “Roman Holiday” for her to perform. Nicki Minaj said when the producers heard “Roman Holiday,” they did not give her a choice.
Discussing the theme of the performance, Nicki Minaj said Roman is catching heat because he is not “normal.” While an exorcism is performed on Roman, he is not exorcized. Even after the Holy water is thrown on him, he still is unchanged. The moral of the story is Roman is great the way he is, regardless of what the people think of him.
