    I mean what am I suppose to say…I am not shocked. It is clear that she is seeking attention. I would hate to be sitting behind her at the awards.

    It does have a little bit of an “What the hell can I come up with that Lady Gaga hasn’t already done? Oh, I know!” – vibe to it.

    Why couldn’t she have shown some class tonight? Was she trying to upstage Whitney’s tribute?

    She must have just seen Gaga’s “Judas” video.

    david ouellette Says:

    Some people will do anything to stand out and get attention…..Little Red Riding Hood and The Pope???!!! This looks like something that a bunch of immature kids high on weed would do…………I wonder if being in show-business makes a person go insane after while? This might be a good example.

  18. 18
    Lalalove Says:

    Why? Why so desperate for attention? She wants the blogs to be about her and not Whitney’s death. Clearly she’s biggest for some serious attention. What else must I think?

    I think the outfit’s stupid, but she obviously couldn’t have foreseen Whitney Houston’s death. She’s begging for attention, but she isn’t trying to “upstage Whitney’s tribute”.

    UGH. SO. LAME.

    I should be highly offended by this but it is just sooo pathetic. Here’s an idea if you want to be taken seriously as a musician: focus on your MUSIC not “controversy.” What an effing loser.

    @Sayer: actually she’s 29 since shw was born in 1982 not 1984.

    Akari Says:

    I have no comment………………..Yes, I do!!!! She is trying hard to be original and be so-called “artist”. That’s just sad :(. Here come the news, tmrw!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ok, she is stupid.

    jasmine Says:

    Um, she may be trying to be like “GaGa” but the way I see it, Lady GaGa isn’t the first to do controversial things and do crazy sh** to get attention. she may be the spokeperson for that in this generation, but she’s definitely not the first. and certainly won’t be the last. Both GaGa and Nicki are clearly starving for attention. i mean, cmon. lady gaga and her meat dress? so stop the comparison. they’re both deserately searching for the next head turning outfit or strange “thing” to do.

    Karine Says:

    Oh really ?!?!!! We already got one Lady Gaga and it’s enough.

  35. 35
    Billie Says:

    She tries to hard to be….controversial and relevant.

    Her fashion and persona just end up feeling contrived.

    That leaves her music. She’s a decent singer but a less than average rapper. I don’t get her appeal.

    As for her latest fashion stunt, if I were the media or the head of some right wing organization, I would not wait my time on her foolery.

    If she’s as good as she raps that she is, then why not let the music speak for you!?!

    this is truly inappropriate, i don’t understand why they allow idiots like this clown to be allowed to dress like this for such a important event its not only gives the event an unprofessional image but it also stains Americans image

    Sunshine Says:

    Another idiot who has to mask her lack of talent with shock value. It’s amazing why this “artist” is so popular. Same goes for Gaga. All pageantry, no substance.

    @jasmine: exactly gaga can’t complain cause she lost the right to ***** about people copying her when 99% of the sh she does is copied. she built a her career on copying so Nicki is just showing she can copy to if thats the way its gonna be. I think its funny.

    shocked Says:

    This is a disgrace!!!! What is wrong with her??? This is totally disrespectful to every Catholic. I’m an atheist but there are some lines you don’t cross in respect to other’s faith. This is a truly pathetic stunt and so is she. Lame!!!!!

    Guy Says:

    @jasmine: lady gaga is the girl who does this Red carpet stuff for this generation, For Nicki to start this at this point in time and in her career , WILL be compaired to Gaga, do to the fact Gaga brought it all back! Period. Nicki looks like a fool, but people expect it from Gaga, see the point?

    love purple Says:

    i smell a lot of haters and they stink lol
    why compare to gaga? they do totally diff. music
    yall diss nickie for this but don’t diss gaga for dressing like a dude, being inside egg/coffin an entrance, off the wall crazy costumes….that sounds like attention also..
    i think people shouldn’t compare them two…when they are both just wierd…..and nicki has been like this since the beginning so wuts the fuss now, but hey it doesn’t matter…cuz they both got great hits.
    nicki could have worn a normal dress….and she would still be on top and still would have gotten the attention :)

    Disappointed in Nicki Says:

    What a profound DISAPPOINTMENT. Nicki has clearly lost her mind. She has disrespected herself and lost a LOT of fans tonight by her poor lack of judgement regarding her weak and disasterous performance. I will forever associate her with extreme negativity.

    Disgusting, shameful and totally inappropriate. She obviously needs some prayer!

    Okay we get it Nicki & the President both hate Catholics….. haters are everywhere even in a land that is suppose to have freedom OF religion (not freedom FROM religion) To many Nicki ruined the grammys and took the focus off Whitney’s death…!/search?q=%23Disappointed

    HIpocrit defines Minaj. For somebody who uses her race (such as many other artists in this business) as an excuse to appear like that, she proved that not only she is talentless, but also a racist. Enough said.

    carlee Says:

    So why is it that no artist ever gets involved with Muslims? Because Muslims don’t put up with anyone disrespecting their religion!!! But go ahead and make fun of Catholic’s and Christian’s they wont say or do much. Celebrities should just leave ALL religions alone and respect each and one of them!!! Nicki really F%$# up, she didn’t realize that in the audience there could have been many Catholic’s feeling offended about her performance.

    I am not exactly the pope’s number 1 one, but to come to an award show with a guy dressed like the pope on your arm is just pathetic. I, for one, am sick to death with all these overrated talentless idiots using religion to cause outrage and to try to provoke people. It’s idiotic.

    renaljim Says:

    I now question the production credentials of Ken Ehrlich for allowing Nikki Minaj to display this deplorable filthy and disrespectful act during a Grammy’s that was also celebrating the loss of the many great industry performers and VIP’S that we lost this past year…. including Whitney Houston’s tragic loss just a day before! I say BOYCOTT Nikki Minaj’s music and send a strong message!

    jesuspiece78 Says:

    WOW, I always found her music/personality to be annoying, but did she mistake this award ceremony for some kind of Halloween party?
    This is probably the most tacky, desperate, cry for attention I have ever seen.

    The dress is hoorible, and this stunt was just puuure blasphemy.

    There you go Nicki… sure got them talking now..
    Show some class..GEEEEZ..

  86. 86
    Kittles Marie Says:

    Hey Idiots! Just remember that Lady Gaga copies Madonna, so as far as I’m concerned Madonna has already been there, done that and not to mention about 25 years ago. Minaj and Gaga are both seeking attention for the lack of their own ideas. They can both give it a rest…they’ll be nothing in about 2 years any way. There is only one Madonna…sorry kids.

    tifftiff Says:

    wow man wtf her 10 mins fame is up…just leave the weird dressing to lady gaga she can pull that off ……i was kinda a fan of her music when she came out but now after hearing her music now especially that “stupid h**” song its just garbage now

    Thanks for the article. I have always noticed that many people are desperate to lose weight as they wish to appear slim along with attractive. However, they do not constantly realize that there are more benefits for losing weight also. Doctors insist that over weight people suffer from a variety of illnesses that can be perfectely attributed to the excess weight. The good news is that people who’re overweight and also suffering from different diseases can reduce the severity of their particular illnesses by losing weight. You are able to see a constant but noted improvement with health as soon as even a moderate amount of losing weight is realized.
