Video: Nicki Minaj Impersonates Beyoncé on ‘SNL’

posted by Oscar December 7, 2014

Last night saw rapper Nicki Minaj as the musical guest on the James Franco-hosted SNL. The rapper would perform her songs “Bed of Lies” with Skylar Grey and “Only/All Things Go,” but what really made her stand out was her appearances on sketches. Minaj did a good Kim Kardashian for the “Weekend Update” segment, but it was her part impersonating Beyoncé for the sketch “Jingle Ballerz Special” that was the highlight of the night.

For the bit, Minaj’s “Queen Bey” was part of the hip-hop version of the Nativity Story with Eminem (Taran Killam), Riff Raff (James Franco) and Rick Ross (Keenan Thompson) among other stars played by the SNL cast members.

See the performances plus the Kim K impression below and check out the “Jingle Ballerz Special” above. Continue Reading

American Music Awards -2014

Tonight saw the broadcast of the 2014 American Music Awards (AMAs), celebrating some of the biggest names in Pop. While the act of handing out the awards themselves were seen about once a segment, the broadcast focused more on the performances than anything else.

Among some of the bigger sets included Lorde’s American TV debut performance of “Yellow Flicker Beat,” Ariana Grande’s collaboration with The Weeknd, and Sam Smith’s teaming with A$AP Rocky. See those performances below. Continue Reading

posted by Oscar August 25, 2014

The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards (VMA’s) just wrapped up with performances from Taylor Swift, Sam Smith, and Iggy Azalea with Rita Ora. The show opened up with Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj performing their latest singles before culminating with both singers joining Jessie J for their collaboration, “Bang Bang.”

The biggest moment of the night was without a doubt the finale, which basically played out like a mini Beyonce concert with performances of cuts from her self-titled album. See that above and find the rest of the performances over at MTV.

Video: Nicki Minaj – “Anaconda”

posted by Oscar August 20, 2014

So this is a thing that exists now and you can’t really blame me for posting this. Debuting late at night a la the old BET Uncut days, this video proved to be worthy of any “after dark” comments that resulted immediately after its release. The video itself is provocative right from the start and it shows Nicki surrounded by other bootyful women dancing, bananas sitting on top of a spinning record for some reason, and plenty of moments that will make it difficult for you to forget what went on in this video for the foreseeable future.

Drizzy’s reaction at the end pretty much sums up everyone’s thoughts to the “Anaconda” video. See for yourself above.
