Despite the fact that Nicki Minaj has been ALL over the place recently, what with her American Idol gig, her Pink Friday perfumes (and the accompanying bottle clothing collection) and her ELLE cover, we've got to admit, we miss her live shows. The pop star says she's (understandably) too busy with her various fashion projects to plan a tour right now, though, and you know what? That's OK, because her new "High School" video is an excellent alternative.
Yep, after days of giving sneak peeks and BTS snaps on Twitter, the time has finally come! Barbz dropped her video upon the world earlier this morning in her MTV First, and we've had the neon-drenched clip on loop ever since. Director Benny Boom captured the lovey dovey vibes between Nicki and Lil Wayne (who's also featured on the track), following the duo as their steamy romance heats up in and around a gorgeous mansion. Not to mention, there's also some crime and jewelry thievery thrown in for good measure (but you'll have to watch to find out what happens!). The style is predictably eye-popping, with Nicki swapping her Moschino, Balmain and McQueen "realness" for highlighter-hued swimwear and body con dresses. But enough with the generalities...let's get down to business. Get all the "High School" nitty gritty outfit deets below.
