A still from Nicki Minaj's 'Pills N Potions' video.

I didn't go to sleep last night until well after 4 a.m., and it's not just because I had to finish the seaosn-two finale of Orange Is The New Black (although that certainly was part of it). Nicki Minaj promised a Monday night release for her "Pills N Potions" video, and I was NOT about to miss that extremely important moment. And while I might have ghastly dark circles under my eyes now, I can confidently say that it was totally worth it.
After Nicki released a teaser of the video late last week, we just KNEW the full video would be amazing. (I mean, the 45-second clip already featured seven different looks.) The final product contains a perfect mix of stripped down and crazy—which also describes Nicki's current personal style, TBH. Who else could pull off subtle Alice in Wonderland imagery AND pasties over the course of a few minutes? Nobody, that's who.
