Nicki Minaj has premiered the new video for 'Starships', the latest single for her album 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded'.

In the video, Minaj is seen materialising out of the sea from a laser beamed down by a UFO. You can watch the video by scrolling down the page and clicking.

Wearing a skimpy pink bikini and sporting cool green hair, Minaj writhes around in the sand while a team of topless male dancers get covered in multi-coloured paint.

The video was shot in Hawaii, and while it may look like a tropical paradise, it appears Minaj's acting skills were pushed to their limits, as the video's mountain top scene was a difficult environment to shoot.

Nicki Minaj tweeted:




Nicki Minaj recently returned to Twitter a mere eight days after deleting her account. The rapper reactivated her page – Twitter.com/NickiMinaj – on the social networking site earlier this week and started posting again, much to the delight of her 11 million followers.

The rapper released her second album 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded' earlier this month. Minaj will tour the UK in June, playing two shows at London's HMV Hammersmith Apollo on June 24 and 25, before moving onto Birmingham's NIA Academy on June 26. Minaj wraps up the tour on June 28 with a show at Manchester's O2 Apollo.

Nicki Minaj will also play a number of this year's summer festivals, with slots booked at T In The Park, V Festival and Wireless Festival. To check the availability of Nicki Minaj tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
