Nicki Minaj premieres video for 'Starships'
Rapper beamed down from spaceship in sexy new video
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:
The people of Hawaii were so enchanting. And that mountain top was freezing. The wind was blowing so hard (pauz) my ears hurt @ the end.— Nicki Minaj (@NICKIMINAJ) April 27, 2012
