MTV continues to push out these very clever commercials for their upcoming Video Music Awards, airing next Sunday, September 12. First it was Drake, then it was Ke$ha, now it’s everyone’s favorite girl, Nicki Minaj.
Again with the old-school, black and white stylings MTV used for Drake, Nicki too is retro-fitted to look like a modern-day Marilyn Monroe, except with talent. In the background, Nicki’s ‘Your Love’. ‘Ever since she was little,’ says the commercial’s voiceover. ‘She dreamed of dominating the world of rap.’ Well, so far for Nicki, her dreams are slowly becoming true. The rapper also just booked a pre-Video Music Award performance of her ‘Your Love’ record. It will be her first ever televised solo performance.
