(Vibe)   So...yeah, this happened at the Grammys, courtesy of Nicki Minaj. Aren't you glad Rock and Roll is the devil's music?   (vibe.com) divider line 122

That sucked. Bad. Very bad.
 
2012-02-13 08:35:17 AM
You can't pull a Sinead O'Conner unless you have some talent to begin with ...
 
2012-02-13 08:38:05 AM
that was literally the worst performance in the history of music. that song is the worst song ever performed. and that followed that horrific dubstep thing. and thankfully McCartney came on to wipe that crap from my brain.
 
2012-02-13 08:42:44 AM
I see my thoughts on this performance are in accord with Fark consensus...
 
2012-02-13 08:42:47 AM
I saw this and thought to myself "Maybe I just don't get it", that's always a possibility...apparently that wasn't it. It was just bad.
 
2012-02-13 08:43:15 AM
She's collapsing under the weight of her own AW.

Agreed. I can't remember a worse performance-I have no idea what the hell was going on as she sang(?). McCartney and the jam saved the night-look, kiddies, real live music with no autotune crap. And WTF is a DeadMaus or however you spell it? Some dude in a giant mouse head pushing buttons? That's an example of the best of today's music?

Get off my lawn-and I'm not even 50 yet.

This was painful and uncomfortable to sit through. The Beach Boys looked well compared to this garbage. I didn't realize she was going to perform. Trying too hard to be this year's Lady Gaga.

I was grateful when it ended.

Nicki Minaj's finest performance was on SNL and she wasn't even the musical guest. (new window)

She's cute and seems like a nice girl but her music is just awful. I will give her props for out-WTFing Gaga though.
 
2012-02-13 08:59:05 AM
I find some nicki minaj stuff bearable, but that was just horrible. I was actually shocked with how bad it was.

Still attracted to her though.
 
2012-02-13 09:02:05 AM
Well...that sucked.
 
2012-02-13 09:03:17 AM
She is a fine complimentary voice/rap on other people's songs.
This solo bit? Not a fan.

I thought surely you meant the Bride of Blackenstein clip from SNL (I can't link it now). THAT was her best performance ever. I kinda like her too sometimes, but ............ wow that Grammys stuff was pure crap.
 
2012-02-13 09:04:14 AM

Dr.Zom: out-WTFing Gaga though.


Except for the fact that it was a terrible copy of GaGa's amazing performance of Paparazzi at the VMA's a few years back.

What the farking crap is this.

I'm not even going to click any of that linkage.
 
2012-02-13 09:08:20 AM
Yeah it sucked but that is not why people are upset. They're unhappy because she made fun of the pedo-protectors.
 
2012-02-13 09:08:52 AM
I didn't even have to watch the video. I saw the still clip when then page loaded and that was enough for me to declare suckage defcon 1.
 
2012-02-13 09:10:24 AM
And once again the RIAA gets the last laugh against the American consumer. Stop acting surprised about these things.
 
2012-02-13 09:10:29 AM
What if that turns out to be the cure for cancer? All you haters will think twice, I tell you whut...

Farking Canuck: Yeah it sucked but that is not why people are upset. They're unhappy because she made fun of the pedo-protectors.


The only thing I liked was how she linked it to pedopriests by calling them "Roman Zolanski".
 
2012-02-13 09:12:21 AM
Wow. Someone flunked the talent portion, and sucked the fun out of the room. I can see her opening for Marilyn Manson.
 
2012-02-13 09:12:48 AM
I used to watch the Grammys just to make fun of the crappy musical acts. Haven't bothered for several years now. I assume it's like shooting fish in a barrel.
 
2012-02-13 09:17:28 AM
I know it's faux-cool to come into threads like this and say "Who?", but seriously, I had no earthly idea who this woman was, and after looking at her Wiki, that kind of makes me happy.
 
2012-02-13 09:18:14 AM

doremifaq: What if that turns out to be the cure for cancer? All you haters will think twice, I tell you whut...


I certainly do hope that me listening to that whole thing protects me from cancer for the rest of my days. That might make it worth it. Maybe.
 
2012-02-13 09:26:24 AM
Sounded awful and wtf was I watching?
 
2012-02-13 09:27:04 AM
She didn't flip off anyone? Did she not learn anything from MIA?

Phantoms5000: I didn't even have to watch the video. I saw the still clip when then page loaded and that was enough for me to declare suckage defcon 1.


This x1000. As soon as I saw the photo with the article, all I could say was "Oh Hell no."

So whats she doing anyway? Some kind of shiatty impression of Storm from the X-Men movies?
 
2012-02-13 09:34:23 AM

Farking Canuck: Yeah it sucked but that is not why people are upset. They're unhappy because she made fun of the pedo-protectors.


No, I'm unhappy that it made my ears write a suicide note and leap off of my face.
 
2012-02-13 09:34:44 AM
from the video rectangle: An error occured: DailymotionPlayer is not defined at undefined line undefined

As a matter of fact, I do like undefined, so thanks for putting undefined in my undefined.
 
2012-02-13 09:36:27 AM
I like to think that in this tough political climate that Nicki Minaj was just trying to bring us all together. Republicans and Democrats; Social Conservatives and Social Liberals can join hands and all appreciate that whatever the hell she did last night was terrible sounding and definitely sucked ass.

Let us thank Nicki for trying to help heal our split nation by giving everyone a common enemy to battle.

Pants full of macaroni!!: I used to watch the Grammys just to make fun of the crappy musical acts. Haven't bothered for several years now. I assume it's like shooting fish in a barrel.


I watch the Eurovision Song contest for the exact same reason.
 
2012-02-13 09:37:51 AM
Nicki Minaj is the Black Barbie of Lady Gaga.
 
2012-02-13 09:39:57 AM
WTF was that?
 
2012-02-13 09:40:15 AM
As much crap as my parents gave me about the music I listened to when I was growing up in the 80's, this shiat is 100,000x worse.
/old, I haz it.

I'd forgotten about that. I would love to disappoint that woman. "That booty is a masterpiece of modern science."

Bride of Blackenstein (new window)

s2s2s2: The only thing I liked was how she linked it to pedopriests by calling them "Roman Zolanski".


Actually, Roman Zolanski is one of her weird alter-egos. I don't think it had a link to pedo-priests originally.
 
2012-02-13 09:42:04 AM
The only thing shocking about it was how terribly bad it all was. Too bad she'll still sell millions of albums. I mean, hey, girls still smile and cream themselves while introducing Chris Brown, and you know how much he respects women.
 
2012-02-13 09:45:25 AM

Farking Canuck: Yeah it sucked but that is not why people are upset. They're unhappy because she made fun of the pedo-protectors.


I didn't even get that she was doing that-that's how awful it was. I had to read today what the whole thing was about.
 
2012-02-13 09:52:31 AM
"Rock and roll," subs?

2012-02-13 09:53:59 AM
She was going for the coveted 'most blasphemous performance by a mediocre and possibly schizophrenic hip-hop soloist with bad tattoos' award. And boy did she blow it out of the park.

jayhawk88: I know it's faux-cool to come into threads like this and say "Who?", but seriously, I had no earthly idea who this woman was, and after looking at her Wiki, that kind of makes me happy.


I've heard her name, but really, I don't know who she is either. So I guess she's a "singer."

Until this time next year, of course.

the Head Barbie shocked the world with her track "Roman Holiday."

Are they saying it was as bad as the holocaust?
 
2012-02-13 10:02:56 AM
This is why we can't have nice things.
 
2012-02-13 10:04:45 AM
The track was bad, but the performance/staging wasn't that shocking. Or are we not even allowed to use religious imagery anymore?
 
2012-02-13 10:06:15 AM
i like how lady gaga didn't even exist and she sat there the whole night in a sutpid beekeepr face veil and a holding a damn sceptre.

and she meant nothing this year.

screw these AW artists. someone in the official thread said "adele performance shows that if you got the voice and the music, you don't need to dye your hair blue or wear stupid crap or have fire and ice sculptures to perform"

To be fair to Lady Gaga, I'm of the opinion that she does have the talent to not need all that shiat but just does it anyway.

I don't know enough about Nicki Minaj to say. I know that she was on that Kanye song but other than that I couldn't identify any of her stuff. And I don't really care enough to dig any deeper.
 
2012-02-13 10:14:33 AM
Remember the 'accidental' nipple flash on GMA? No, neither does anyone else....so she does this. If it's done by her it's a publicity stunt. Keep that in mind and she'll fade away quicker.

FreakinB: To be fair to Lady Gaga, I'm of the opinion that she does have the talent to not need all that shiat but just does it anyway.


because being desperate for attention is great.

but don't worry.. when she's yesterday's news and adds about 5-8 years to her age.. we'll see the emergence of "Stephanie".

She'll have no gimmicks and just come out and sing and it'll be "reinventing".

book it. done.
