We've been waiting for what seems like years for Nicki Minaj's new video to her soon-to-be 2012 Summer anthem, "Starships." Based on what we knew from her previous summer hit, "Super Bass," we knew we were in for a great, fun video. And while her videos for "Stupid Ho" and "Beez in the Trap" seemed like filler videos, we were still biting our hot pink painted nails in anticipation for this one.
And we were only mildly disappointed.
Yes, the song itself has fun rhymes that slide off your tongue easily, but are just a tad too fast for your average gay white boy to be able to pull off flawlessly. And the background music is a fun, poppy number that we can just running around the beach drunkenly to. Or seducing our summer fling as it plays softly on our iPhones... Whichever comes first.
And the video has all of the elements that helped "Super Bass" win us over:
Blacklight dancing, cotton candy colored water, hot shirtless black men, Nicki in bright bikinis and brighter wigs.
But instead of being another fun summer video to put under Nicki's belt, it seems like a deleted scene from the "Super Bass" video... which is fine, but it's certainly nothing we needed to be on the edge of our seats for three months for.
Justin Bieber, if you're reading this, your "Boyfriend" video better be a hell of a lot better than this. You've been warned...
