Nicki Minaj ‘Creeps,’ Performs ‘Moment 4 Life’ on ‘SNL’
Nicki Minaj has officially made it to the big time, scoring both a performance and stealing scenes from regulars on NBC’s ‘Saturday Night Live’ (Jan 29). The animated rhymer showcased her acting chops before spitting choice lines from several ‘Pink Friday’ hits.
Before the show was underway, Minaj joined comedy trio The Lonely Island in a hilarious ‘SNL Digital Short.’ Playing the role of a geeky school girl named Point Dexter, the rapper took part demonstrating what ‘The Creep’ is all about. Minaj, who stalks boys in a locker room to get a peek of their bodies and even shows up at a wake, raps, “When I was a girl, I’d creep in the boys locker room/ Hide deep inside, it was my little creep stalker room/ As they disrobed, I was oogling and ogling/ Little did they know that for me they were modeling,” over a haunting melody.
Later in the sketch comedy show, she also snagged a scene with host Jesse Eisenberg and cast members Kenan Thompson and Jay Pharoah. Dressed in a towering black wig, Minaj plays the bride of Blackenstein in a parody of Blaxploitation and horror films. The MC even displays a rather rotund posterior.
Getting back to her roots, the Queens native, still showing off her Frankenstein-like wig, commanded the stage and performed favorites ‘Moment 4 Life’ and ‘Right Thru Me’ for the audience.
