Nicki Minaj ‘Starships’ Video Set: Rapper Pops Out in Pink Bikini
Nicki Minaj is gearing up for her sophomore release, ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded,’ and she’ll deliver a new video for her current single, ‘Starships,’ just in time for the LP’s debut on April 3. The curvaceous rapper donned a pink bikini on the set of the video, which was recently shot in Hawaii.
The 29-year-old Queens-bred MC hit the beaches of Oahu, rolling around in the sand while cooing on the RedOne-produced track. She sports a signature wig — this time in neon green — and showcases her voluptuous frame as the waves hit her body and the sun drenched her skin.
For the video, it seems the hip-hop megastar called on Hawaiian natives to take on roles. “P—ies is throbbin. Like… #DeadDaF—Ass. I’m movin to Hawaii. http://lockerz.com/s/192483337,” the ‘Pink Friday’ creator wrote on Twitter, posting a photo of four muscular men dressed in pink threads.
Anthony Mandler directs the ‘Starships’ video. He is known for his work with Rihanna — ‘Take a Bow, ‘Russian Roullette,’ ‘Man Down’ — Drake — ‘Over,’ ‘Find Your Love’ — Beyonce — ‘Get Me Bodied’ and Jay-Z — ‘D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune),’ among others.
