Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2011: Kanye, Jay-Z, Nicki Rock
It takes some mighty captivating musicians to overshadow leggy models wearing next to nothing, but Kanye West, Jay-Z and Nicki Minaj fared as well as anyone might at this year's Victoria's Secret fashion show.
Taped several weeks ago and aired last night (Nov. 29) on CBS, the annual parade of hotties was made all the better by the three hip-hop heavies. Before joining Jay for the 'Watch the Throne' cut 'N----s in Paris,' 'Ye offered up 'Stronger,' a song he would have performed at the 2007 event had it not been for the unexpected death of his mother.
"I lost my superhero," Yeezy said of the late Donda West. "Now she's my super angel."
His words were fitting, as the scantily clad ladies that made their way down the runway rocked lingerie inspired by both comic books and Victoria's usual angel-wing motif.
While no models dared to stroll by during the 'Ye-Jay team-up, cameras caught many dancing backstage and mouthing along with the lyrics. Jay's wife, Beyonce, was also in the house, nodding her head and perhaps keeping an eye on her man.
As Nicki sang and rapped through her 'Pink Friday' favorite 'Super Bass,' Vicky's gals rocked neon get-ups similar to hers. No one dared match her pink curly-cue hairdo, however, proving that angels are no match for a Harajuku Barbie.
