Last night MTV had another one of their OMG YOU HAVE TO WATCH THIS MUSIC VIDEO moments. Most of the time when they do this, it leads to a lot of WTF reactions… good and bad.
Nicki Minaj and Drake were up last night with their video for “Moment 4 Life.” Check it-
Everyone’s entitled to their opinion, right? K, well here comes mine.
The beginning could be a bit much, but I did like it. The dresses/costumes are extravagant but gorgeous. The storyline was set, and I expected it to be cute. As the song progressed, the storyline seemed to disappear. It was more of them singing into the camera than anything else.
I gotta admit- I stopped watching music videos for a while. Then I started having CMT and GAC on in the morning when I got ready, and I liked them again. That being said, country music videos have a lot of storytelling in them… and maybe pop/rap artists like Nicki should take notes.
Her video could have been pretty epic, but it lost the special touch. Beyond the awesome outfits, it was pretty terrible.
Also- I wish she’d pick one of her “characters” and stick with it.. but I guess that’s her personality- having multiple. I like Nicki, I think… I’m just a little on the fence.
