    Popcorn garbage

  2. ROMANHOLIDAY May 16, 2012

    Cheap! What was the purpose for Chris to be there i dont get it

    • Virtuoso Intellect May 17, 2012

      I’m surprised u were thumbed down cus i was thinking the same thing. Chris should’vd been incorporated into the plot as per the lyrics but he was jus there delivering his lines. That’s not a shade to Chris so i really dont get why people thumbed u doen for it … Oh well

  3. Obi Texas May 16, 2012

    Loved the video!!!!!
    Great look. Get to see Nicki not so costume-ish. Great chemistry between her and Chris Brown in the video.

    Nas being in the video is a great look too! Wish you all the best Nicki!

  4. KAT DELUNA FAN May 16, 2012

    I loved it,she looked beautiful but the storyline was understandable..I didnt get it one bit 😯

    Yeah,she looked good 😳

  5. SMH Music May 16, 2012

    Every time I see this girl, she looks more and more like Jen from the Dark Crystal. This is not a classic! It’ll be here one month and forgotten the next.

  6. KAT DELUNA FAN May 16, 2012

    The kiss OMG 😳 😳

  7. Edwardponton May 16, 2012

    Solid effort. It kept my attention the whole time. Nicki looked beautiful AF in the scene with the hoodie on.

  8. Jade May 16, 2012

    I love it!!!!!! That kiss was HOT!!!!! I love You Nickii :))))))) I salute Nas and Chris

  9. YOO! May 16, 2012


  10. Nats May 16, 2012

    Slayedddddd!!! Nicki kills it everytime, so proud of her.

  11. TRIBLESEED May 16, 2012

    My heart melted. I probably sound like the most ratchet stan but this video was way too adorable! The chemistry is written all over the faces of Nicki & Nas.

  12. Shawn May 16, 2012

    YESSS for that kiss….

  13. James227 May 16, 2012


  14. Benron May 16, 2012

    Uh, mediocre, she acted cute for like 5 minutes while flipping around a cheap wig, what was so great? Was Breezy stalkig her, how did she know him, why did she get a car for a present, and Most importantly… What the f*** was the point, F, but D for effort cuz it was better than her embarrasing whining in starships!

  15. Oh Baby(B****** Will Deal) May 16, 2012

    Cute video! but damnnnn,has Nicki always been that light? shoot,she’s lighter than Chris brown now??! damn son!

  16. VA STAND UP!! May 16, 2012

    It was cute. Nicki gets on my damn nerves but her videos usually do deliver… well actually this is the FIRST one that has delivered this era but whatever. She looked cute in the video, fake ass, lace front & all. Nas looked TOO fine! They’re chemistry was nice. They would actually make a cute couple!

    I’m mad Nas was the lead & Chris looked like a damn extra! Lol! I don’t think her & Chris would have been believable as a couple anyways. Her moments with Chris were cute though. They look like brother and sister in the video.

    Why she had to make that face at the end though? She’s always so damn extra.

  17. Oh Baby(B****** Will Deal) May 16, 2012

    she looked white in the video! no shade or anything…just saying it like i saw it

  18. Suicide Blonde May 16, 2012

    Nicki looks good here and Breezy too.

  19. kc May 16, 2012

    Someone could have sung the song cause she didnt have any chemistry as far as singing with chris cause she is really not a good singer but her rap was nice with song. Nas looked good but he didnt kiss back like she did. It made it look kinda like she was into it then he was. What was the crazy face she made at the end? Akward lol. The storyline was nice though.

  20. Nahjee May 16, 2012

    One of nicki Minaj best video since moment for life true story.

    Nicki ain’t going nowhere anytime soon

    Cus we got iggy telling lies about her deals

    Azealia banks beefing with people twitter and ain’t worrying about her damn music.

  21. Roman May 16, 2012

    That was a solid video for a solid song. I just think the song isn’t commercial enough to make waves, it’s not gettin airplay. This will boost sales but not to the extent that it will make the song a hit

  22. YUMADTHO May 16, 2012

    Her skin looked lighter because of the lighting and makeup. Notice the scene when she is given the car by Nas her skin tone is a bit darker. Don’t act like she was dark to begin with though. That blonde hair isn’t helping, it washes her face. But overall the video is cute.

  23. Nice May 16, 2012

    Nice video. More importantly, Chris looks relaxed and happy.

  24. Roman May 16, 2012

    I adore the face she made @ the end. It’s like “stay mad” face. She’s ratchet cute lol.

  25. Ugh May 16, 2012

    I saw no chemistry whatsoever between Nas and Nicki, yall stop lyin’.

  26. PrettigurlrockD May 16, 2012

    I like how the people with the thumbs down have more common sense not to be impressed with everything just cuz it’s shoved in their faces. Sorry some ppl have higher standards for music. Is nicki a good entertainer? Yes but she can’t sing so I don’t know y she is…the video was cute but nothing special.

  27. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE. May 16, 2012

    Two FLOPS

    who cares ?? 🙂

  28. Justathought (Azealia Banks is here) May 16, 2012

    She was so white she looked Ashy! Wth! Get rid of that blonde lace front and stick to black hair. I loved that she was not dressed all crazy and I actually think her and Nas would be a cute couple. This>>>starships

  29. Strange4sumchange May 16, 2012

    I think im gonna create a new drinking game.. me and my friends are gonna get together every Monday morning (f*** life).. sit in a circle.. watch this video.. and take a shot of EVERCLEAR every time this b**** rite here touch that blonde contraption on her head.. Seriously.. n Whoever keeps gluing them wigs to Nicki’s eyebrows needs to be shot in the face.. her hairline seem to be inching its way to her ass crack with every video… meh follow me on twitter :/

    • I&I(yardie) May 17, 2012

      this made me chuckle a bit

  30. mONSTERHIVE May 16, 2012

    I would seriously pay good money to see what @LACEFRONCE looks like. It’s not shade, just curiosity.

  31. itsme May 16, 2012

    That shyt was straight up POPCORN!

    Ok seriously was this a promo video for NAS? Because I most def saw him more than Nicki…I must admit I watched the video for Nas…FREE PROMO…LOL…

    Nas didnt look not a lick interested in Nicki…he was not looking at her and at all…LOL…and that kiss at the end was my laugh…Nas didnt even more an inch when they kissed…LOOOOL…

    The song is still wack…. #imjustsayin

    Why the hell does she look so damn white? She bleached the shyt of her skin…she is not even light skinned…she is straight up on some Clorox Bleach status…

  32. @he_flexxin on Twitter May 16, 2012

    I liked the video! Great look no flaws! Follow me @he_flexxin on twitter & check out my youtube channel

  33. breach May 16, 2012

    Moving on….this was a typical video. Nothing breathtaking nothing amazing. Stop reaching please! It was neither bad or good. It was just there

  34. BEEZ IN DA TRAP May 16, 2012

    GO NICKI!!! The growth is real this is my favorite video of Nicki’s. As long as she keeps getting better and better everything will work out in her favor. she’s so pretty it ain’t even funny. NICKI MINAJ IS PRETTIER THAN EVERY FEMALE IN THE INDUSTRY YES INCLUDING BEYONCE….. YEP I SAID IT…TIS TRUE!

    • HALF AMAZIN May 17, 2012

  38. Bey Fan May 16, 2012

    Cool video… kept my attention.

    We dont have to analyze every video….

  39. commanderofthedancefloor May 16, 2012

    prettier than beyonce??

    girl stop posting comments while drinking because that is the only explanation for that statement! lol

    anyways its a cute video i would love for her to ditch the wigs and costumes and just be onika for a little bit!!

    oh and not to be too much of a shady b**** but how much has pfrr sold?? because someone told me less than 900k!!! and for months i heard from the barbz that nicki would outsell rihanna, beyonce, gaga and katy!! but apparently thats not happening!! keep in mind by three weeks all of the other artist had sold way more than 1 million world wide!!!

  40. Diane May 16, 2012

    Nicki will do anything to garner street cred. Remember, she paid Nas $250K for his verse on Champion so ain’t no telling what she paid him to do this video. Besides, Nas was in TMZ for owing the IRS. Nas ain’t no fool.

  41. Uhh Okaii May 16, 2012

    the video wasnt all was fit the song…but uhhh the blonde wig the over the top make-up..she looked mad fake…plus she look like shes bleaching

  42. Teacher May 16, 2012

    It was an ok video….Nicki looked really pretty…BeatemDown Brown looked like the abuser,lier,cheater that he is! What’s new?

    Cool video… kept my attention.

    Unless it’s Rihanna’s huh?

  44. D May 16, 2012

    that stupid ho look like she’s one skin bleaching treatment away from looking like an albino. NO!

  45. mONSTERHIVE May 16, 2012

    @D B**** sit all the way the f*** down. Nicki is not bleaching boo. Check out these pictures taken YESTERDAY when she was performing in Australia same ole’ caramel skin Nicki. Stop acting like she was ever Lil Kim’s skin tone. You haters stay reaching making invalid claims & assumptions about someone’s character.

  46. nz boi May 17, 2012

    I don’t understand..They made a wish, he bought her a car, happily ever after…..So what was with the crysmile at the end?

  47. The Zolonski Trap May 17, 2012

    If you really found something wrong with this video, take your ignorant ass else where. For one, Chris had nothing to do with the story, he was just the feature. Him and nicki “flirted” and had fun to match the theme of the song. Clearly Nas is her “MAN” in the video. Nicki looked beautiful and toned it down a whooole lot. Her outfits where banging and her mood was on point. No if’s, and’s or but’s about it. I don’t know why you nonNicki fans even waste the time you manage to have to comment on Nicki post, knowing you don’t like her. Is there nothing better for you to do??? #RealTalk It would do everybody a favor if anybody that said something dumb and completely negative above me would crawl somewhere and die.

  48. jizzjizz=Lick it up May 17, 2012

    Last time I checked we could comment on whatever we wanted to @ zolonski.
    Damn this Stan s*** is going to far

  49. The Zolonski Trap May 17, 2012

    never said you couldnt, im just saying find a REAL reason to be upset cause the haterz on here NEVER have a real reason…

  50. Os May 17, 2012

    love the video,they all lock it down,nicki looks good.

  51. Saetana May 17, 2012

    That was about 1000% better than the hot mess that was Starships (and the hot mess that Nicki looked in it), the outfits she was wearing were nice and, more importantly, took the emphasis away from her awful fake ass. This is her nicest looking video since Super Bass, the song is pretty meh though ;o)

  52. credits May 17, 2012

    If nicki wrote the part where she is singing, i have to give her credit, this is an r&b song more than a rap song, she could’ve given this to an r&b singer, keri hilson would’ve killed this, same with kelly rowland or maybe even a ciara attempt for her comeback record and then nicki could have collected the publishing cheques and kept her rap verse.

  53. Lisa May 17, 2012

    She;s bleaching.

  54. Raven May 17, 2012

    Is that a white girl with Nas?

  55. HoustonGirl May 17, 2012

    Nas lost all my respect.You were calming hip hop is dead,but to do a song with the bytch that’s killing it.Pathetic.

  56. GRAPEJUICE May 17, 2012

    I liked the video but why does niki face always caked up and her lashes always so thick? Do people really judge beauty off makeup and accessories?

    • Virtuoso Intellect May 17, 2012


      Cus Nicki is not ordinarily a pretty girl … At all. Did u not see her mixtape days?

  57. the real xoxo May 17, 2012

    okay video, but they showed way too much of Nas! chris brown ruined it with his cringe-worthy expressions.

    • mobwife May 17, 2012

      The only thing “cringe worthy” is your involvement with this post!

      • RDK May 17, 2012

        Co-Sign Lolk.

  58. antertain May 17, 2012

    Well clearly her best video in the Roman Reloaded Era.

    Its nice and not overly super serious with the acting part (making faces, laughing etc..).
    Made the video cute

  59. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) May 17, 2012

    So glad Nas was in the video! Hope this gives him more buzz for his album and the singles. 🙂

    Back to the video now, Nicki looked great, even though the wig was obviously terrible. I loved how she looked during her rap verse when she was next to Nas. The video overall was cool. The kiss was obviously the only really intriguing part of it, everything else was a little forgettable, like the song itself (no shade)

  60. JP May 17, 2012

    Love the video. Nice to see Nicki without all the theatrics and bizarre outfits. Also looks like she had some rhythm in this video. Maybe she is listening and considering some of the feedback she has been getting?

  61. mobwife May 17, 2012


    I see what you are saying but I think this is for a niche audience.Her Barbz and TeamBreezy love it and those of us who LOVE NAS are simply drooling…lol 🙂
    I think it is what it ts and all will be okay reardless of the songs chart placement. I actually think the vid will make it a hit!

  62. mobwife May 17, 2012

    LOVE IT! Nicki looked good, Chris looked good Nas looked good…damn, it was just a good looking video HATERS…. 🙂

    **Beautiful people are #WINNING

  63. James Ivo May 17, 2012

    You have to check this out!

  64. princely86 May 17, 2012

    I think it was a cute video, and it made me like the song a bit more (which, as artists these days seem to ignore, SHOULD connect you to the song a bit more)

  65. Lax May 17, 2012

    @XYZ,,,,,,I know yo ass is trolling this post and just so you’d know
    with yo shyt talking ass since you or so hell bent on rihanna and what shes
    doing ,,,take a look/glance at rihanna’s for last year and once again she is
    listed with the big girls and while you keep trying to shyt talk her feature
    movie so dam bad you put these numbers in yo pipe and smoke them while
    yo ass is adding up all of the others tickets and paper.
    And xyz add up rihanna’s haul from last year and this year and then
    carefully add chris’s last year and this year and put it in yo pipe and smoke and keep hating on Rihanna s much success and pitting every tom, d*** and harry ahead of her and before her as she keeps right on counting her paper.

    • Kimiloe May 18, 2012

      oh come on really??? did u really have to bring her up? Chris is a person of his own u know that right? he is not joined in the hip with her, she doesn’t really have to tag along in every post about him, like now u did not have to bring her up!

  66. KeyAmino May 17, 2012

    Kinda like this vid…..but what the f**ks up with that creepy face at the very end. lol

  67. chase May 17, 2012

    good video I LOVE IT

  68. I&I(yardie) May 17, 2012

    Nice song, boring video but Chris is looking fresh. Nicki is so fake looking I cannot stand it.

  69. POP ROYALTY ( Révolution) May 17, 2012

    i LOVE it , so KOOL 🙂

    3:00 – 3:12 >>>>>>>

    this is my fav part 🙂 !

    ad i loved CB’s moments. but i don’t think it will do well in charts … 🙁

    BTW : WHY she look so f*****’ WHITE ?!

  70. I&I(yardie) May 17, 2012

    i could listen to CB’s verse on this song over and over, its so sweet.

  71. Kimiloe May 18, 2012

    This is…, I’m just not feeling it at all, its like Breezy is just fulfiling a duty or something, I mean he is just too good for it.
