    I was really disappointed in this video started out good and then went down the drain. To me it as so dull and I luv me some Nicki.

  15. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue January 28, 2011

    “Video will be re-posted shortly”.

  16. beyslayingyofav January 28, 2011

    YAHZ Nicki gave me LIFE!!!!!! her best video to date! this could be her biggest solo hit to date too 🙂 and for the haters SIT DOWN! Nicki aint going nowhere so you should just get to no her 😛

  17. PRINCESS_RIRI January 28, 2011

    I don’t recall any much of any anticipation for this video.

  18. stan January 28, 2011

    this song sucks… it’s repetitive

  19. RihannaForever January 28, 2011

    @Princess_Riri
    Where have you been?

  20. UGh January 28, 2011

    i was expecting a different concept. the beginning was wack as hell……lmao

    luv me some Nicki though

  21. AWW January 28, 2011

    i was expecting more!!!!

    haha anyways i think it was slow paced I agree with DEE EUGENE’s comment

    but SHE IS SOOO PRETTY and they look cute together 🙂

    still nice….

    WAITING for FLY music video with rihanna

  22. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue January 28, 2011

    @ RF:

    Thanks for the link. Video’s alright, the song is surprisingly nice. And finally, Drake has stopped imitating Lil Wayne. But am I the only one who thinks the song has a 2003 vibe to it?

  23. PINK FRIDAY H** January 28, 2011

    LUV HER.. SHE IS GORGEOUS

  24. LEO January 28, 2011

    YESSSSS! MTV YOU BETTER THROW SHADE!

    “ONCE UPON A TIME THERE LIVED A “KING” NAMED NICKI”

    DID Y’ALL WACKI STANS PEEP THAT?!

  25. pl January 28, 2011

    it was…… blahhhh

  26. beyslayingyofav January 28, 2011

    @LEO dumb b**** MTV didnt direct the video

  27. Staring January 28, 2011

    I was expecting better than this…

  28. Dave January 28, 2011

    Her 1st high QUALITY (in every aspect of the meaning) video, FINALLY! I admit the acting @ the beginning was good, & I did laugh & enjoy it. Other than that the video was basically a performance piece. Not really bad, but nothing to extravagant or to write home about either. Like the song thou.

  29. Alexa January 28, 2011

    I love this song but have to admit the video was kinda wack…

    Niki is so pretty but she could have come better with this, the concept was cool I guess but the execution was bland and lacked real creativity and Drake is so effin goofy how the hell did his ass used to act and eff up his facial expressions like that…smh

    Overall fail…sorry Niki

  30. RihannaForever January 28, 2011

    @TrueBlue
    I think the video is her best solo one to date, but it’s just okay. The song and video both have an early 2000s vibe to them, and I agree that Drake is finally starting to sound like Drake and not Lil Wayne.

    Did you listen to Pink Friday?

  31. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue January 28, 2011

    ^^^ No.

  32. RihannaForever January 28, 2011

    @TrueBlue
    Really? I’m actually a bit surprised.

  33. вeяячℓiσuѕ вeα January 28, 2011

    love it!!

  34. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue January 28, 2011

    @ RF:

    LOL, why? I haven’t exactly made it a secret that I’m not a fan of her music. And I know you’ll say “but you still listen to Rihanna, and you don’t like her”, well I like her music, it’s just that I’ll never pay to see her live. I’ve heard the singles Nicki has released, and I am so unimpressed by them that I’m not even curious enough to listen to her album. Who knows, MAYBE sometime in the future I will, but as of now I’m not that interested.

  35. RihannaForever January 28, 2011

    @TrueBlue
    I know you’re not a fan of Nicki’s, but for some reason I thought you’d listen to it. LOL, I’m not quite sure why. Besides “Moment 4 Life”, the previous singles before it were the weaker songs on the album, and I agree with you on that.

    Also, I don’t understand why she’s releasing her second album so quickly. Like, why does she find it necessary to release it this year?

  36. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue January 28, 2011

    ^^^ Wait, she’s already planning a second album? First Kanye, now her? Over saturation much?

  37. RihannaForever January 28, 2011

    ^^So many people are doing that lately. Kanye’s is possibly releasing another record this summer, Drake’s releasing his second in March or April, Nicki’s working on her second, and of course there’s Lil Wayne who released two albums last year and is about to release another.

  38. KaVion January 28, 2011

    You defiantly have to watch the video twice to really appreciate it..
    This is the best Nicki’s looked in a video and the setting is beautiful.
    I loved the ending to, overall I loved the storyline and quality but I think Nicki & Drake could have put on more of a show..and I love M4L, it’s the perfect graduation or really any type of celebration song, the part y aspect and the inspirational opening & closing lines.
    The fly video needs to be GROUNDBREAKING though because the song will be huge and solidify her as one of the great femcees.

  39. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue January 28, 2011

    @ RF:

    WTF??? What year do they think this is, 1975?

  40. Bossbitch January 28, 2011

    NICKI MINAJ IS A BOSS ASS B**** LOVE HER

  41. LG3 January 28, 2011

    I like this video it’s cute and it does fit the song which is probably one of the best on the album, she’s obviously appealing to the masses which anyone smart in her position would do…more power to nicky and all her personalities

  42. RihannaForever January 28, 2011

    @Kavion
    Nicki said she and Rihanna will be changing the world in more ways than one with the “Fly” video, so I know I have high expectations. It does seem that Nicki cared more about making that video high quality and consequently rushed this video. I’m excited for the “Girls Fall Like Dominoes” and “Save Me” videos, though.

    @TrueBlue
    I know, it’s crazy. But at the same time, I’m really excited for Drake’s 2nd record, Take Care, since he said it’ll be catchier (some of the raps from Thank Me Later just dragged on and on), but also inspired by Winnie the Pooh. Nicki said her 2nd record will be crazy, so I’m hoping it’s more in a rap direction. Pink Friday was understandably commercial after all of her features, but I expect more rap and hip-hop next go round. She did say it’ll be very Roman-like (“Roman’s Revenge”), so I’m excited. A little soon, though.

  43. TJ January 28, 2011

    Ok… not only did they “f*** up” and call her a KING during the opening… the video was just TERRIBLE… I actually think the song is ok, but It was AWFUL..

    Who the hell gets married in a white dress and pink wig? Seriously?????????
    This chick redines “extra”.

  44. RihannaForever January 28, 2011

    @TJ
    They did the king thing on purpose.

  45. SohhJavier January 28, 2011

    its martha bitchhhhhhhh yess nicki i love u

  46. DeannDmere January 28, 2011

    I loved it!
    She is so silly with a sense of humor and i absolutely adore that about her!
    Great video concept!
    Besides Drake needing a dam Tan he did good also..lol!

    Love it!
    A definite Hit!

  47. TC ;D January 28, 2011

    OH & FOLLOW BRANDY ON TWITTER AT @4VERBRANDY

  48. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue January 28, 2011

    @ RF:

    I’m curious as to what Nicki will bring on her second album. I like her rhymes on Roman’s Revenge and Monster, but so far those are the only two songs featuring Nicki that I genuinely like. But she goes hard (as she would say) on those tracks, I hope the second album will be more along those lines. Some sick beats wouldn’t hurt either.

    And Drake is inspired by Winnie The Pooh? LMAOOOOOO!!!

  49. KaVion January 28, 2011

    @Rihanna Forever
    I have great expectations for fly to.. But I didnt like how nicki looked in that picture. The only way I’ll be satisfied with a GFLD video will be if everyone she mentions is included in the video, otherwise I don’t need to see it. Im CRAZY excited for the Save Me video though, and did you hear Did IT On Em will be next? Am I the only one who wants one for catch me though? That song has her best story telling and I could picture them in at a resort/ ski loft type setting

  50. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue January 28, 2011

    Oh Lord, Psycho Nicky is back again, this time as its other alter ego TC;D.

  51. KaVion January 28, 2011

    @ True Blue
    I’m surprised those are your favorites. I thought you’d be a fan of her more heartfelt meaningful songs..

  52. KaVion January 28, 2011

    Lmao & I think when Drake mentioned Winnie the Pooh he just meant he was inspired by his childhood lol

  53. RihannaForever January 28, 2011

    @TrueBlue
    I want something edgier and more rap-influenced but still deep lyrically from Nicki for her second record. We’ll see, though. As for Drake, I totally agree. I just laughed when he said that. I don’t know WHAT to think for Take Care.

    @Kavion
    I’m expecting great things from the “Fly” video (since I stan for Rihanna and Nicki), but I don’t know if it’ll deliver since the picture was kind of weird-looking. I doubt those celebrities will be featured in the GFLD video, but a domino-inspiration with effects could be cool. “Save Me” is amazing as a song, and I cannot wait for the “Did It on’Em” video. I love that song. She said even “Muny” and “Roman’s Revenge” might get videos. I’m guessing with all of these videos, not all of those songs will be singles, though.

    “Catch Me” is one of my FAVORITE Pink Friday songs, but I could picture a deeper video with something more rustic and dark. “Russian Roulette”-like, though it wouldn’t fit with the pink theme. I understand your ski loft thought, though.

  54. jwellz10 January 28, 2011

    I AM FEELING THE SONG MORE NOW.I LIKE THE WHOLE CINDERELLA THEME..A LITTLE BIT OVER THE TOP AT THE BEGINNING..I GUESS BECAUSE ACTING ISN’T HER FIELD..BUT OVERALL GOOD VIDEO..SHE’S ONCE AGAIN SETTING THE BAR HIGHER FOR FEMALE RAPPERS VISUALLY..

  55. KAT DELUNA FAN January 28, 2011

    This is like a taylor swift video.I am too old for this bumble gum s*** videos !!!

    They were so cute in the vids

  56. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue January 28, 2011

    @ Kavion:

    Haven’t listened to the album, but the meaningful ones she’s released so far (Your Love, the one where she’s wearing pajamas and has a good-looking guy in her video, I can’t remember the title, and M4L) are just okay at best for me. She’s a little fluffy (for lack of a better term) on the softer songs, I don’t notice the talent that she shows in RR and Monster.

    @ RF:

    Do you like “Raining Men”?

  57. Badd January 28, 2011

    This is okayyyy.
    Still not really hip hop at all…she’s really just pop and just calling
    it hip hop so she stands out since no other hip hop artists are out
    & then she doesn’t have ot compete with pop artist.
    But it was her best video to date but then again I don’t think that’s
    saying much….but overall it was okay.

  58. yj January 28, 2011

    Cinderella theme in played out though

  59. Go U January 28, 2011

    Drake seems like a good actor. I liked the video though. It was cute but it was missing something. I would have had more people in the ball and when she walked in all eyes on her cuz this was her moment. Maybe one of those harps with angels singing the background vocals to add more flavor. I liked it though. The first part and the end was the best imo.

  60. RihannaForever January 28, 2011

    @TrueBlue
    It’s a little all over the place, but I still find it a fun and catchy urban track. It’d be a good single, which I think was the target for it.

    @Badd
    You’re becoming the Gaga stan version of S***. She IS hip-pop, which is a fusion of pop and hip-hop. She isn’t pop.

  61. KaVion January 28, 2011

    @Rihanna Forever
    Just because of the way she describes it and how she mentions mountains and everything. I could picture it starting off lighthearted then as the story progresses and they argue a blizzard could roll in and the environment could become very dark and there could be scenes where it looks like she’s falling off the mountain, since its called Catch Me. I think she could pull all those celebs together! I think they’d want to be apart of something THAT big. I could picture a touching video for Dear Old Nicki to.

  62. KaVion January 28, 2011

    @True Blue
    How do you feel about Fly?
    & have you heard Dear Old Nicki & Catch Me?

  63. kmft January 28, 2011

    i f****** lovve nickyyyyyyyyyy…can’t wait for fly video

  64. Badd January 28, 2011

    @ RF:
    To me she’s just pop….i’m used to hip hop being hip hop.
    not using pop as a crossover momentum.
    if you don’t like that oh well,, nobody told you to respond boo.

  65. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue January 28, 2011

    @ RF:

    To be honest, I was extremely disappointed when I found that it wasn’t a cover of the Weather Girls’ song!

    I’m not a fan of the song, but I actually hope that they make a video for it. Hopefully a really, really good one since neither of them have given us any spectacular videos as of late.

  66. Go U January 28, 2011

    @badd what do you mean it’s not hip hop? This is hip hop not pop. Maybe some pop flavor because its commercial hip hop. I wish people online would understand what a genre is.

    And @rihannaforver it makes sense to start working on a new album. Jay z put out an album almost every year. Drake is putting out one. Rihanna seemed like she just recently put out an album before this one. With that song about the rude boy. These artist need to realize this is their career and they have to work not constantly take breaks.

  67. Badd January 28, 2011

    @ RF:
    & Nicki used to be really cool back in her old days…
    like Beam Me Up Scotty days….now I just don’t get it.
    I mean there are a few songs on Pink Friday that I like
    like Blazin’ but most of them either are straight pop
    or the lyrics are kind of ehhhh.

  68. Badd January 28, 2011

    @ go u:
    hip-pop is not a genre….

    but anywayss,,
    the song is good it should be increasing in airplay & digital sales after this
    especially airplay…but the video is just okay.

  69. Go U January 28, 2011

    @badd what are you talking about? A lady gaga fan would try to give somebody a rule book on what “hip hop” is supposed to be. Lady gaga that’s pop. This song is hip hop/ rap. smh.

  70. VA STAND UP!! January 28, 2011

    I loved it! Especially the beginning with her talking to her Fairy God Mother, very cute! Those voices she always uses really came in handy for this video. Usually her songs are a hit or miss for me, but her video’s never disappoint! I love how she adds acting into all of them. I know the acting is supposed to be a lil over the top but I think she might actually be a pretty good actress. I wouldn’t mind seeing her make that leap to the big screen one day.

    And dare I say it, Drake’s funny looking ass actually looked cute! *gasp* He’s still a cornball though. Lol! They had pretty good chemistry in the video, but not as good as him and certain someone else. I wonder who he truly wants.

  71. Go U January 28, 2011

    @badd The song is hip hop/ rap end of story. smh.

    Wow I wonder what hip hop u have been listening to lately. *rolls eyes*

  72. KaVion January 28, 2011

    @Badd
    No one is in one specific lane anymore. Not hip hop artists, R&B, pop, country or even rock artists, everyone’s all over the place. You might wanna get used to that.
    SN: Only two tracks on PF are straight pop.

  73. Go U January 28, 2011

    @VA Stand up u mean rihanna. Yea. I think Drake is more attracted to nicki than she is him and she kind of withdraws.

  74. Badd January 28, 2011

    @ kavion:
    yeah i’m definitely starting to realize that now.
    with the music industries change and everything…
    everyone sampling a little bit of everything…which in
    some case is pretty cool.

  75. Go U January 28, 2011

    @badd Nobodys begging u to listen. Maybe u should stick to gagas hollering ass instead of rap since u dont know the difference. This is a rap song.

  76. RihannaForever January 28, 2011

    @TrueBlue
    I hoped it would be, because I thought that would be fantastic, but her original is still fairly well-done. The video for it must be amazing, because I’m so underwhelmed by their videos, as of late.

    @Badd
    Pink Friday isn’t straight pop at all. Only “Check It Out” and “Your Love” are pop, and even those are more pop with strong electronic, R&B, and hip-hop influences. Like Kavion said, though, get used to it. No music is straight anything anymore.

  77. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue January 28, 2011

    @ RF:

    I would kill to hear Nicki’s verse on a cover, I can only imagine what it would consist of, lol. That’s primarily why I wanted it to be a cover.

  78. RihannaForever January 28, 2011

    @TrueBlue
    LOL, it would be quite the interesting rendition.

  79. Meow January 28, 2011

    It was kind of okay till she opened her mouth
    all that money cant buy class

  80. MeloMajik January 28, 2011

    Ok I very rarely comment on here, but I see some people thinking Nicki was thrown shade in her own video lol. So to keep any other people from looking like asses… Listen to what Nicki says when the beat drops on the song. But I’ll put it here anyway, she says… in this very moment i’m KING! So the opening goes very well with the video… no shade thrown lol #EPICFAIL

  81. KaVion January 28, 2011

    @Badd
    I think it’s great, no one has to be a certain type of anything. They can just make the music they feel like making, no being boxed in

  82. Badd January 28, 2011

    @ Go u:
    ummm have a seat…why are you still talking to me??
    just because someone doesn’t completely agree with you
    or your fav…you feel the need to argue…and say nonsense.
    i’ve already told you what I thought…it’s not rap to me….get that.
    good.
    so just stfu….& stop talking….you’re embarrasing yourself.
    http://blog.vh1.com/files/2008/06/sm_ny_slappy.gif

    @RF:
    I didn’t say her whole album was pop….read.
    but the singles that she releases are. what i said was
    that some were but her lyrics were what were like okayyyy.
    but most of them except for a few were good.
    like Fly….which I can’t wait for her to release….
    Blazin, Save Me, & Super Bass.

  83. Jay2010 January 28, 2011

    IT GAVE ME LIFE DARLING, IT GAVE ME LI-FE #MarthasVoice#

    Next ! I’m waiting for the Fly video, it’s gonna be as great as M4L.

  84. Tran January 28, 2011

    Reminds me of Lil KIm ” No Matter What They Say” video

  85. KAT DELUNA FAN January 28, 2011

    I saw it again.Not my cup of tea but it’s 10000 times better than WMN.So

    -featuring with Drake
    Nicki 1- Rihanna 0

  86. Badd January 28, 2011

    @ Kavion:
    yeah in some ways it is….like in Rated R with Rihanna
    trying to sample some rock in some songs…i just think
    that it didn’t do as well…because it was a horrible
    transition from one period to the next. Lady GaGa samples
    rock in You & I…..& Beyonce’s trying to “create her own genre”
    (whatever that means haha)

  87. lance January 28, 2011

    i loved the video

  88. HMPHH. January 28, 2011

    love the video.
    CAN’T WAIT FOR THE FLYY VIDEO. : )

  89. KaVion January 28, 2011

    @Badd
    It work for Rihanna because she’s TOO pop, people saw her as a poser. Lady Gaga’s voice reminds me of old rock & roll and blue eyed soul so much, then throw in some synthesizers & electronic beats & she’s suitable for any genre. Beyonce clarified that whole deal lol. She meant to say she’s combining so many different genres while adding her own style that you won’t be able to title it a specific genre

  90. nickalus Randle January 28, 2011

    LOVE IT , LOVE HER , i so cant wait 2 buy it 4 my iTunes…

  91. DION-ISH January 28, 2011

    If Any POP artist of today can transition well between any sound and genre and have a respect from artist in it…Its Rihanna.

    Thats All.

  92. Tyrell January 28, 2011

    U CAN TELL WHO TRENT IS A FAN OF.HE NEVER SAYS ANYTHING BAD ABOUT NICKI,BUT HE BASHES ALL THE OTHER FEMALE RAPPERS EVERY CHANCE HE GETS,LOL.

  93. Jas January 28, 2011

    BASURA DEBRIS!!!!!!!

  94. Tyrell January 28, 2011

    DID ANYBODY NOTICED THAT IN THE BEGINNING IT SAID KING,LOL

  95. DION-ISH January 28, 2011

    Rude Boy and Whats My Name Were even covered by Rock Bands…..Like um. Rihanna can reach ANY audience.

  96. G January 28, 2011

    its cute!

  97. WERK January 28, 2011

    YASSS NICKI!! B**** SLAY THE HAS-BEEEEN TO DEATH

  98. S*** January 28, 2011

    This MAY or MAY NOT be a good video but the song is so TERRIBLE that I had to skip through it 🙁 the intro was cool but my god, everythink Drake touches might be a hit but It also SUCKS!! Please somebody just KIILL Drake please. All his s*** Sucks & hes so mediocre at EVERYTHING…

    So this is what music has come to?? ==>>

  99. S*** January 28, 2011

    EVERYTHING Drake touches might be a hit but It also S***!!

  100. raraskils January 28, 2011

    i liked her acting in the beginning, but then the video became so boring and lost its appeal. :/

    her songs are surprisingly subpar, considering all the hype she generated before her debut was released. a lot of her songs, are pretty mediocre actually. but she has the potential for so much more.

  101. Go U January 28, 2011

    lmao @ingrid Okonta ahhh I liked da video and im not 3- 16 yr old. But thats kind of funny though.

    @badd Nothing to do with a fan. I just hate when people speak on what they don’t know. Saying this song is not rap in your opinion is dumb because opinion or not the fact is its a rap song dumb ass lol.

    Drake did not need to be in this video nor the song…she looks great! now thats Nicki minus the pink wig…good work! keep it up…and why dont we all stop talking about who she slayed or who slays her and appreciate this song and video for what it is…for me Kim will always be that chick, but going back even further we got Salt, Roxxane Chantae, Light and L. Boogie…who I still believed are un matched-for me, but Nicki represented…

  103. Speaks Truth January 28, 2011

    I love you nickiiii this was everything I pictured. I cannot get a vision together for “Fly” but I got the perfect vision for “superbass” I love that song!!!

    Keep doing ya thing nicki, wish you could get a video to all the songs!!! Lol

  104. antertain January 28, 2011

    Cute video I guess and it can cater to her younger fans too.

    She looks great and really pretty with the pink wig.
    Her n Drizzy were ok but the connection wasnt there 100 in the status of a couple.

    Love the track tho and hot lyrics.
    Video draws in the pop crowd on to this HIP-HOP track.

  105. Auntie Jackie January 28, 2011

    This video was cute, I kind of appreciated that it WASN’T overdone. And, as far as this being a pop song, pop means popular music, so yes it’s pop. Pop also implies that it’s been watered down in a way to appeal to everyone, and I’d agree that the style of this song very deliberately tries to appeal to everyone. It’s pop music, of course. Just because they’re “rapping” doesn’t mean, somehow it’s not pop.

    Nicki and Drake and both pop artists, they try deliberately to appeal to a wide, international audience. More people are trying to do that now, strait away instead of “waiting” to cross over.

  106. Y’all are too fake January 28, 2011

    Fly video is gonna be boring. Rihanna’s voice bores me.,

  107. GangsterA January 28, 2011

    i love it cute concept nicki looks amazing so f***** fierce i love it can’t wait for the fly video

  108. GagaIsLove January 28, 2011

    I love the video, she looks gorgeous& flawless!

  109. Napaul January 28, 2011

    THIS WAS LIKE WATCHING PAINT DRY! BORING!

  110. Prince January 28, 2011

    Hmm, I enjoyed it actually…. Didn’t think I would, since I’m not really a fan of either artist, but it wasn’t bad at all.

    *Those head movements were getting a little much sometimes though! lol

  111. Breezymixer January 28, 2011

    I like Nicki, but serious?? This video is bullsh*t… song is ok, but the video?? what the hell were they thinking? Sorry Nicki, this sucks….

  112. Who’s Cedric? January 28, 2011

    Hmmmm…absolutely love this song but the video is a gargantuan let down. Had the potential to be so cute but it was bland and kinda stagnant . Hopefully ‘Fly’ makes up for it.

  113. Rihanna’s crackhead daddy January 28, 2011

    When she was wearing that greenish/gold dress with the pink wig, that is the best she has ever looked imo WOW so beautiful

    other then that, boring as hell

  114. TTT January 28, 2011

    maybe that king thing had somethng to do with lil kim cause everyone would go crazy if they saw nicki calling her self a queen

  115. LISTEN January 28, 2011

    Nicki Minaj said so many times in interview she started with singing and she was on her way to be a actress but when she was hanging outside with her boys she liked to rap with them thats how she started rapping… and she felt like she was made by people cause they want her to get hood but she wanna be herself so i guess this is the kind of music she wanted to make

  116. Beyonce: Her name alone defines greatness January 28, 2011

    Loved it! ^_^

  117. Kevin January 28, 2011

  130. Anthony The Great January 28, 2011

    I loved it.

    Again, the haters are just looking for something to hate on until Him makes her highlt ‘anticipated’ <–(I know laughable right) comeback (which will never happen).

  131. Speaks Truth January 28, 2011

    @ Anthony the great, llabbbbbbbb that b**** is #epicfail

  132. Dev January 28, 2011

    Not a Nicki fan and think she’s overrated at best.
    The video started off great, i really warmed to her (she might be good as an actress) but after 1.40 the video became basic and standard and went down hill…shame really.
    Songs just okay, dunno if i”ll be bumping any of it in 5-10 years time though

  133. lola January 29, 2011

    OMG, this muaix video was so great! It was beautiful and definitely Nicki’s best music video up to date! Her acting is very good. I loved, loved, watching her as the fairy godmother! She is too funny. She is definitely not a gimmick and has proved that in this video. The setting was so fantasy like and I liked how she wasn’t wearing wacky outfits, just grand and fancy dresses. I love this song and I see her gorwing as an music artists very quickly. That’s a good sign. Well done Nick!

  134. lola January 29, 2011

    I meant *music, *growing, and *a

  135. rob January 29, 2011
