If you’ve seen any of Nicki Minaj’s videos, you know that she’s a woman of many characters. She’s dramatic. She’s animated. And she’s quite the personality.
So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that she took those talents to Saturday Night Live this week as she performed a couple of her hit songs and even participated in a few sketches. In this clip below, she plays the “bride of Blackenstein” in a skit with Kenan Thompson, Jay Pharoah and guest star Jesse Eisenberg. (He played Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network.)
Some quotables: “Excuse me, this hair is real.”
“Bride? Bride? Did you get me an invisible ring? ‘Cause I don’t see nothing on my finger. You don’t know me. I ain’t never met you. You taking me to dinner first or something.”
“I’m not hiding. I’m going out. It’s check day. I got an outfit on. I wanna dance, baby.”
Pure comedy for laughs? Or laughs at the expense of black women? Watch the clip below and sound off in the comments.
