Grammy Awards 2012: Nicki Minaj and the 'Pope' try to out-Gaga Lady Gaga
We assume Minaj was doing her best to be provocative, but instead of coming off as blasphemous, the red carpet stunt paled in comparison to last year's egg/womb/spiky face spectacle from Gaga.
Perhaps Minaj was taking a cue from Madonna, with whom she performed at the Super Bowl last week. Madonna is famous for stirring up controversy with religious imagery, particularly early in her career. Minaj may have gotten a more pleasant reaction
Chris Harrison's best comment? "Insert joke here," he said lamely.
What do you think, readers? A bold, original move or a desperate play for Gaga's spotlight?
