Translating the Video: Nicki Minaj's 'Stupid Hoe' Music Video

Jan 24, 2012 | 8:50am EST

nicki minajNicki Minaj is definitely not known for her subtlety -- her eccentric wardrobe and over-the-top eye makeup are proof of that. Even her vocals are out there. But she's no Lady Gaga, no matter how hard she tries. Nevertheless, her musical antics never fail to catch our eye, however ridiculous, but they can warrant some sort of an explanation and I'm more than happy to oblige. The singer recently released a new music video for her song "Stupid Hoe" and it's interesting. So, if you're still sitting there, scratching your head and thinking "What did I just watch?" let me help to find the story amongst the madness...if that's even possible.


Nicki Minaj Wants Us To Know There Are Stupid Hoes in the World.

What we'd expect to see in the video:

A cat fight, perhaps.

What we actually get:

Pure and utter chaos. Nicki Minaj is a poor, down-on-her-luck stripper, trying desperately to make ends meat. But despite her struggles, she attempts to be the best stripper she can be -- practicing yoga-type stretches and constantly working on her cage dancing abilities. There's only one problem...all the other stripper girls are trying to out-do her and rob her of tips that are rightfully hers. It's then that she realizes these "Stupid Hoes" need to be taught a lesson, so she makes it her life's mission to seek vengeance on them, using an alien mask and strobe-like effects to scare them into quitting their stripper jobs. And guess what...it works! Now that she's the only stripper left, she can focus on more important things -- like earning enough money to become a big-time music artist. And with those Stupid Hoes all gone, anything is possible.
