It's about that time of the year where we all fantasize about a tropical vacation, so Nicki Minaj's latest Starships video at least satisfies on the eye-candy level.
The video takes place in a Hawaii-like paradise, with lounging models on rocks and an ominous starship floating above the water. As if beamed from the aircraft, Nicki emerges from the ocean Splash-style with long green hair and a hot pink bikini. She shakes her hips in the water and writhes around on the sand, before the video takes on an island dance party feel where Nicki alternates cotton-candy colored wigs and geometric bathing suits.
Male and female dancers are splashed with brightly colored paint and dance amidst fire, while we're treated to a slew of Technicolor, kaleidoscope stills of Nicki and her crew.
Great song for the summer, but what's the story, per se? Thoughts?
