When Nicki Minaj saw Madonna dressed as this celebrity, she gasped and said, “I didn’t mentally prepare for it.”
Nicki Minaj gasped when she spotted Madonna while filming a music video for one of their tracks. This was due to the fact that the Queen of Pop resembled another pop culture hero at the time. Here’s a peek at the song’s backstory.
Nicki Minaj explains why she believed she was filming a video with Madonna and a deceased idol at the same time.
At the 2012 Super Bowl, Madonna performed a set. She sang a collection of her past classics as well as one of her new songs, “Give Me All Your Luvin’,” during her set. Two major rappers, Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., were featured on the single.
The rappers also featured in the song’s music video. Madonna, Minaj, and M.I.A. wear clothing and blonde wigs similar to Marilyn Monroe’s look in the classic comedy The Seven Year Itch in one part in the video. Minaj’s skirt even blows upward, precisely like Monroe’s skirt in The Seven Year Itch’s most iconic scene. Minaj told Complex, “I definitely didn’t realize all of us were going to be dressed up as Marilyn.” “I had no mental preparation for that.”
Madonna penned one song as if she were possessed by a Quentin Tarantino character.
For Minaj, watching Madonna dressed as Monroe was a life-changing experience. “I genuinely gasped when I went on set and saw Madonna because it seemed like I was gazing at Marilyn Monroe, and I’m so infatuated with Marilyn Monroe,” she remarked. “I have Marilyn Monroe photographs all throughout my house, for example. When I saw Madonna, she reminded me of Marilyn Monroe, and it was strange because I felt like I was doing a video with both of my idols at the same time. “It was strange,” says the narrator.
