Nicki Minaj debuts music video for 'Stupid Hoe' (Video)
Nicki Minaj debuted her latest music video, "Stupid Hoe" on Friday, linking to a video that is too racy to air on television.
The 28-year-old hip hop and pop star, known for her bright, colorful and often quirky outfits as well as her music, appears in the video in a patent leather and cheetah-print bodysuit, trapped in a cage.
"Can't premiere on a network b/c it's important that my art is not tampered with, or compromised prior to you viewing it for the 1st time," Minaj Tweeted on Thursday.
Minaj also announced that she will release her new album, "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded" on April 3, 2012 instead of Valentine's Day as she previously stated.
The album follows the 2010 release of her debut album, simply titled "Pink Friday," which contains the bonus track "Super Bass" and the song "Roman's Revenge." The latter features rapper Eminem and references Minaj's angry alter-ego, Roman Zolanski.
At the American Music Awards, Minaj received the honors of Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist and Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Album for "Pink Friday," which has sold more than 1.6 million copies.
Minaj enjoys a diverse audience - she toured with pop star Britney Spears and her fans include children. In October, she appeared on Ellen DeGeneres' talk show to surprise two of her biggest fans - two young British girls whose YouTube video covering the singer's hit "Super Bass" went viral.
