New Nicki Minaj, “Moment 4 Life,” video was inspired by the regal, romantic attire of Shakespeare’s era.
In the video, Minaj strolls around a palatial mansion in a voluminous blue gown — where she’s spotted by her “Moment” leading man and collaborator Drake — and vamps it up in a beaded corseted getup with a tulle train.
Minaj says, “I wanted to take a step away from, like, high fashion or, like, [a] hip-hop, sporty type of look and into just, like, real flowy and just to play dress-up,” she said. “I was envisioning a Shakespeare time, and I figured, ‘What would they wear?’ I felt like the first outfit kinda looked like, almost like you’re in Egypt somewhere back in the day, like a long time ago,” she added of the bejeweled draped blue dress.
