So for everyone who may have been lost watching Nicki’s performance at the Grammy’s, she was giving her alter ego Roman an exorcism.  And walking down the red carpet with a Pope had more than people just talking. She has fired up all types of religious rights groups and receiving all types of hate mail and tweets. But in typical Nicki Minaj fashion she has this to say to all you haters.

Here Is Why She Walked The Carpet With A Pope:

He is major part of the story and the movie that I’m writing about one of my alter egos. His name is Roman. Basically the religious figure is there because he was called on by Roman’s mom to rehabilitate him.

This Is Why She Chose To Wear The Over The Top Red Hood Versace Outfit:

I wasn’t going to do the red carpet. I was backstage preparing to have my performance outfit and not do a carpet and go and sit down. My people wanted me to do it. I had this amazing robe made for me by Versace sent from Milan. I said, “Oh, my God I have to wear this. They were so generous. They sent me so much stuff  and I was originally going to wear it during the performance, but when I got it, it was a little heavy for the performance. I said, “Hey, it’s only one way to do it and that’s the red carpet.”

Understanding Why She Chose “Roman Holiday” For The Grammy’s:

First of all, The Grammys chose ‘Roman Holiday.’ The producers of the Grammys came into the studio, and they heard ‘Roman Holiday’ and I could not play them another record after they heard that. They went crazy. I could have chosen to do a no-brainer pop song, but I can’t do it anymore. I have to stay true to what I’m doing. Seeing how comfortable I was last night, I was like, “Oh, my God”, this was the best choice because my fan base, the Roman Empire and the Barbz they understand every single thing that I’m doing because Roman was created two years ago. Roman isn’t something new just coming out. I’ve been writing the story for a very long time and yesterday was his coming out party.

Laurianne [Gibson] is such a good friend of mine and she did an amazing job bringing my vision to life. It was very literal if you know who Roman is and what he’s all about but if you don’t know the Roman character then you have to kind of digest it

And Last But Not Least This Is Dedicated To Her Haters:

Were they offended by ‘the devil inside’??? Shut-up & watch the movie bitch! #ThrowsPopcornATtheBackOfYoHeadHoe! lmaoooooooooooooooooooooooo

Not, 2, Not 1…I wish I at least had a point five percentile worth of f*cks to give right now.
