Nicki Minaj Grammy Performance Deemed "Vulgar" By Catholic League

by at . Comments

And... there it is.

As expected, the Catholic League has issued a statement regarding Nicki Minaj's controversial performance of "Roman Holiday" at the Grammy Awards Sunday night, which featured choir boys, bishops, holy water, faux possessions, levitation and a confessional.

"Nicki Minaj, fresh off looking like a fool with Madonna at the Super Bowl, showed up last night on the red carpet at the Grammys with a guy dressed like the pope. This was just a prelude of what was to come," wrote Catholic League President Bill Donahue, adding:

"Perhaps the most vulgar part was the sexual statement that showed a scantily clad female dancer stretching backwards while an altar boy knelt between her legs in prayer. Finally, 'Come All Ye Faithful' was sung while a man posing as a bishop walked on stage; Minaj was shown levitating."

Donahue concluded by calling out the Grammys themselves, writing:

"Whether Minaj is possessed is surely an open question, but what is not in doubt is the irresponsibility of The Recording Academy. Never would they allow an artist to insult Judaism or Islam."

What is Nicki's defense of her act? She told Ryan Seacrest it was all about an alter ego named Roman. Naturally.

"I had this vision for Roman, for him to be exorcised, but people around him telling him he's not good enough, that he's not normal, he's not fitting in with the average Joe," Nicki explained. "He wanted to show that not only is he amazing and confident, but he's never going to be exorcised and when they throw the holy water on him, he rises above it."

Well... okay then.

Offending Catholics has become the last "acceptable" prejudice it seems. If she had insulted any other denomination there could have even been riots and a fatwa on her head. Minaj needs to be locked in a fart chamber.
