Crazy 101

Just when you think the world can't get any crazier... *enters Nicki Minaj*...... Most of us are still trying to wrap our heads around Lady Gaga and her unworldly style, but now every time we turn on our TVs we have to deal with Nicki Minaj saying things that we barely understand. Not for lack of not making sense (although that can be up for debate) but because her raps are just out of this world.

*side-note* not that I am complaining. In the beginning I may have been like uhmmmmm question mark, question mark, question mark, but now I have nothing but love for that girl.

But as far as crazy is concerned, her and Lady Gaga are on the fast track to prove who can be the craziest, and although Gaga is winning by a million and six votes Minaj is not out of the race. In an interview with OUT magazine she said herself "I wanna be innovative, I wanna stand out too."

If Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj have taught us anything, it's that crazy is in fashion, if you (especially in the music biz) are still wearing jeans and a T-shirt or are singing songs where no one dies in a video, you are sooo normal 2000 and eight.

Crazy 101

1. Wear crazy outfits

So we know that Gaga has established herself as Queen of crazy town, mostly because of her crazy outfits, from the bubble suit, to the robot outfit to (do I even need to mention) the meat dress, we have no idea what Gaga will think up next to have us saying "oh my gosh", but what ever it is we are sure to look like this:

However as I said before Nicki Minaj is quicky sneaking up on Lady Gaga's throne.

Need I say more? I think not.

2. Have an alter ego

The thing with crazy people is this, they do and say crazy things and get away with it beacuse they have an alter ego to blame it on, like "I'm actually really shy, sweet and innocent but when [insert name] takes over it's a whole different ball game"
Nicki Minaj has "Roman", a boy, who comes out when she is wearing her pink, purple, green barbie hair, and Lady Gag Gag Gaga, also has a boy "Jo Calderone", who comes out....... all the time.

3. Have weird facial expressions

No matter what Gaga is dressed up as, who she is with, where she is, she always seems to have a different facial expression.
Nicki Minaj is also known for her crazy eye movement and weird facial expressions, nothing says "hi my name is crazy" more than:


At the end of the day why we love Gaga and Nicki may not only be because they are different but also because without denying it they are both successful music artists, they are good at what they do love what they do and we love them for it. So I applaud them.... for making different cool.
