Sir Mix-A-Lot's Got Nicki Minaj's Back — What One Word Did He Use To Describe Her Music Video For Anaconda?!
That's all Sir Mix-a-Lot had to say after seeing Nicki Minaj's new music video for Anaconda!
The song, with a music video that just came out two days ago and already has 25.5 million hits on YouTube, heavily samples Sir Mix-a-Lot's 1992 smash hit Baby Got Back, so it's only natural that he'd form an opinion.
We bet Nicki was pretty nervous about how the 51-year-old rapper was going to take this updated version of his song — especially since it won a Grammy when it first came out 22 years ago!
Well, Nicki needn't worry any longer, because Sir Mix-a-Lot took to Twitter to share his praise for the current queen of rap, saying:
Hats Off To Pharrell's Grammys Hat! The Headpiece Is SO Famous, It's Getting Its Own Museum Exhibit!
First the hat was all the buzz on social media for weeks, then it helped Pharrell win "Hat Person Of The Year", next it took on the red carpet at the BRIT Awards as its own entity, and finally Arby's bought it for $44,100.
And now, it's set to have its own stinkin' museum exhibit at the Newseum!!
The incredible Vivienne Westwood piece has come so far!
An Arby's rep explained why they felt the hat belonged in a museum, saying:
Lorde Is Hand Picking The ENTIRE The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 Soundtrack & That's Not Even The Biggest News!
This is insane!
Oh yeah, she's also going to be singing the lead single for the film/CD as well!
May the odds be ever in her favor.
Seriously! Not only is the 17-year-old going to have to record a brand new song, she's also going to have to fill an entire album with songs that fit the tone/plot of the movie.
The Grammy Award-winning singer opened up about the challenge, saying:
Taylor Swift knows who's boss!
After Taylor served Ed some of her famous apple pie (seriously, where does girl find the time?!), the two got into a friendly argument about a chord in the song.
Ed said of the incident:
All three ladies teased crowds in similar looks by wearing risqué sheer white dresses, but we wanna know…
