The rapper diva's attempts to stay in the spotlight trigger numerous controversies. The latest news reveal that Nicki Minaj is slammed for mocking religion in her Grammy performance by the Catholic League. Find out more details about this celeb scandal.
The Catholic League decided to take action against the
anti-religious behavior of the rapper diva. We find out from the
latest celebrity gossips that Nicki Minaj is slammed for
mocking the Catholic Church in her Grammy performance in which she
used the theme of a 'live exorcism' to shock the audience and the
media. First Nicki Minaj appeared on the red carpet with a strange
man dressed as The Pope.
According to the diva, who revealed in Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show that the controversial show had in the central role her alter ego Roman Zolanski, “I had this vision for Roman for him to be sort of exorcised. People around him tell him he's not good enough because he's not normal and he's not blending in with the Average Joe.”
The mock-religious show was undoubtedly a complex performance. The fans could watch a Catholic confession sesh, signs of demonic possession, a levitation scene and a few dancing monks. Nicki also added that, “The people around (Roman) him are afraid because they've never seen anything like him. He wanted to show that not only is he amazing...But he's never going to change. He's never going to be exorcised,[...]Even when they throw the holy water on him, he still rises above.”
The Catholic League decided to react to the offensive
performance. President, Bill Donohue claimed that, “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[...] It's bad enough
that Catholics have to fight for their rights vis-a-vis a hostile
administration in Washington without also having to fend off
attacks in the entertainment industry,[...] The net effect,
however, will only embolden Catholics, as well as their friends in
other faith communities.”
The President of the League also wrote on their website that, “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.” Nicki Minaj offered a simple answer to all the accusations, “the most comfortable I've ever been onstage”.
