Well, that certainly explains the theatrics.
Nicki Minaj's performance at the Grammys on Sunday, which centered on the "exorcism" of her alter-ego, Roman, left many viewers either disoriented, turned off or some combination of the two.
Between the religious overtones and overall oddness of Minaj's set, she didn't earn high marks from critics - but the rapper told reporters at an event for MAC's Viva Glam make-up line that her critics just didn't understand.
"I don't know, what is the big issue?" the rapper said, according to Entertainment Weekly. "You know how people write plays and movies? That's what I did. I wrote that and I gave the world a tiny little preview of what's to come. And I have to perform it on the set in which the movie would be, right?"
For some reason, we're not sure the Catholic League would agree....
