Watch the Video for Usher and Nicki Minaj’s “Lil Freak”


No real complaints about this song, but what’s with the frustrating 2010 trend of having to sit through 2-3 minutes of Usher or Ludacris or Robin Thicke or Bobby V before we finally get a Nicki Minaj verse? No doubt the money is phenomenal right now for her but it’d be nice to just skip the part where some incredibly acrobatic video vixen does pretzels around Usher and go straight to the bonkers two-tone wig, absurd eyelashes, tin-foil bustier, and comically enunciated virtuoso verse. That’s why we’re all watching anyway, right? [Miss Info/Vulture]
