Nicki Minaj’s “Your Love” Video: Too Much Fake Swordfighting, Too Few Goofy Faces


There are quite a few goofy faces, it’s true, and the long shots, which make her look like an action figure or a candy bar or something, have a strange poignance. But overall “Your Love” just isn’t wacky enough for my tastes. Given its enormous success, though, hopefully it’s a Trojan Horse for just the craziest shit you ever saw come November. Also: I bet they could’ve gotten Annie Lennox to do a cameo here if they’d asked nicely.
