Nicki Minaj’s Appearance In Katy Perry’s “Swish Swish” Video Is Everyone’s Favorite Part, As It Should Be

Share

Katy Perry's music video for "Swish Swish" is finally here. Yes, there are a ton of celebrities in it. Yes, it's ridiculously goofy, but when doesn't Perry embrace her comedic side? Yes, the video gives off Space Jam vibes. As exciting as all of that may be, Perry is actually overshadowed. In no surprise whatsoever, everyone is loving Nicki Minaj in "Swish Swish".

If you haven't watched the video yet, prepare yourselves to become a bit annoyed with the over-the-top silliness. However, be sure to stick around, because at the 3:47 mark Minaj appears, where she not only raps her part of the song, but shows off her fierceness. Never has Minaj looked so good. From her makeup to her hair to her attire to her badassness, the 34-year-old is on fire. Unlike the rest of the video, she doesn't need unnecessary shenanigans. Minaj just stands in the middle of a basketball court and does her thing as the halftime show. She also hilariously says to the singer, "Get it together, Katy." She is basically saying what most everyone else is thinking.

Pretty much anyone who's taken six minutes out of their life to watch it agrees that Minaj makes "Swish Swish" enjoyable. Many people have even tweeted their overall distaste for the video, all while taking the time to commend Minaj.
