I’ve always been a little meh on Nicki Minaj, but today the rapper dropped a ballad that is knocking my socks off. “Pills N Potion” is an uplifting, but not-even-remotely cheesy love song directed at her haters and will be featured on Nicki’s upcoming album The Pink Print. “Swearin’ on the Bible that they love you but they’re no different from all your rivals / but I don’t wish death on ‘em, I just reflect on ‘em,” Minaj raps on the pared-down track, giving fans a taste of what they can expect from her next effort. I LOVE it. Listen below! [Rolling Stone]

Why would you do that, Nicki?

Sure, some people won some awards and such at last night’s Billboard Music Awards and that’s great. But we want to talk about two things: the awesome face Taylor Swift made at Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber, and what everyone wore. Like, it’s kind of shocking how absolutely normal and elegant Nicki Minaj looks, right? She’s positively demure here, in a flattering red gown. What’s happened to the Nicki we once knew?
