Ever since Lady Gaga came on the scene with her bizarre masks, tall hats and concept outfits, everyone thinks looking like an idiot on the red carpet is a sign of artistic integrity.
Nicki Minaj has a horrible case of Gaga-itis. (Which is maybe why she's wearing a surgical mask?) Just being weird for weird's sake. It's difficult to know where her body starts and her trinkets end. More than anything, though, she very reminiscent of ANTM Cycle 3 when the girls are in Japan and Tyra challenges them to dress like Harajuku girls and the contestants quickly realize that this just means to looks as ridiculous and candy-coated as possible.
