Nicki Minaj's Roman holiday isn't over just yet.
Thursday night, the one-time Out cover girl released the title track from her forthcoming album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. The song's not catchy like "Super Bass," but it does showcase Minaj's ability to spit lines and it reminds us that she's not just a Barbie Doll-type of performance--and not just because she repeats the phrase "Barbie bitch" throughout the track.
One thing the track probably won't do is endear Minaj to the Catholic Church. The rapper has been under fire since her recent performance at the Grammy Awards, where she performed "Roman's Revenge" and "Roman Holiday" in an extravaganza, complete with a scene in a confessional, that brought to mind The Exorcist.
From what we can tell, however, she's not too torn up. A line early in the new song makes light of the matter, saying, "Is it me or did I put these rap bitches on the map again/ You mad cause I'm at the Grammys with the Vatican."
