Nicki Minaj’s ‘Pills N Potions’ Video Will Feature Pasties, Moschino, And More

Nicki Minaj’s “Pills N Potions” video is coming, y’all. She just posted a 45-second teaser on YouTube and, dang, we have a lot to look forward to. In under a minute we’re treated to seven looks–I mean, how many could the full video possibly have, 40? We’ll find out on Monday when the full thing drops, but until then, we can discuss what’s in store.

First up is a sheer white shirt, nude stiletto nails, and an e-cigarette (don’t try at home, kids). Also, because her eyes are closed, you get a full sense of just how expertly her eyeliner is applied. The application process deserves a video of its own (hint hint, Nicki).

Her Minajesty managed a way to fit in her fave accessory: pasties!

Next is a feathery/furry all-black ensemble, which she pairs with a long, undone braid. I’m confused if the chair she’s sitting on is made from feathers, or if she has a vest on. Also, are those lace OTK boots? Either way, I am very into this look. The entire video could be her sitting here like this and I’d watch it.

The subdued Nicki from the past few months is in full-force in this video. Can we all take a minute to appreciate how gorgeous her skin looks? Wow. Between her light-pink eye shadow and lipstick, subtle gold jewelry, and casual updo, this is perhaps the most low-key we’ve ever seen Nicki.

She then manages to cry waterfalls of silver without messing up her eyeliner. That takes serious skill(s). Pro tip: Covering your undereye area with ~sparkle~ is a great dark-circle camouflage.

It’s after Memorial Day, which means white on white is totally fair game. JK, any fashion “rules” in existence were meant to be broken anyway, but Nicki pairs a sleeveless white shirt with, um, cargo shorts. The Game stands shirtless with his back to her–I’m pretty sure he does not have pasties on. #freethenipple

The final look from the teaser is a riff on the single artwork she’s been teasing on Instagram for the past month. She has on the same white bunny ears, but she’s swapped her simple white tank for a SpongeBob SquarePants jacket from Moschino’s Fall 2014 collection.

IDK if it’s winter or summer in this video (and I’m all about dressing appropriately for the weather), but I don’t even care, because I’m too excited for the full thing to drop on Monday.
