How vengeful will Nicki Minaj’s sequel to “Roman’s Revenge” be? What precisely is being reloaded? From the looks of the album cover, a paintball gun. Check this out:
We like this! In fact, we like this a lot. It’s Very stylized. Very pastel-warrior. Very battle-Barbie. Very un-Grammy Vatican bait, but also very un-”Starships.” (If it were like “Starships,” all those colors would have their saturations cranked up to 255 each, and the album art would probably be pulsing or something.) Dozens of crayons probably sacrificed their corpses to make this cover happen, and for this we are thankful. The album’s out April 3.
