Vampiress Music Video: Kanye West's "Monster"

Warning: Some of the strong language in the video below might be offensive for some.  Viewer discretion is advised.

produced in 2010

I've got to admit that I was pretty pumped to get to post this one.  There just isn't enough ethnic vamps in media so a change of pace is good.  I guess it's like if you watch enough Girls Gone Wild DVD's you eventually get to the point where you wish the skinny drunk blonde would put her clothes on just to see something different.  

This music video doesn't really have a story to tell but it doesn't need one.  The premise of the song is that each of the performers are monsters in different ways.   The video itself is very dark and artsy looking with a lot of time and effort put into it.  It's a shame the rest of the music genre's today don't put as much time and effort that the big wigs in the rap community does as far as presentation. The background cast consists primarily of zombies and corpses of models with a few vampires sprinkled in but their is one main vamp and she is played by the very talented Nicki Minaj.

 For those that are not a fan of hip hop and not familiar with Nicki she is best described as the "Lady GaGa" of the rap community in that she is multi talented but the talent is sometimes overshadowed by how weird she can be. Also like GaGa she is really hot depending on different factors such as how, when and where you are seeing her.   During Nicki's portion of the song she is dressed in a skin tight all black outfit complete with sword and silver fangs.  While rapping she seems to have someone held hostage which after removing the tarp from the persons head is revealed to be none other than Nicki Minaj (this time in all white with a pink wig).  "Vamp Nicki" teases "hostage Nicki" through out the segment even sitting on her lap at one point.  It's very sexy in an uncomfortably weird sort of way.
