Nicki Minaj probably prayed for a Grammy win today – but will she be praying for forgiveness tomorrow?
The best new artist nominee – who’s known to shock and go all out on the red carpet – arrived at Sunday’s Grammy Awards in an embellished, nun-like red satin robe, complete with hood – and a man dressed as the Pope on her arm.
It’s a surprisingly demure look for the R&B star, who usually sports crazy makeup, wild wigs and lots of colorful accessories.
But the message the Medusa-printed robe and the semi-sacrilegious date could send may rattle the rafters at a few houses of worship.
