Catholics Are Not Happy With Nicki Minaj

5 years ago

The Catholic League is not happy with Nicki Minaj Grammy performance.
On the Grammy awards, Nicki performed the song "Roman Holiday" and the theme of the performance was the "Exorcism of Roman", which payed a little bit of tribute to the movie "The Exorcist" (at least it seemed that way to me) and the performance starts with Nicki confessing to a priest and then switch to a movie where she is possed and after that the performance start with dancers in priest costumes and impling that they were performing an exorcism. Also, Nicki Minaj arrived at the show with a man dressed in a similar way as the Pope.

Now all this (as expected) didn`t fly well with the Catholic League, and im surprised that more religious communities aren`t talking about it because as soon as i saw the performance i thought that there would be a lot of religious talk about it. Here is what they said in a press release (quoted from the article link at the end) :

""Whether Minaj is possessed is surely an open question, but what is not in doubt is the irresponsibility of The Recording Academy" ; Never would they allow an artist to insult Judaism or Islam." ;
"It`s bad enough that Catholics have to fight for their rights vis-a-vis a hostile administration in Washington without also having to fend off attacks in the entertainment industry,"

Now i think this is just an overreaction to the performance and i didn`t saw it as offensive (but then again, im not religious) and don`t really see how it would be since its not a direct offense or blast to the religion but this is not the first time i have read about religious groups targeting performances or music videos that have even a slight little bit of religious reference.

<strong>What do you think? Do you think the performance was offensive and the Catholic League has a reason to be angry or do you think it wasn`t offensive and meant as an offense to religion? Did you saw the performance?</strong>
