Save for Nicki Minaj, of course (and probably a few others), whose new video for her latest single, "Starships" (from her new album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded) is a colorful, frenetic hodgepodge of WTF.

Nicki Minaj’s video for "Starships" is basically just a collection of random shit.
What’d you think of the video?
