We're not sure what inspired Nicki Minaj's robed red Versace nun's habit and Rent-a-Pope plus one at the 2012 Grammy Awards, but after making a mockery of the red carpet, Minaj went on to anger the Catholic League even more with her "Exorcism of Emily Rose" inspired performance. Stained glass, dancing monks and choir boys, there was even a moment where Minaj levitated through the air as she rapped-sung (or spoke in tongues?) her way through "Roman Holiday." We can only imagine she was possessed by one of her many, many alter-egos, while viewers were just left confused by the meaning of it all.
