Fashion Police at the 2012 Grammy Awards: Nicki Minaj arrives with “The Pope”

Nicki Minaj arrives at the Grammy Awards with the Pope

Nicki Minaj continues her attempt to out-Gaga Lady Gaga, and be the most shocking of aaaaalll the shocking pop stars, this time roping in “The Pope” as an accomplice..

We’d imagine Lady Gaga looks at these photos and thinks, “Yeah, whatever, Nicki: try turning up inside a giant egg, or performing covered in blood – then we’ll talk: religion hasn’t been shocking since Madonna beat it to death in the 90s.”

What do you think, though? Brave statement (about…something) or desperate attention seeking?
