Just because Young Money’s Nicki Minaj didn’t win any Grammys last night, doesn’t mean she wasn’t talked about. Quite frankly, her performances was one of the more spoken upon showings, but not necessarily for good reasoning. The highly controversial act of her new song “Roman Holiday” came under much scrutiny, especially from The Catholic League, which issued this statement:

“Perhaps the most vulgar part was the sexual statement that showed a scantily clad female dancer stretching backwards while an altar boy knelt between her legs in prayer. None of this was by accident, and all of it was approved by The Recording Academy, which puts on the Grammys. 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.”

You can check out questionable performance here. Do they have a valid argument?
