Was That Nicki Minaj’s Alter Ego in the Now Classic “Ate the Box” Video?


By now we all know that rapper Nicki Minaj was the disoriented stud who boasted about sleeping with rapper Remy Ma in a now classic viral video on YouTube. That helps to explain Nicki Minaj’s crazy rambling tweets about “alter egos” on her Twitter page.

On her Twitter page, Nicki claimed “Roman” was her “twin sister”. So would we be wrong to assume that it was Nicki’s butch alter ego “Roman” who appeared in this video?

Yesterday, Nicki denied teaming up with Trey Songz on his single “Bottoms Up”. Instead, she said it was her alter ego named Roman Zolanski. If we didn’t already know that Nicki has a few screws loose, we might think she was joking — but she’s serious.

Loyal reader Anthony questions whether Nicki is bipolar. It would certainly seem so judging from the video below.

According to SOHH.com, earlier this month, Minaj said she would allow fans to get more familiar with who she really is when her album drops later this year.

“I’m gonna let the album [introduce my alter ego]. As of now, you’ll know Nicki and you’ll know Roman, my crazy alter ego Roman Zolanski,” said Nicki.

“The album is coming along just spectacular,” Minaj revealed in an interview. “I been doing a lot of work with Swizz [Beatz], and the stuff that we been coming upon is magical. When people hear the album, they’re going to get to know Onika [her birth name is Onika Maraj]. And no one knows Onika. I really didn’t think I would be this excited about the songs that I’m coming up with. I’m really, really proud… I’m gonna let the album [introduce my alter ego]. As of now, you’ll know Nicki and you’ll know Roman, my crazy alter ego Roman Zolanski. But you’ll meet Onika before the year ends.” (MTV)

    I think she is bi-polar, and that nervous tick is a side effect of the lithium she takes to manage her issues. Does she yawn a lot – yawning is a classic sign that she’s on anti-psychotic meds.

    On the flippy, that orange hair is a good Ronald McDonald-esqe (saying ‘esque’ make it feminine) look for her :-D

    I hope she’s not referring to Roman Polanksi…..

    “On 11 March 1977, Polanski was arrested for the sexual assault of a thirteen-year-old, Samantha Geimer, that occurred the day before at the Hollywood home of actor Jack Nicholson.The girl testified before a grand jury that Polanski gave her both champagne and Quaalude, a sedative drug, and despite repeated protests and being asked to stop, he performed oral sex, intercourse and sodomy upon her”

    she must be… :snort:

    Split personality/alter egos are not synonmous with BIPOLAR Mood Disorder. These are two totally different things and people shouldn’t through the term “bipolar” around like its nothing. Its a mental illness.

    I don’t think she has a split personality. I think she’s bipolar or schizophrenic just judging from that video. And people who are bipolar or schizophrenic can believe they have a split personality. So I’m not sure why you say it isn’t possible.

    Exactly or how about come out with a classic album. Most female MCs have at least 1 classic under their belts. Mixtapes for the most part=flippin someone else’s hit and features, well it’s usually just a hot 16. So, can she carry a whole album, song on her own, come up with her own hit?

Yes, I agree that taking the name of a child molestor is crazy just like the other rappers who take names of drug dealers and murderers or Marilyn Manson and his group took the names of serial killers. A lot of folks in entertainment are not all together sane (see Mel Gibson).

    starstatus says:

    I know for a fact this guy or whatever she is is not nicki minaj. I remember the time when this video first came out. Nicki was doing the come up cuz I saw her in an interview right around the same time and she didn’t look like this. Funny how the video came back around now and got connected to her. Lol at gullible people.

    But Nicki minaj is way to feminine to be like this anyway.
    Now is Nicki Minaj crazy sometimes i think so sometimes not. Depends. I feel the same way about Eminem/ slim shady. Tupac had his insane moments too, lauryn hill appeared crazy to some people too depending on who u spoke too and Prince was always weird to me. My point is most of these celebs have a crazy side to them.
