Nicki Minaj pulls out all the stops ...

... but maybe she should have put some of those stops back in. Her performance of "Roman Holiday" was preceded by a short parody of "The Exorcist." But it didn't end there. The performance, drenched in Catholic imagery, featured flames, exorcists and a levitating Nicki Minaj. It also featured a bit of a Christmas carol and writhing creatures in nylon bodysuits. At least Audrey Hepburn wasn't there to witness it.
