Nicki Minaj opened with menacing rhymes on the back of a motorcycle at the 2014 BET Awards, but that lasted all of 30 seconds. Then came tambourines and a slow bass line for her new single “Pill N Potions.”

Contortionists, bunny rabbits, giant mushrooms all decorated her stage, making for a trippy showing. For such a heartfelt love song, it was kind of a distraction. Still, Nicki was solid. And sexy, in an all black ‘fit, highlighted by lace tights and knee-high matching sandals.
