Nicki Minaj was a one woman band at last night's MTV EMAs in Scotland. The host, performer, and nominee had a total of eight outfit changes, so even those bored with her excessive cursing had something interesting to look at. Nicki first hit the stage in a sparkly bra and dramatic skirt with a 14-foot train that appeared to defy gravity, and finished the night in a sparkly mini with matching shoes.

Minaj putted into a butt while wearing Alexander Wang spring 2015. This was not your average mini golf. She also attempted a British accent and rapped in a romantic red mini dress.

She opted for her risqué version of black twice during the awards, jazzing her mini dress up with a green blazer.

Nicki accepted the award for Best Hip Hop Act in a sheer white mini dress, and performed in an outfit that doubled as an optical illusion.
