While many choose to forgo pants for reasons including comfort and more comfort, Nicki Minaj has found "shirts," also known as "tops," to be severely overrated. Benefits of not wearing a shirt include taking approximately three seconds less to get ready, and three seconds less to get undressed. Ipso facto ergo, Nicki will perform on Saturday Night Live alongside host James Franco, presumably topless.
