1. It Wasn't What You'd Expect
Giving the "Feeling Myself" title, the song's sexual references and it's harder-than-softer style, one might have expected a dark and tough video with plenty of skin and scenes to be blurred or edited out. In a pleasantly surprising twist, Minaj and King Bey went for bright, colorful, fun, silly, and hilarious BFF-ery that we mortals can merely fantasize about. If only we could look that cool being that corny. I loved the candid and unrehearsed feel; though it would've been nice to have a little more going on in some shots besides them playing in their hair and caressing their curves.
2. "It's Dope, Nicki!"
At the beginning of the video, we get set footage of them doing the song's opening lines outside of the Coachella road sign. What cracks me up is that the director yells "It's dope, Nicki!" even though she's just cutely posing while Beyoncé is the one working the camera. I'm sure it was a status update, but it was still a funny irony.
3. Is That Bubblicious Gum??!
I can't get over how freakin' cute OBeyKa's (I could call them NickOncé, but that's too obvious) candy exchange was. It was like a scene straight off the playground. Nicki hungrily chomps into a sweet treat that Beyoncé's eyes glimmer with hope is either Bubblicious gum or Now and Later candy. In child-like tones, Nicki confirms it's the latter and asks Bey if she wants some, to which she instantly replies "Yeah." Adorbs. I need a gif.
