VMA awards red carpet

Nicki Minaj was super excited to be nominated twice at MTV's 2011 Video Music Awards, and she showed that excitement through her brightly colored ensemble and ... doctor's mask?!?

We guess somebody has to try to out-shock us after Lady Gaga. Minaj wore a geometric skirt, electric-colored hair and a decorated mask at the awards show.

At the show, Britney Spears praised Minaj, who opened up for Spears on her Femme Fatale tour this year.

What do you think of her look?
