Nicki Minaj has upset Catholic viewers of this years Grammy Awards with her performance of new single 'Roman Holiday'.
Minaj, who walked the red carpet with a Catholic priest in tow, enacted an exorcism as part of her elaborate performance and this heady use of religious imagery has not gone down well with the Catholic League group.
A press release issued by president Bill Donohue to criticise the performance reads: "Whether Minaj is possessed is surely an open question but what is not in doubt is the irresponsibility of The Recording Academy. Never would they allow an artist to insult Judaism or Islam."
Adding: "It's bad enough that Catholics have to fight for their rights vis-a-vis a hostile administration in Washington without also having to fend off attacks in the entertainment industry. The net effect, however, will only embolden Catholics, as well as their friends in other faith communities."
Nicki has explained her performance however, stating that this is the most comfortable she has ever felt with a stage show.
