It was said that the premiere of “Stupid Hoe” on Vevo clocked 4.8 million views, the highest single-video VEVO number in 24 hours ever!
It debuted at no. 81 of Billboard Hot 100.
The video begins with a close-up of Minaj’s mouth syncing the words of the song as the background and color of her lips change to the song beat. Scenes of dancers jump roping with Minaj’s and Hype Williams’ name are spastically interlaced into the scene. Minaj is than shown flexibly pulling her leg over the back of her head as she begins the song in extreme blue eye make-up. Minaj is than shown sitting in a hot pink Barbie-mobile, noticeably avoiding eye-contact with the camera. As the song chorus begins, continuous spastic slips are again interlaced into each other, featuring Minaj angrily growling at the camera and a plastic doll with a more than voluptuous figure. Adorned in pink attire, Minaj continues to angrily rap the songs lyrics in pink wigs including a curly banged style, and a tight ponytail. As the second verse starts, a leopard is shown in a cage which later transforms into Minaj, also in the cage. To coincide with Minaj’s transformation, she is adorned in “huge fake eyelashes.” As Minaj continuously transforms back and forth between a large predator cat and back into herself she strikes advanced yoga poses. As the video ends, Minaj is seen adorned in child-like clothing while standing on an over sized pink chair. As the camera pans closer to Minaj, her eyes begin to grow in an animated way, referencing Lady Gaga in “Bad Romance”. Sarah Bull noted that Minaj takes inspiration from Bratz dolls in the scene. As the video ends, the clip spastically shows a “Superbowl 2012” ad and closes with Minaj siting in the cage calmly after finishing an eccentric dance.
