Unless you were living under a rock yesterday, you probably already know that the new music video for Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé’s collaboration “Feeling Myself” came out. And for those of you who saw it, you know it was pure visual fun—awesome colors, crazy clothing combos, and cheeseburgers galore. (A formula for success if ever there was one.)
We caught up with the woman behind the fashion—stylist Marni Senofonte, whose worked with everyone from Kim Kardashian to Mary J. Blige—to get the insider deets on EVERYTHING that went down.
This video is serious eye candy. Everything is just so fun and powerful and colorful. What was the idea or concept for the shoot?
“The truth of the matter is, it was really last minute. And it was Beyoncé’s idea to go to Coachella and to shoot at Coachella. It was so spur of the moment! But that’s B, that’s her. She’s so spontaneous and it’s just part of her craft—if she likes it or she wants it she goes for it. Honestly, there was no real ‘treatment’ that usually happens. The idea was, you know, ‘let’s go to Coachella.’ It was supposed to feel the way that I hope it does—really good friends, just going and having a good time, and making fun memories. And I scrambled together in two days what we would need and we went over everything, but it was really this idea of, you know, everyone at Coachella looks like a hippie, but I was like, what if the other kind of kids to go Coachella? This is all the clothes that we were wearing. It’s pretty much the urban version of Coachella.”
“It was a total girlfriend vibe. Like ‘You wear this, no you should wear this. Oh no, you look better in that.'”
Was there anything that Nicki or Beyoncé brought to the table in terms of what they wanted to wear or look like?
“You know, some of the clothes were actually B’s. A couple of the bathing suits were hers and the rest we kind of just shipped out and had things made. Again, we had two days, so it was just kind of like, what looks good? What do we want to do? B was so cool. She was kind of like my first assistant on the job: ‘We should wear this, Oh I have this.’ It was awesome. And Nicki–I have to tell you, I was so nervous. Not nervous to work with her, but it’s just generally hard to work with somebody on this type of level for the first time. There’s often things that they don’t want to wear, like, ‘oh, I don’t want to show my arms,’ etc. and because it was so last minute, I wasn’t aware of any of that going in. But she was so open to everything! Nicki and I talked after the video, and she was just like ‘I can’t believe we’re just going to shoot this!’ But that’s the best part about these two, and working with Beyoncé especially—she’s so off the cuff and so down for anything. I worked with her on the 7/11 video as well, and each was really…nothing was predetermined. We’d run and grab clothes, change, figure out what we wanted and then refine the idea. That was it.”

Nicki Minaj showed just how good she is at changing moods.
After some promotion for her recent album The Pinkprint with a performance of her melancholy single “The Night is Still Young,” Minaj went choreography-heavy with a performance of “Hey Mama,” her collaboration with DJ David Guetta. It may have been the star’s most dance-heavy TV performance ever, and—from vocals to choreography—was certainly her most well-rounded. Check out the photos & video below.
