I recognize that probably no one on this board likes Nicki Minaj, but I still found this interesting. It all started when Nicki tweeted a single word... And the internet proceeded to lose their fucking mind. It was the top trending topic on Twitter for a while. Nicki then changed her profile to lean into the intrigue. And this isn’t Nicki’s first brush with the leader of the Decepticons - she references Transformers in her verse on Future’s “Transformer”, calling back to Lil Wayne namedropping Optimus Prime on “Transform Ya” with an abusive piece of shit whose name I refuse to mention. Speculation continues to intensify - people have researched Megatron’s canonical backstory as a gladiator for the people and drawn parallels with Nicki. So what does Nicki mean by “Megatron”? Probably nothing as far as Transformers is concerned - some people have speculated its related to her fragrance and fashion lines, other people speculate it’s new music coming out or perhaps even a new album. And it could be any one of those things - as much as I love hip hop I’ve been lukewarm on Nicki as of lately. However... you guys remember Calvin Johnson, the NFL player who called himself “Megatron”? Cause Hasbro does. Now, I’m not saying a partnership with Nicki Minaj and Hasbro is in the works, and I’m certainly not saying that we’ll get a pink repaint of Seige Voyager Megatron... But man that’d be cool. It’s however very unlikely - Calvin Johnson is one thing as the NFL is an “all ages” sort of franchise, but Nicki Minaj DEFINITELY doesn’t tailor her stuff towards children. But what do you guys think? Is this an album she’s making? Is she secretly a Transformers fan? Do you think Hasbro’s lawyers are gonna come gunning for her? I just found this interesting and was curious as to what the fandom thought.
