Nicki Minaj: Starships Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Song Released: 2012
Let's go get away
They say, what are they gonna say?
Have a drink, click, found the Bud Light
Bad Bitches like me, is hard to come by
The Partron, on, let's go get it on
The zone, on, yes I'm in the zone

I personally think starships are probably E-pills (MDMA, etc). And by "meant to fly", she is refering to taking them and getting high. I think the chorus ultimately refers to partying (at a club) and the "lets do this one more time" probably means popping another pill, which then segways into the "we're higher than a motherlover" and techno-ish breakdown. I would put money on this being the meaning

You are extremely gullible if you believe this song has any other meaning besides being at a party and getting high.
Just read the lyrics, she is outright saying that she is at a club and she is going to blow her money away (reason why she wont be able to pay her rent).
She is starting with drinks and moves on to drugs. Doing it one more time is for taking another pill, to me it is ecstasy but it could be something else. There is alot of "rave" feel to her party and that is probably choice numero uno at raves.(or at least used to be)
The only connection between this song and starships is the fact they are "high" in the sky, unless starship became a name for an old or new drug that i am not aware of :P
I wouldnt say most artists hide the meaning of their songs because they are so god damn obvious now, but they just put a thin cover over it so it can be played on radio stations during the day and not banned.
Another prime example of the garbage that is played on radio stations now adays... at least it is catchy :P

As far as I can see, none of you have looked farther then "just for partying, dancing, getting high and havings sex" as the reason why one may end up at a club with a eurodance styled rave going on.
Did any of you consider that something very bad must've happened for the person to go to a club to blow all their money for alcohol and drugs, something so bad, that at this point they really don't care with whom they're having intercourse with, as long as that constant high (may that be artifical or natural) helps them to forget that tragic event?
Only because something comes across as happy-go-lucky, and funny even, doesn't mean it actually is.

It has a lot of bad thing in it.e.g- references to sex, drugs and partying. However, I like the altered versions, like Mike Tompkins one with the pitch perfect cast and a bunch of home videos, as it sounds good and has most of the bad stuff taken out

I think this song is all about partying and having a lot of fun. As u read the lyrics you see that she is at the beach, having some drinks and about to move on to drugs,,
this is what this song STARSHIPS is all about

If you don't want to read about my religious views, don't read further. At first I thought it was about following your dreams. How naive of me. While I don't think it's purposely Illuminati, I believe it's an immoral song and that the behavior and lifestyle it advocates is wrong, and no, God doesn't like this. I'm disgusted that this is popular, and even more so that it's played so frequently on the radio.
Bottom line, it's about sex, drinking, and probably drugs, at a nasty party.
Sidenote: just because someone is an immoral partier who has it good with the media, doesn't mean they're illuminati.

I disagree that this song is just about getting high. It's obviously also about copious amounts of anonymous sex.
anonymous Apr 18th, 2013 4:58pm report
Follow you dreams, don't be shy, and hang out at clubs a lot.
BTW I don't get it when people say "illuminati" I know what it is but WTHeck does this song have to do with the illuminati? My conclusion is that people make random assumptions and like being silly........
me 2 :D

"Starships were meant to fly"-
I guess nicki is referring to shy people as starships. So then shy people are meant to show what they got and let their inner-self shine as a talented human being.
"Hands up and touch the sky"-
nicki is telling you to put your hands up and she will help you touch the sky. So I guess that a lot of people find nicki minaj as an inspiration and that they should work hard and follow their dreams, sorta like what nicki did.

This song has no meaning at all. It's just about getting high and partying. But isn't that (for the most part) what all the popular music is about? Like seriously there are so many songs out there that actually mean something. And then people wonder why we(teens) do bad things. It's what the media is setting us to think is 'cool'. Just like smoking back then, when they used to put a hot celebrity smoking cigarettes just so you'd thing it was cool. sorry i know this isn't a proper interpretation but i just had to rant. Hope you all don't mind.

I hate religuous people. i came here to read about Nicki Minaj not get a damn sermon on the bible and where everybody but christians are going.

Coke heads refer to using cocaine as blasting off, hence the starship reference.

Getting higher than a motherf***er. That's it.

I Agree With The Illuminati Comment. I Encourage Everyone Do Some Research On It. These Song And Videos Are Meant To Fill Your Head With Drugs And Sex and Most Importantly Leading You Away From God.
