'Roman Holiday' memes are breaking the internet and, honestly, they're as funny as Nicki Minaj herself.

It's no secret that Nicki Minaj is a meme queen. Ever since the start of her career, Nicki has captured people's attention with her wicked sense of humour and undeniable talent. Her iconic verses and hilarious antics never fail to entertain and impress us. With that in mind, it's no surprise that she regularly inspires viral memes. From 'TO FREEDOM!' to Tom Holland, Nicki is always at the forefront of meme culture and now her 2012 hit 'Roman Holiday' has become a meme.

Longterm fans of Nicki will be well aware of 'Roman Holiday'. The ambitious song initially divided critics upon its release but it's since become a fan favourite thanks to Nicki's animated performance and rapid fire verses. Not only that but it also sees Nicki channel her gay alter-ego Roman Zolanski and interpolate 'O Come All Yee Faithful', as she raps about being sent to conversion therapy. It's bonkers, ballsy and ultimately brilliant.

If that weren't enough, Nicki debuted the song at the Grammys with a priest and acted out an exorcism on stage. It was the first time a female rapper ever performed a solo song on the Grammys stage. Given how manic the song is, it's the perfect template for any meme. The 'Roman Holiday' memes have appeared here and there on social media for months but just recently they went viral and now they're everywhere.

You just speed up a video of your choosing and play the song in the background or create something new.
