Frum Jewish girl sings Nicki Minaj song for her friend’s wedding in Yiidish and English

rikki rose
An Ultra-Orthodox Jewish woman, Riki Rose, made a song for her friend in honor of her wedding, which was held on October 25th. Rose’s friend Chavy, married Yitzchok Lebowitz.

The song is a parody from the famous song “Starships” by Nicki Minaj. Rose’s song has some Yiddish and some English lyrics.

It is very surprising that an Ultra-Orthodox Jewish woman risked her reputation by uploading her song to the internet, since in the Ultra-Orthodox Jewish community, Jewish men are not supposed to listen to a singing woman. Ultra-Orthodox Jewish people are also not allowed to listen to non-Jewish music.

If a rabbi in the community will find out of this video that Rose uploaded to the internet, she might be ostracized from the community.

Nonetheless it is fascinating to watch as a young Ultra-Orthodox Jewish woman authored her own lyrics and perfectly carry the tune to a non-Jewish song. It makes great entertainment for all of us.

  3. Actually there are Orthodox Rabbis that hold that recorded female voices are fine for men to listen to (it's considered a musical instrument), just not ok acapella in person. As for listening to non-Jewish music, there is a famous Orthodox male artist who did a parody of this song a while back in English and Yiddish, so she could easily claim she was copying that.
