Nicki Minaj’s new single “Anaconda” has already become a worldwide phenomenon and it hasn’t even been released yet.
The track has already reached the #1 spot on iTunes due to its pre-orders, and all the credit is given to its must-see artwork, which depicts Nicki squatting and displaying her “assets” in full glory.
Nicki is hardly the first female rap act to promote her music with a racy photo but seeing that she currently resides at the top of Hip-Hop food chain, the criticisms tend to come in heavy.
To prove her point, she gathered up images from the last Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover, which featured models Chrissy Teigen, Kate Upton and Nina Agdal in equally provocative but more socially accepted poses.
“Angelic. Acceptable. Lol,” The Pink Print author said in one of the captions. “Unacceptable,” she said when referring to her own artwork.
Some of Nicki’s most passionate fans took that has a cue to attack John Legend’s wife, who was blindsided by the disses.
“I just landed, and I have Nicki Minaj fans going absolutely batsh*t on me,” Teigen wrote on Twitter. “No idea why … Landed, saw she posted our cover, called our asses acceptable. Which I took as a compliment, as I know I have no ass,” she continued.
Shade or no shade, it just gave everybody a reason to dive back into the thirst trap resort. Take a look at the pictures Nicki used to respond to the double standard in the gallery below.
