Nicki Minaj Laughs Off “Anaconda” Cover Art Criticism, Finds an Admirer in Katy Perry
Nicki Minaj is firing back at her haters.
The 31-year-old rapper took to Twitter on Friday to defend the cover art for her next single “Anaconda,” in which she’s wearing pink g-string and, well, not much else.
While the scandalous shot made waves on the Internet (and even became a trending topic on Twitter), it seems that some are not too pleased with the racy pic, and apparently, Minaj received a flurry of angry tweets and Instagram comments in response to the image.
So naturally, the “Super Bass” beauty shot back on social media, and in typical Minaj fashion, she made sure to let her loyal fans know she doesn’t care what anyone thinks (tweets contain language that may be offensive to some).

Despite the apparent criticism, the “Starships” rapper did receive plenty of positive feedback, and even found an admirer in fellow pop star Katy Perry, who couldn’t help but poke a little fun at the bootylicious pic.
Of course, that wasn’t all Minaj had to say about the backlash. She also posted a series of scandalous Sports Illustrated shots, including the cover for the 2014 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, which sees Chrissy Teigen, Nina Agdal and Lily Aldridge all posing topless.
“Angelic. Acceptable. LOL,” she wrote of the photo, which was followed by a shot of her own cover art with the caption, “UNACCEPTABLE.”
Perhaps Minaj has a point?
Regardless, the provocative pics are nothing new for the songstress, who regularly posts revealing photos on her social media pages.
Case in point? Last month, she shared a series of supersexy shots in which she’s exposing her breasts in a see-through shirt, under which she’s wearing only a star-shaped pair of nipple pasties.
Just another (semi-naked) day in the life of Nicki Minaj!
