Nicki Minaj released the cover art for her upcoming single “Anaconda” (available Monday July 28th), which was met with adoration from thirsty fans, and ridicule from the mainstream media. Publications like the Huffington Post claimed Nicki “went too far” with her “NSFW” ass-shot, but the Young Money first lady took to Instagram to demonstrate that their criticism was evident of a double standard.
Nicki makes the point that “respected” models have been published while displaying similar assets, with little-to-no push back from the same publications that are currently criticizing her cover art. After reviewing her evidence, we would have to agree that the only real difference between Nicki’s photo and the rest of these are few pigments of melanin, and an SUV’s worth of junk in the trunk.
As more and more hype was generated by the single cover (an exorbitant amount, considering that this isn’t even an album cover), the interweb responded the only way it knows how- with PhotoShop. Anaconda memes and classic art mash-ups have flooded the web all weekend, and we’ve gathered 38 of our favourites.
