Brooklyn rapper Fabolous is the latest celebrity to weigh-in on the interest Young Money’s Nicki Minaj sparked with the release of her bottom-baring “Anaconda” single cover art. #azztounding
In Fab’s perspective, Minaj’s new cover art could represent one of her most iconic poses.
“I did,” Fab said when asked if he had seen the “Anaconda” cover art. “There was no way of escaping that on your Instagram timeline. I thought it was cool. I thought it was her 2014 way of doing her Lil’ Kim, not saying she was trying to be Lil’ Kim, but like when Lil’ Kim did the  pose, the Hardcore pose. This is just kinda like Nicki’s pose now that stirs up that.” (MTV)
Nicki broke news about her “Anaconda” single’s release delay last weekend.
“My darlingz, I’ve pushed the release of Anaconda to next week, Monday 8/4. I promise you will understand why before the week is out. Loveeeeeeee uuuuuu,” Minaj captioned to a photo of herself July 27. (Nicki Minaj’s Instagram)
Last week, Minaj resorted to dealing with some critics going after her neck over a steamy “Anaconda” single cover art reveal.
The rap diva took to Instagram to post a series of photos of models with their butts to the camera to illustrate the double standards in beauty. She wrote “acceptable” next to racy images of Kate Upton and Nina Agdal posing in swimsuits. “Angelic. Acceptable. Lol,” she said of a Sports Illustrated cover with Agdal, Lily Aldridge, and Chrissy Teigen. To make her point, she then reposted her “Anaconda” cover art, which shows her squatting down in a G-string. She captioned the risqué photo “UNACCEPTABLE.” (Rap-Up)
R&B singer John Legend‘s model wife Chrissy Teigen also felt the wrath of Nicki’s fans.
Some of Nicki’s Barbz went on the attack, hurling insults at Teigen. “Nicki Minaj gets King magazine covers & @chrissyteigen can only get sports illustrated she a bum hoe,” tweeted one. “I just landed and I have a nick minaj fans going absolutely batsh*t on me. No idea why,” wrote Teigen. (Rap-Up)
