Nicki Minaj Releases Porn Inspired Video


Before the song was even released as a music video, the cover for the Nicki Minaj single “Anaconda” has been censored because of its crass and ugly display of Minaj’s backside. One music critic has already labeled the video “basically softcore porn.” I would actually go further and state that it borders on hardcore as all its imagery is directly descended from porn films; featuring full-on lesbianism, partial to full nakedness, simulated oral sex, and simulated ejaculation; this is not including the filthy expletive laden lyrics. This horrific example of cultural decay marks a bit of a tipping point: where pornographic iconography is fully blending into pop-culture.

  1. I did not see the video but the album cover is a gross imitation of a Lil' Kim cover.

  2. I saw the video, as someone said, is 99% porn and 1% music.
