Nobody can forget the moment Nicki Minaj dropped her controversial video for Anaconda, and the New York rapper is back with a hot cover for this month’s GQ. Posing with two poodles and some figure-hugging skirts, she dishes on the importance of certain scenes (remember that Drake moment?) in the now infamous visuals. Whilst some may have thought her video was a little too raunchy for our screens, Ms Minaj insists it was about women taking back power and control. Check out some highlights below:
On the “Anaconda” video controversy and its message:
I don’t know what there is to really talk about… I’m being serious. I just see the video as being a normal video. I think the video is about what girls do. Girls love being with other girls, and when you go back to us being younger, we would have slumber parties and we’d be dancing with our friends.
In the video I’m chopping up the banana. Did you realise that? At first I’m being sexual with the banana, and then it’s like, ‘Ha-ha, no.’ Yeah, that was important for us to show in the kitchen scene because it’s always about the female taking back the power, and if you want to be flirty and funny that’s fine, but always keeping the power and the control in everything.
