Paper Magazine Cover: Nikki Minaj Resorts To Shock And Awe In Order To Stay Relevant
You’ll have to visit Paper Magazine’s website in order to get the full scoop, but judging by the magazine’s latest cover, I feel a little embarrassed for Nikki Minaj. Can you just imagine the kind questions and comments Nikki Minaj’s various family members will have when meeting up for the holidays? Then again, if Nikki is picking up the expensive tabs at various high-end ski resorts or other winter vacations spots, I feel like the comments will be generally positive. With that said, what would compel someone to do such a shoot anyway? It’s like agreeing to get a giant penis tattoo on your face–except you can’t ever get rid of it regardless of how hard you tried to scrub the Internet.
Paper Magazine’s photog’s pitch: “Nikki, I hope you’re sitting down b/c I have a great idea for our winter 2017 cover! It’s not going to be just one or two of you, but a total of three Nikki Minajes on the cover! Nikki #1 will be sitting in a chair between the other two Nikkies. One Nikki will be groping a boob while the other will be on her knees pretending to lick your cooch! Tell me how you love it!!”
[Awkward silence lasting 10 seconds]
Paper Magazine’s photog’s pitch: “Nikki, you still there? Seems like we might have a bad connection.”
Nikki Minaj’s response: [Fill in the blank.]
Well, she obviously went through it, but I’m going to give Nikki the benefit of the doubt and assume it took a little convincing before she agreed to the cover!
