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!

Judging by the A-list attendees, it’s fairly obvious to figure out this was the party to party to attend in Paris last night as Paris Fashion Week comes to an end today. The dinner party was hosted by V Magazine at Laperouse restaurant and featured everyone from Nikki Minaj to Gigi Hadid (not pictured since she wore a shirt & jeans). I’m sure Kendall was also there, but we didn’t see photos of her. For more photos from the event, check out the set at V Magazine.
Katy Perry obviously went a little overboard—almost to the point where we were left scratching our heads, while Nikki Minaj made her huge rack the focus of her outfit (just like she does at every other event). As For Zayn Malik, he opted for a more literal approach and Solange Knowles looked like she was at the wrong event. I’m very curious as to whether Zayn had to take off his metal arms during dinner? Here’s some video footage of the couple during their grand arrival:
