Music star Nicki Minaj broke the internet on Tuesday evening (Nov. 14), when she tweeted a grainy NSFW video. In the 40-second clip, the Young Money Queen is seen caressing her body and at one point licks her breasts. Many questioned where the video was for, questioning what Minaj had planned. Hours later, Minaj revealed she’s the cover star of PAPER Magazine’s upcoming “Break the Internet” issue.
The video clip was from the provocative cover shoot, where clones of Nicki Minaj grace the sexy cover. The highlight of the photo is the Queens native seated topless, while wearing small pasties on her breasts.
Break the Internet is all about the big idea, the word, the image. It came to me one day that ‘Minaj à trois’ had never been done. HOW? We have seen different versions of Nicki, from high fashion to seductive to in-your-face and eye-catching all at the same time. But we had never seen all of these together — and now we have the chance, thanks to our cover shoot with the rap star and Ellen von Unwerth. Welcome to Break the Internet.
Photographed by by Ellen von Unwerth, the full cover story arrives on Wednesday with the magazine available in newsstands nationwide on Nov. 28.
