There's Nicki as the Google logo, Nicki as Spider-Man, Nicki covered up for Drake's sake...it's all good and it all makes us grateful for the Internet, as well as for Nicki's thong-busting butt.
The photo has generated controversy online, with many claiming it's inappropriate for promotional material, but Nicki countered the argument by tweeting pictures like the cover of the latest Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
Her point was that there are many cases in which photos of equally exposed women didn't spark any sort of outrage, simply because they bear less resemblance to a Sir Mix-a-Lot fever dream.
This isn't the first time that the cover art for one of Minaj's singles has generated controversy.
We personally hope Nicki continues pushing the envelope with her cover artwork. In a way, her battle for ass equality and her successful effort to expose the underlying racism surrounding the "Anaconda" controversy has made her a rights crusader in her own time.
