Sadly, instead of owning the moment and admitting that - like Kim Kardashian and J-Lo before her - she rode her prominent backside all the way to the a-list, Nicki is pretending that she just doesn't see what all the fuss is about:
"I think the video was so sexy or crazy," Nicki said when asked about the video's single-day YouTube record. "I didn't expect that. I didn't even expect the picture getting the controversy it got. For the video to break a record, I was like 'What?'"
We have a hard time believing that Nicki didn't think the video would cause a stir.
We have an even harder time believing that she doesn't think the clip is sexy. Maybe she's thinking of the "Anaconda" fart video that some Internet genius blessed us with.
