Nicki dropped an eye-popping selfie onto Instagram
Instagram can be pretty tough on the idea of nudity. Like social media as a whole, they’re a little weird about nipples (particularly if they belong to a woman). This smacks as unfair to most folk. After all, what makes a woman doing it lewd while a man doing it is chill? There’s whole campaigns to allow women to be digitally topless anywhere a man can. And leave it to Nicki Minaj — a rapper who has made her career on light provocation — to walk right up to the line and let her toes dangle over.
The rapper posted a picture of herself to Instagram and it definitely falls in the grey area of the platform’s policy. The photo is several steps beyond suggestive, with Nicki’s nipples being clearly visible through her lace top. To amp up the tantalizng nature of the pic, we have a pair of mystery hands coming in around Nicki’s waist and the “Anaconda” rapper pursing her lips for the camera.
Don’t think is some candid shot. Nicki knew exactly what she was doing with the post, captioning it with a sly tongue-out emoji.
Fans caught a case of the vapors over Nicki’s steamy picture. Compliments and other things of a more unpublsihable nature came streaming in on the pic as it began to spread around the internet.
It’s not the first time that Nicki has stopped a few hearts by stepping out in lace. At the Tidal X 1015 concert in Brooklyn, back in 2016, Nicki turned heads so fast they came unscrewed in a lace Mason Margiela dress. The rapper wore black X’s of tape over her nipples for this particular event, but not much else was left to the imagination as she strolled down the red carpet.
Given these new photos, it’s easy to see why Meek Mill is still hanging his head over losing Onika. In a recent interview, the rapper said that having Nicki step out was definitely “a loss.”
“Of course breaking up with anyone you love is a loss,” the rapper said in an interview with Power 99 in Philadelphia. “Period. Game time. Want me to make up a lie or something? It’s so easy to tell the truth now.”
He also said that he viewed his relationship with Nicki as a “win.” “I got Nicki when I was… like I came up,” he said. “I always wanted Nicki my whole life. I use to talk…remember I had the rap about it. I bagged that. So that was a win of course.”
A New Album
When she’s not slaying, Nicki appears to be working on her new album. She just posted a photo of her D&G sneakers in the studio with the caption: “How bad bitches rock D&G sneaks while recording a classic album. Can’t wait for you to have this.” In addition to showcasing her furry kicks, the post also wished her engineer a happy birthday and promised new music soon.
