Star Minaj à trois
IF Kim Kardashian broke the Internet, Nicki Minaj is about to pour vodka all over it and set fire to it. Paper magazine — which published its nearly nude #BreakTheInternet shoot with Kardashian in 2014 — has sought to outdo itself with a winter 2017 cover that makes Kardashian’s look like an issue of Woman’s World. The, er, eye-catching cover shot features the “Anaconda” rapper in three different poses at once, with one of the “Nickis” appearing to be about to perform oral sex on another “Nicki” while a third fondles her breast — all with the cover line, “Minaj à Trois.” The magazine includes a 16page feature shot by famed photographer Ellen von Unwerth. Paper’s creative director Drew Elliot said, “This shoot was ambitious. Imagine having to do three shoots to get one image, and Nicki [leading] the charge.” While Kardashian’s shoot was inspired by the artist Jean-Paul Goude’s work in the 1960s, we’re not sure what art influenced the Minaj cover. Maybe “Caligula” and “Me, Myself and I”?
