Nicki Minaj: Anaconda

So earlier today I read on digital spy (a popular entertainment website in the UK) about Nicki Minaj's new video.

http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/music/ne...oNBBWjSA21dUPC

In a nutshell the article comprises of a rapper from the eighties stating that he thinks Nicki Minaj didn't need to make such a video due to her success.

In curiosity I clicked on the vid and I was genuinely shocked.

So first of all, I don't think the song is particularly good (in fact I think it's terrible), but my feelings on the song are minor compared to my thoughts about the video



I did some quick research on her wikipedia page after watching it and came across an interesting interview she did in her earlier career.

Minaj has worked hard to establish her own voice, writing all her own material and not leaning on sex appeal. “I made a conscious decision to try to tone down the sexiness,” she says. “I want people—especially young girls—to know that in life, nothing is going to be based on sex appeal. You’ve got to have something else to go with that.”

http://www.interviewmagazine.com/music/nicki-minaj/#_

So really the question is? Is this a bad thing? Am I (and Minaj's detractors) just interfering old prudes who should mind our own business and let her express herself as an artist and let her fans enjoy her music?

Or, is this an example of style over substance, of selling sex over any sort of artistry and a really scary message to show to young girls who idolise Minaj?

I think I'd be less bothered by it if the song was any good tbh.

I'm genuinely curious as to other peoples opinions.

It really is, hence the need for tits and ass EVERYWHERE to try and cover for it.

The sad thing is that we willingly come to expect this kind of pornification from music and pop culture nowadays.

Re: Nicki Minaj: Anaconda

does anyone ever post anything positive on this forum? It seems like all threads here are made to judge people and ridicule them.

Re: Nicki Minaj: Anaconda

I haven't looked at the video yet (I will later, not now when I'm at work).

Nicki's songs are so up and down. For every "Pills and Potions" and "Right thru me" she comes up with total garbage like this and "stupid hoe". Eminem would be embarrassed putting out songs like this. I want to like her music but she makes it difficult with dogshit like this
