Nicki Minaj has just unveiled her cover artwork for new single “Anaconda.” Ms. Onika shared the very hot and steamy single art, Thursday morning, to announce, “7/28 #ANACONDA on iTunes.”
Although Nicki has posed “spread-eagle” before, she’s previously opted out of doing so for fear of not being taken seriously as a rapper and being seen as another overtly sexy female rapper. Well, it seems, that faze has passed. And, Nicki has long proven her skill-set as an MC and as one of the most influential and dominating female rappers of our time.
With that being said, the new single will be featured on Minaj’s upcoming and highly anticipated album ‘The Pink Print.’
Over the weekend, Nicki Minaj sparked rumored of a feud between herself and fellow rapstress Iggy Azalea during her acceptance speech during the annual 2014 BET Awards.
While accepting her award for Best Female Rapper Nicki stated, “What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is, that when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it.”
“No, no, no shade. No, no, no shade,” she quickly added.
But, unfortunately for the rapper, many took her statements to be a jab at the Australian rapstress. After dominating the Billboard Charts with two recent singles, Iggy seems to be Nicki’s only competition these days.
To the surprise of no one, Nicki Minaj won for the Best Female Hip Hop Artist, Sunday night, at the annual BET Awards show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. In fact, the rapper has won the award for this category four years in a row. But, what was surprising was Nicki’s bizarre acceptance speech.
The rapstress threw some shade, although she insisted she wasn’t trying to, by stating that she writes all her own lyrics and wanted to “thank” BET for supporting authenticity or artists that are authentic. Many felt the jab was intended for Australian rapper, Iggy Azalea.
Minaj then went on to discuss her near death experience and not wanting to call an ambulance out of fear that she would be on popular breaking news celebrity site TMZ.
Watch the bizarre speech and share your thoughts below.
For her “Pills and Potions” official visual, rapstress Nicki Minaj enlisted rapper The Game to be her leading man. Under the above image, she shared with fans on social media, Nicki writes, “Love is WAR.” Do you agree?

We wonder who enjoyed this more, Drake for being straddled or was Nicki Minaj enjoying the ride? Lol.
Nonetheless, Nicki Minaj was among the list of headliners for the annual 2014 Hot 97 Summer Jam at the Metlife Stadium in New Jersey, Sunday night.
She was joined by her Young Money mentor and comrade, Lil Wayne and Drake. Nicki performed new hit single “Pills and Potions” live for the first time while Drake joined her performing his own single, “Trophies.”

Nicki Minaj gave fans a behind the scenes look of her Minx fusion photo shoot and commercial.
What we especially loved about the images is how natural the rapstress appears to look. For weeks, Nicki has made much effort to tone down her usual very colorful, over the top and animated makeup and attire.
In our opinion? She’s done a great job and couldn’t look any better these days. Take a look of some more images of the rapper and her behind the scenes shoot of her Myx Fusion commercial.

Recently, rapper Nicki Minaj released a new song, “Lookin A** N*gga” and dropped a video for the track yesterday. Despite her revealing outfit and her usual lyrics implying sex; in this song, she raps, “I don’t want sex, give a f*ck about your ex, I don’t even want a text from y’all n*ggas.” Who pissed Ms. Minaj off this time?
At the end of the video, we see the 31-year old female rapper shooting two guns into the air and then, presumably at a male, whose eyes we see throughout the entire clip. For most of us who are used to Nicki Minaj’s crazy personas, this is nothing new—she is just reminding us that yes, somedays she can be a Barbie, but then other days, she is a crazy boss bitch that you do not want to mess with!
These two remind me of ‘Toddlers & Tiaras’ – two divas who want to outshine each other and do it so dramatically. While Nicki is known for throwing tantrums, Mariah is queen of throwing subtle shade, you know, in that I’m above the drama passive-aggressive way. Just stop it! You both look silly.
While their feud, stemming from last summer, have subsided a bit it’s clear these two women do not like each other.
During an interview with Barbara Walters, which leaked online, Carey (kind of) resurrected the beef all over again. The interview was actually done not long after their big blow-out caught on video where Minaj is heard spewing profanity and insinuating Carey threw a few jabs her way over the summer. Although it wasn’t actually heard on camera Carey says Minaj threatened to shoot her. According to reports Nicki blurted out, “If I had a gun, I would shoot that f—ing bitch”.
When asked about the fight with Mariah admits she felt her safety was in jeopardy. “It felt like an unsafe work environment,” she told Walters. _______READMORE
I suppose this is a good problem to have. Nicki Minaj fears ‘American Idol’ will take away her street credibility.
She tells THR, “I had a lot of talks with people — my family, my best friends, my label, Lil Wayne, management and then the producers,” she says. In the end, it was Darnell (one of the idol producers) who helped sway her. Adds the 30-year-old: “He was so lovable and made me feel so comfortable and confident. He kept saying, ‘I promise we’re going to protect you; you’re going to love it, we’re a big family.’ ”
On becoming more famous and her street cred she says, “[there is] a judgmental culture in hip-hop,” _______READMORE
Congratulations are in order for Rihanna. The Bajan beauty and singer has finally scored her first number one album with her seventh studio album, ‘Unapologetic’. Not only did the album debut atop the UK charts it also topped the US Billboard 200 charts. The final numbers are in! ‘Unapologetic’ has sold 238,949 in its first week. The album is also the singer’s highest selling debut of her career.
Although her nearly disastrous ’777′ tour that left journalists disappointed, it was a driving promotional vehicle. The album’s controversial title and collaboration with ex Chris Brown didn’t hurt either.
That Rihanna reign certainly ain’t letting up.
