The famous hip hop star Nicki Minaj seems to have caused one of the most recent controversies by releasing her new single Anaconda. The cover art displays the rapper’s bare bum. The video features Nicki and her back up dancers idolizing their bodies by twerking and preforming sexual actions for the whole world to see. Nicki Minaj has successfully changed her reputation into a sex image by: having way too much exposed skin, dancing inappropriately, spraying whipped cream on her chest, eating
bananas sexually, and giving Drake a lap dance.
Besides her actions in the video the lyrics are hard to digest as well. It seems that in this society, it is acceptable to have women or men sexualizing themselves in their provocative ways or forms. Lately artists appear to be competing for attention by wearing less clothing and to simply act sexy.
Another popular trend in controversial music videos is to have the other back up dancers basically grope the artist. The whole video was just so wrong in many ways. From twerking, to her sexual actions Nicki manages to shock the world once again. Another issue with the song are the bizarre lyrics. The striking lines, “Real country ass nigga, let me play with his rifle. Pussy put his ass to sleep, now he calling me NyQuil” is practically screaming sex.
