Nicki Minaj: 'Having "Anaconda" cover art compared to cheap porno was pathetic'
Hitmaker Nicki Minaj has hit out at 'X Factor' judge Sharon Osbourne for describing the photo that graced the cover of "Anaconda" as looking "like a cheap porno cover of a DVD".
Osbourne made the remarks back in 2014 while on U.S. chat show 'The Talk' and added that "I love women's bodies. I love nudity, but this is cheap."
Now, Minaj has spoken to Marie Claire about the double standards that are so obvious here and explained that it's "pathetic" and really disappointing:
"[Kim] Kardashian's naked picture came out, [Sharon Osbourne] praised it, and my fans attacked her for being such a hypocrite. So it wasn't trashy and raunchy when a white woman did it, but it was when a black woman did it? It's quite pathetic and sad, but that is my reality, and I've gotten accustomed to just shutting it down."
