Minaj À Trois.
Paper Magazine is trying to “Break the Internet” again.
Three years after getting Kanye’s wife to spray champagne on her backside, the New York-based magazine calls up Nicki Minaj to up the ante—and that she did. Putting her old cover to shame, Nicki has a minaj with… herself.
Break the Internet is all about the big idea, the word, the image. It came to me one day that ‘Minaj à trois’ had never been done. HOW? We have seen different versions of Nicki, from high fashion to seductive to in-your-face and eye-catching all at the same time. But we had never seen all of these together — and now we have the chance, thanks to our cover shoot with the rap star and Ellen von Unwerth. Welcome to Break the Internet.
Ellen von Unwerth gets the credit for the photography and the cover story will be available sometime today. But let’s be honest, the cover is all that’s needed.
