So after Nicki Minaj released this Smooth magazine-inspired cover for her upcoming single "Anaconda" yesterday, folks have been letting her have it. Many believe that since she's already attained a certain platform by doing gimmicks like this, and since she's constantly complaining about not being respected or taken seriously, that she shouldn't have gone this route t this point in her career.
Now Nicki's clapping back with an interesting comparison....
Last night, Nicki Minaj took to her Instagram page to clap back at the critics of her new "Anaconda" cover. She compared her booty-ful picture to those of Sports Illustrated models. She posted pics of white models posing in their bikinis and showing off their backsides in a certain manner.
She seems to allude to her shot only being unacceptable because she's a woman of color with much more junk in the trunk (whether it was injected or not).
The difference that we see here, though, is that those women are modeling bikinis...for a swimsuit magazine. It fits. They are not doing this pose and asking to be respected as rappers or something that has nothing to do with swimsuit magazines. They are doing their jobs as swimsuit models. And doing so with a certain level of artistic, albeit sexy, tact.
There are also a few black models for this very magazine who do the same types of poses. But she did not include them.
So, speak on it. Does Nicki have a point? Or is she comparing apples to oranges?
Keyshia Cole's husband Daniel "Boobie" Gibson has an imposter. And apparently, the imposter filed divorce papers. Deets inside...
Keyshia and Boobie are STILL technically married, after talking divorce for over a year now. While the two are indeed separated, neither have pulled the actual divorce trigger. That is until some shady paperwork was filed in L.A. County Superior Court last week.
TMZ says they got a hold of the alleged divorce docs, supposedly filed by Daniel, and things took a turn from there. The site reports:
We got a copy of the docs which looked pretty standard ... citing irreconcilable differences. However, it seemed odd an ex-NBA player like Gibson would list himself as his attorney.
We called the phone # listed for him in the papers -- and the person who answered claimed he was Gibson, but sounded suspect. So, we checked the address listed ... and it turned out to be an El Pollo Loco restaurant. Crazy, right?
The real Boobie assured us he never once considered filing, telling us ... "She would have to do it. I am a Christian. I believe in 'til death do us part.'"
So Boobie not only has an "imposter", but the imposter is filing divorce papers? Hmmmm...
Keyshia also told the site she still plans to move forward with the divorce.
Odd as hell. But not totally impossible. The couple, who share son DJ, seem to be taking their time pulling the trigger. So does that mean there's hope for a reunion? Well, no one saw Boobie's ex-teammate LeBron Jamesreuniting with Cleveland. So anything is possible.
