Nicki Minaj tries to topple Kim Kardashian with racy #breaktheinternet Paper cover
Nicki Minaj has just attempted the unthinkable—to topple Kim Kardashian as the reigning queen of breaking the internet. And, she has certainly pulled out all the stops.
Three years after Kim Kardashian’s viral naked cover, Paper magazine has come back with another “Break The Internet” issue. And, it sure is racy.
In the NSFW cover story—entitled “Minaj À Trois”— the rapper appears three-fold in varying degrees of undress.
You’d be forgiven for assuming, at first glance, that Minaj is in the company of two other women. But, look closely and you’ll see three different Nickis, each styled completely differently.
“We have never called an issue Break the Internet since we did it back in 2014 with . It takes a certain type of talent, with an awesome fan base and the ability to put trust in PAPER to work our magic,” explains Drew Elliott, the magazine’s creative director.
“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,” Elliott continues.
So, how does Kim Kardashian feel about Minaj’s attempt to usurp her? Well, if her Instagram comments are anything to go by, she absolutely loves it.
“🔥🔥🔥,” commented Kim K.
Apparently there’s more to come. Paper magazine launches the remainder of the cover story on Wednesday afternoon—and it promises that “it won’t disappoint.”
The internet better get ready to be broken.
