Nicki Minaj's new video has a whiff of Nazism about it. I say a whiff, but that might underplay it:
Still, I'm sure Nicki can explain how this is all somehow okay.
I didn't come up w/the concept, but I'm very sorry & take full responsibility if it has offended anyone. I'd never condone Nazism in my art.— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) November 11, 2014
Just a quick thing, Nicki, starting out saying "it wasn't me" isn't the best way to start taking full responsibility.
And I don't think anyone was suggesting you were condoning Naziism, more using the imagery of a regime which killed millions to flog a few digital downloads. You were trivialising it.
In fact, the only way this could be worse is if you tried to tell us that one of your friends is... oh, hang on:
Both the producer, & person in charge of over seeing the lyric video (one of my best friends & videographer: A. Loucas), happen to be Jewish— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) November 11, 2014
Oh, that's alright then. As you were.
