Nicki Minaj embraces the Third Reich asethetic

Nicki Minaj's new video has a whiff of Nazism about it. I say a whiff, but that might underplay it:

Kinda makes Brian Ferry's frothing over Nazi architecture seem small fry, right?

Still, I'm sure Nicki can explain how this is all somehow okay.

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:

Oh, that's alright then. As you were.
