The Word: Nicki Minaj Rocks GQ & Claims Her “Anaconda” Video Was Meant To Empower Women…


We’ve seen her style evolve tremendously over the past couple of years. She’s gone from natural to bone straight, to multiple colors, right back to natural! And that doesn’t include the ensembles that accompany each look. So we definitely appreciate the current style of Nicki Minaj and so does GQ.

Inside the feature/article, Nicki does her best to prove that Anaconda and it’s video was not a flop, but a strong visual that represented strong women and strong decisions.

On the Anaconda video and its message:

I don’t know what there is to really talk about… I’m being serious. I just see the video as being a normal video. I think the video is about what girls do. Girls love being with other girls, and when you go back to us being younger, we would have slumber parties and we’d be dancing with our friends.

She [Nicki’s character in the video] is just talking about two guys that she dated in the past and what they’re good at and what they bought her and what they said to her. It’s just cheeky, like a funny story.


I’m chopping up the banana. Did you realize that? At first I’m being sexual with the banana, and then it’s like, ‘Ha-ha, no.’ Yeah, that was important for us to show in the kitchen scene [before the Drake scene] because it’s always about the female taking back the power, and if you want to be flirty and funny that’s fine, but always keeping the power and the control in everything.



The November issue of GQ hits newsstands nationwide on October 28.

-Stay Fly!
