Move over, Destiny's Child. Nicki Minaj is the reigning queen of bootyliciousness. The rap vixen, who is known for her curvaceous derriere, shakes what the good Lord gave her in her video for her new single "Anaconda."
Actually, it's debatable whether or not Her Minajesty's junk in the trunk is real or the work of plastic surgeons. That's a rumor that has dogged (but not felled) the pink-loving rap goddess for years. But who gives a crap, really, because she loves backing dat ass up!
"Anaconda" samples Sir Mix-A-Lot's 1990s smash hit "Baby Got Back," which was a campy tip o' the hat and homage to the female form and rear end. But the video is so outrageously over- the-top that you can't help but love it, with a chuckle.
Minaj's slaps the rumps of other well-bootyed ladies. She twerks. She gets all up in Drake's grill, since he is her fellow #YMCMB boo and he makes a cameo that sorta screams "WTF am I doing here?" She also plays with whipped cream.
While her critics might slam the video as objectifying, it's clear that Minaj, who is the nemesis of Lil Kim, is in on this joke, with a wink wink here and a nudge nudge there.
Watch the video here ... but only after you've enjoyed this collection of bootylicious GIFs from the video. It's all you really need to see and know.
