Our photo gallery showcases the best pictures booty-licious in all her glory since the beginning of this year!
In addition, the new music video for "Anaconda" has received major media attention in the past few days. According to Yahoo Music, "Minaj's rump-shaking clip, which premiered on Vevo at midnight Thursday, tallied 19.6 million video plays in 24 hours, besting the 19.3 million streams Cyrus' 'Wrecking Ball' generated on the first day of its release in September 2013."
"The nearly five-minute 'Anaconda' video is packed with gratuitous moments of Minaj and her background dancers gyrating to a track that samples Sir Mix-A-Lot's 'Baby Got Back,' his 1992 ode to women's derrieres. Hip-hop heartthrob Drake makes a buzzy cameo in the video, receiving a special lap dance from Minaj. The video has sparked a massive reaction via social media. The hashtag #AnacondaVideoOnVevo received 854 million impressions and 145,267 Twitter mentions from 95,412 users," explained Yahoo Music.
According to Rolling Stone, "the song may or may not appear on Minaj's upcoming record, The Pink Print, but the rapper/singer has yet to announce a release date for the record. All she has offered so far is that the album would indeed come out sometime this year, a promise she made at the BET Awards, where she accepted the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist trophy earlier this year."
Nicki Minaj will be performing at this Sunday's MTV's annual VMAs, which will air live on MTV at 9 PM ET and 6 PM PT. ABC News explains, "The 31-year-old rapper will perform "Anaconda" at this Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards, but she was tight-lipped when it came to revealing details about either that performance or her show-opening performance of "Bang Bang" with Ariana Grande and Jessie J."
