Nicki Minaj Calls Out Sharon Osbourne Over ‘Anaconda’ Cover

By Robyn Collins

Nicki Minaj is calling out Sharon Osbourne for what she considers double standards over her reaction to her “Anaconda” single artwork.

When Minaj released “Anaconda,” in 2014, Sharon Osbourne said that the cover art “looks like a cheap porno cover of a DVD,” adding, “I love women’s bodies. I love nudity, but this is cheap.”

Minaj has told Marie Claire that she felt Osbourne’s reaction was hypocritical, saying: “[Kim] Kardashian’s naked picture came out, [Sharon Osbourne] praised it, and my fans attacked her for being such a hypocrite. So it wasn’t trashy and raunchy when a white woman did it, but it was when a black woman did it? It’s quite pathetic and sad, but that is my reality, and I’ve gotten accustomed to just shutting it down.”

Osbourne had praised Kardashian’s famous nude selfie, even recreating it herself on Instagram.
