Cardi B is not keeping Nicki Minaj up at night; neither is controversial TV host Wendy Williams.
Recently, the platinum-selling femcee decided to break the Internet by being the cover girl of Paper Magazine.
The racy cover features Minaj in various outfits and lingerie doing a variety of scandalous and sensual gestures.
The pictures inside the publication grabbed headlines and became a hot topic on several TV programs.
The host of the Wendy Williams Show had a lot to say about the raunchy spread.
And a source close to Minaj claimed that she had the following reaction to Williams’ comments: “She is laughing at the people who are getting all bent out of shape over her Paper cover. She knows that cover was straight fire, and her haters are not going to make her think otherwise. Nicki’s happy Wendy is shading her. If no one was talking, then she would be worried. She wanted to do something iconic, and she did. No one is going to forget this cover.”
The pal stated that the “Anaconda” diva is proud of the photos and added: “Nicki is so proud of this cover. She had so much fun doing the shoot. Break The Internet.”
On social media, Lil Wayne’s protégée has been bragging about the pictures.
She wrote: “Over 2 million likes. My @papermagazine cover became my most double tapped IG pic within 24 hrs. Paper’s most liked pic as well. So check it out in motion.Pick up the Nov/Dec #BreakTheInternet issue of the mag! Photos by the incredible @ellenvonunwerth. Now playing #TheWayLifeGoesREMIX W/Lil UZI.”
She added: “@papermagazine #WannaMinaj #BreakTheInternet photos by @ellenvonunwerth makeup by @officialsheiks hair by @tokyostylez styled by @maher_1 & myself. If you had to pick one of these three girls, which one u picking? Nicki the Boss (black hair), Harajuku Barbie (pink hair), or Nicki Da Ninja (blonde hair)?”
Williams threw some massive shade at Minaj’s way by saying: “I get in a Cardi B world, you have been here for a moment, and you are trying to retain your position in rap music and stuff. I get it, Remy Ma is on your tail, and Lil Kim is about to do something awful. Nicki’s about to come out with an album, ‘Sink or Swim,’ and this is her way of swimming … It is desperate and distasteful. This cover makes Kim [Kardashian]’s look like a kindergartener. This has gone too far.”
