Last Thursday, Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" single cover was released, revealing her bare ass in a thong and subsequently causing a ton of commotion on Twitter. Nicki responded to those who were hating via posts on Instagram showing white women baring their backsides on the pages of Sports Illustrated and elsewhere. She captioned them "ACCEPTABLE" before posting the "Anaconda" cover with the caption "UNACCEPTABLE," and she made a good point.
Now her "Only time you on the net is when you Google my ass" lyrics from Big Sean's "Dance (A$$)" seem all too relevant. However, if you're Googling Nicki's rump today, you may find images of her "Anaconda" cover on various famous works of art. Also, on bed sheets. The pairing of Nicki with these classic works of art is hilarious, and we can't get enough.
Here are a few instances of Nicki's cover art adding to some of the most famous pieces of high art that are floating around online (with a few we made to celebrate the union of Nicki and high art).
