Nicki Minaj Fires Back at Miley Cyrus for 'Anaconda' Meme
By Sophie Schillaci
Nicki Minaj has seen her fair share of "Anaconda" memes and for the most part, she seems to be loving the attention.
Minaj set tongues wagging last month when she unveiled the bootylicious (and totally NSFW) art for her latest single. The song samples Sir Mix A Lot's iconic hip hop track "Baby Got Back" and the art appropriately features Minaj's famous backside in nothing but a pink g-string.
The pic set off a slew of memorable imitations, including one featuring Marge Simpson, and Minaj has been Instagramming a few of her favorites. But she appears to be drawing the line at fellow headline-maker Miley Cyrus.
Cyrus channeled the rapper on Sunday with her own version of the "Anaconda" art, which Minaj re-grammed with the caption "Give me one good reason why Miley made this her twitter avi." The snark was accompanied by a series of crying-laughing smiley emojis and the hashtag #AnacondaOniTunes.
Later, Cyrus posted an image of her former Disney character Hannah Montana striking the same pose. Again, Minaj re-grammed with the caption "No chill ZONE!!!!" and a decidedly less happy emoji.
Is Minaj throwing shade at Cyrus or is the banter all in good fun? Barbz, tell us what you think using #ETNow and in the comments section below.
