This is a star whose biggest hit of the year so far was "Anaconda," a song solely made to promote a video which was made to promote her butt. Folks shouldn't set their expectations too high in terms of her having a grasp of historical sensitivity.

This is ridiculous. Your views on the musical worth aside, the video was no worse imagery than Pink Floyd's The Wall. There are few better ways to imply fascism than the imagery used.

"I’d never condone Nazism in my art,”

My art? Waving your arse around is art?

How this woman ever got to judge other people's talent astonishing. Wave your arse around and swear a lot.

I got thrown out of a pub for doing that once.

Nothing wrong with women flaunting their butts.

This video probably passed through many people before being released to the public. Some of those people probably have extensive history in the music industry. Not one person was aware of the type of backlash this may cause as the same type of thing has happened in the past like with Prince Harry for example?

take full responsibility if it has offended anyone

which is essentially the modern imperative. and there is always someone who is going to be offended. slowly strangling any originality out of modern culture - whatever our views of the content. At the end of the day all we will be left with is superficial nonsense like artists waving their butts or blokes singing mysogynistic nonsense with scantily clad women in the background etc etc.

Nicely animated music video, but so bad and simple melody , and lyrics , omg, only trash words . And for all concept, yes, it resembles Nazi , but that is there only to show she is a ultimate boss of huge amount of people who would do anything for her, thats the point of video,ultimate glorification of one person, with no compromise .

Just watched the video the so called song is far and above worse than the video or anything it depicts. Absolute garbage lyrics.

Another great Trini artist. Minaj should go back to POS where she belongs.

No swastikas, no Nazis.

Another case of covering the lack of talent with simple-mind shock value. Anyone out there ever hear of PR?
