Nicki Minaj Is All About That Ass In The Music Video For “Anaconda”
Is it fair to say that Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” is the female counterpoint to Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back”? The song samples heavily from the original track, while the video released this morning features scenes that reference Mix-A-Lot’s original lyrics, like Nicki dressed like ’80s workout-era Jane Fonda. Plus, there are more (jiggly, bouncing) round things in your face than I can actually count. Maybe there’s more to parse here, but well, I’m sprung.
