Frisky Rant: The Real Problem With Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” Cover Art & Her “Black Jezebel” Brand

Frisky Rant: The Real Problem With Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" Cover Art & Her "Black Jezebel" Brand

Last week, Nicki Minaj released the artwork for her new single “Anaconda,” featuring the rapper in a squat position with her large posterior aimed directly at viewers. The image was met with mostly support from fans and critics but some questioned if the image was “too racy.” In response to those criticisms, Minaj tweeted several Sports Illustrated photos with White swimsuit models in similar poses and the message “angelic” and “acceptable,” hinting at society’s racial bias that does not treat Black bodies with the same respect as White ones — a statement that was met with more controversy.

A Queen Elizabeth Photobomb Makes This The Best Selfie Ever

Queen Elizabeth Selfie

Two Australian hockey players captured one of the better selfies in Instagram history when Queen Elizabeth peeked into the shot behind them. The queen paid a surprise visit to the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland on Thursday to see a Wales-England hockey match. She arrived early, just as the Australian match was coming to an end, so she hung out and chatted with the Australian players. Players Jayde Taylor and Brooke Peris tried to time their selfie so that the camera would snap just as the queen was walking behind them. The ladies imply that the queen just happened to be smiling in their direction, but I think she was totally trying to get into that shot. Her green outfit even matches theirs!

Page Six Claims Solange Knowles Attacked Jay-Z Over Rihanna

  • Page Six has a big splashy story on Beyoncé and Jay Z’s “crumbling” marriage, which claims the couple blew off Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s wedding because it was too gauche for their highnesses. “[Jay and Bey] are guarding like hell their status,” said Page Six’s source. “Beyoncé wasn’t going to allow a Kardashian to socially climb her. And Jay didn’t want Kanye with Kim — he thinks it’s bad for business. I think Jay lost a little respect for Kanye there.” (Kanye doesn’t give a shit.) The gossip column also claims that Bey’s sister Solange Knowles assaulted Jay in an elevator after the Met Ball because over suspicions he’s sleeping with Rihanna. [Page Six] Keep reading »

Watch The Season 5 Trailer For “The Walking Dead”

Run, Rick, Run!

Considering it’s a post-apocalyptic show about a world overrun by zombies, it’s quite telling that the producers behind “The Walking Dead” say that season five is going to be “much darker.” The cast and crew debuted the upcoming season’s trailer at San Diego Comic-Con — as well as a premiere date of October 12 — saying that the first episode picks up right where season four left off, with the newly reunited group of survivors (minus Carol and Tyreese) facing a possible new enemy at Terminus. Are they cannibals, as has been implied? I guess we’ll have to watch to find out…

Zoe Saldana On Being Successful As A Woman Of Color In Hollywood: “My Balls Are Pretty Big”

Casting Nina Simone
Is Hollywood still colorstruck? The search for Nina Simone is skin deep. Read More »

“I don’t want to spend my life thinking about all the impossibilities I face when I wake up in the morning. But the reality is, I’m a woman of color in America. That itself is enough for you to wake up and go, “Oh, f—!” … My balls are pretty big. There’s a confidence that my sisters and I were raised with. After my dad died [in a car accident, when she was nine years old], my mom moved us from Queens back to the Dominican Republic. A very macho sort of place. But my mom raised us to know that we are equal to anyone.”

Zoe Saldana has always struck me as the best kind of interviewee: someone who will sound off openly and honestly and say things that make you want to be her friend. Scratch that, I want both Zoe and Mama Saldana in my corner.

In this interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Zoe also talked about the controversy around her role in a biopic about Nina Simone. Some people, including Frisky contributor Erica Watson, complained that Hollywood whitewashed Nina’s story by casting a lighter-skinned woman of color like Zoe for the role. Nina Simone was a darker-skinned Black woman who was very proud of her Blackness. Here’s what Zoe — who has addressed the controversy before — has to say about that: Keep reading »
