Nicki Minaj attempts to 'break the internet' with eye-popping outfits

 Niki Minaj

Nicki Minaj's eye-popping Paper magazine cover has been released - and just like Kim Kardashian, she's trying to break the internet.

The rapper, 34, shared the risqué cover with her millions of fans on Tuesday and it promptly sent the internet into meltdown.

The bold cover, shot by Ellen von Unwerth, features three Nicki's all donning a different barely-there outfit.

Of course it was the middle Nicki - dressed only in latex pink shorts and nipple pasties - that drew the most attention. The other two outfits in comparison are relatively tame.

As well as the shorts and nipple pasties look, she's also rocking a slashed pink dress that shows off her curvy rear and legs, and the third outfit is a bum-baring black leotard.

Nicki styled all her own looks and had four fashion assistants on hand to help.

The magazine points out that they've never called an issue Break the Internet since Kim Kardashian's 2014 shoot.

Paper's creative director Drew Elliott said: “To Break the Internet you have to have a big idea and an even bigger superstar, and Nicki Minaj is certainly that superstar. The best part is we didn’t get one Nicki , we got three.

“ Paper always looks for ways to create culture instead of just report on it. Our media company sits at the centre of where internet culture becomes pop culture, and Nicki is certainly a queen of disruption.

This shoot was ambitious, imagine having to do three shoots to get one image, and Nicki lead the charge.

"Ellen von Unwerth brought her signature playful spirit to this shoot. The internet is the ultimate newsstand.”
