Nicki Minaj gets raunchy for the cover of Paper Magazine’s “Break The Internet” issue.

If you follow Nicki Minaj on Instagram, you already know that she’s the Queen of thirst traps. Last night, the head Barb striked again and attempted to break the internet after sharing her latest magazine cover. Via Instagram, Minaj tweeted a photo of her Paper Magazine cover – causing quite a stir on social media.

The cover, which was shot by Ellen von Unwerth, features three sexy, self-styled versions of Nicki. The issue serves as Paper Magazine’s second “Break The Internet” issue. Kim Kardashian was the first to tackle the #BreakTheInternet theme in 2014, causing it to go viral.

Drew Elliott of Paper Magazine wrote the following about the “Anaconda” rapper, “We have never called an issue Break the Internet since we did it back in 2014 with Kim Kardashian. It takes a certain type of talent, with an awesome fan base and the ability to put trust in PAPER to work our magic.”

“I have always loved all of the looks that Nicki has done (and she has done them all).Her style (typically anchored by her off-the-charts hair choices) matches her musical talent perfectly. Break the Internet is all about the big idea, the word, the image. It came to me one day that ‘Minaj à trois’ had never been done. HOW?”

“We have seen different versions of Nicki, from high fashion to seductive to in-your-face and eye-catching all at the same time. But we had never seen all of these together — and now we have the chance, thanks to our cover shoot with the rap star and Ellen von Unwerth. Welcome to Break the Internet.”

You can purchase a copy of the new issue here for $10.00.
