Cover Media

Nicki Minaj has attempted to break the Internet by having a threesome with herself for a new magazine cover.

The Anaconda rapper doesn't hold back for the Paper magazine cover suggestive shot, taken by Ellen Von Unwerth, which sees one Nicki topless sitting on a stool with her legs open, while another kneels between those legs with her tongue provocatively out. A third, wearing a barely-there dress with her derriere completely on display, stands behind the sitting Nicki, touching her breast.

The picture was taken for the magazine's Break the Internet edition and featured the caption "Minaj a trois" at the bottom.

Nicki also shared the image on her Instagram page, writing: "Wanna Minaj? @papermagazine photos by @ellenvonunwerth #BreakTheInternet edition."

The 34-year-old styled the shoot herself and also shared a behind-the-scenes video of its creation on her Instagram page. In the video, Nicki can be seen in various other poses, such as in the bath and making out with another version of herself - suggesting there are more images which will appear inside the magazine to follow from the cover.

Nicki's cover follows the 2016 Break the Internet edition, which featured Kim Kardashian re-creating French photographer Jean-Paul Goude's "Champagne Incident". The image showed Kim completely nude, holding a black dress just below her ample posterior. Her figure was oiled up, and she added some glamour with a pair of elbow-length gloves and a pearl choker. Another image from the set showed the reality star balancing a champagne glass on her bottom, while spraying the fizzy drink into the glass from a bottle she was holding.

Following the release of Nicki's magazine cover, Kim was among the first to respond, liking the image and commenting with three fire emojis.
