(AllHipHop News) Paper magazine is once again trying to "break the internet" with a new provocative cover. Ellen Von Unwerth shot rap superstar Nicki Minaj for the "Minaj à Trois" issue.
The image features three versions of the scantily dressed Young Money rapper. One Nicki is sitting in a chair as the two others are caressing her sexually.
Back in 2014, Paper attempted to "break the internet" with Kim Kardashian. The nude photo shoot quickly became a trending topic on social media and was discussed in pop culture for weeks.
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.
