GLAM SHOTS: Nicki Minaj Breaks the Internet with Minaj À Trois Paper Magazine Cover Shoot
Nicki Minaj covers the winter 2017 issue of PAPER magazine, where she poses as 3 different versions of herself, which is being dubbed a Minaj a Trois, which was shot by famed photographer Ellen von Unwerth. Take a look at what editor Drew Elliott had to say about Nicki’s cover shoot below:
“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.”
Be sure to pick up your issue of the magazine when it hits newsstands on November 28.
