Nicki Minaj has a ménage à trois with, erm, herself on NSFW Paper magazine cover

Kim Kardashian was applauded (and even worn an award for) breaking the Internet’ back in 2014 when photographer Jean-Paul Goude captured her infamous behind for the cover of Paper magazine. But, Nicki Minaj has done one better with her December 2017 cover for the same magazine.

The 34-year-old features in a ‘Minaj a trois’ with three different versions of herself in the shoot, photographed by Ellen von Unwerth.

One Minaj, with black hair, is seated wearing only nipple pasties, thigh-high glittering Saint Laurent boots and pink satin Baroness pants, while a second, with a blonde ponytail and wearing a Nene L.A. Shirot dress, leans over and grabs her boob.

The third Minaj clone, clad in a latex A.F. Vandevorst bodysuit, kneels at the crotch of the first with her tongue poking out suggestively.

The rapper posted the cover on her Instagram account on Tuesday night, with the caption “Wanna Minaj?”.

The shoot appears to have received Kim’s seal of approval, with the reality star liking the photo and commenting with a trio of fire emojis.

Paper magazine’s known for its memorable photoshoots. The winter 2015 issue showed ‘American Horror Story’ actress Chloë Sevigny going full on Carrie and covered in blood. And last December, top model Bella Hadid freed the nipple for the magazine.

In the summer of 2015, Miley Cyrus stripped off and hugged her pet pig on the cover and in March of the same year Marilyn Manson posed with his father in matching make-up, which many readers found unsettling.
