Nicki Minaj is Sorry You’re Upset About Her Single Art

By Courtney E. Smith

Nicki Minaj stepped into a wave of controversy for the art that accompanies her latest single, “Lookin A** N****.” She posted it to her Instagram account, revealing that the artwork would include a photo of civil rights leader Malcolm X taken for Ebony magazine in 1964. In the photo, X is holding a gun and peeking out the blinds of a window.

The uproar came after the meaning of Malcom X’s placement in the image was construed to refer to him as the titular object referred to, when Minaj’s apology detailed that she meant for X to be the person looking down on the type of gentlemen she would refer to as “Lookin A** N*****.”

Minaj addressed the controversy in a caption to her Instagram account accompanying a still image from the video for the same song.
