Nicki Minaj came under swift fire for her ‘Only’ lyric video for using Nazi imagery over the weekend. Nicki has since apologized, but claims the video was made by friend/producer/videographer, A. Loucas happens to be Jewish.
Nicki took to Twitter to explain, “The artist who made the lyric video for “Only” was influenced by a cartoon on Cartoon Network called “Metalocalypse” & Sin City. Both the producer, & person in charge of over seeing the lyric video (one of my best friends & videographer: A. Loucas), happen to be Jewish. I didn’t come up w/the concept, but I’m very sorry & take full responsibility if it has offended anyone. I’d never condone Nazism in my art.
Well there you have it Nicki’s sorry. I’m surprised no one in her camp warned her this may backfire. Over at TMZ Nicki was caught at LAX where the paps asked her about the video and she says its not anti-sematic since her new boyfriend (the guy at the airport with her) is Jewish. Hmmmm….
