Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" Music Video Is As Ridiculous As Expected



Warning: This video contains explicit language and a whole lotta booty. Proceed with caution!
 

With lyrics like "f**k the skinny bitches in the club," we just knew the music video for Nicki Minaj's "Baby Got Back"-sampling butt anthem "Anaconda" was going to be downright ridiculous.

And Ms. Minaj didn't disappoint.

The video hit YouTube at midnight and features more rear end closeups than Kim Kardashian's Instagram page.

Drake also makes one of the few male cameos in the video, as the lucky recipient of one of Nicki's now-infamous lap dances.

Minaj recently opened up about the single's racy cover art -- taken from the set of the video -- and explained why she had no reservations with showing so much skin in the clip.

"[My manager] was thinking that it may be too over the top, and I said, 'Well you know, in the beginning of my career, I did pictures like that, I did photo shoots like that,'" she says. "And I didn’t want to lose that sense of who I am. I feel like one of the people I look up to the most was Madonna, and she’s never stopped pushing the envelope. She’s never stopped taking risks, and I don’t ever want to stop doing that either."

We're guessing you're not even reading this anymore ... what do you think of the video? Sound off below!
