Now, I know videos don’t have ratings and thus Vevo was not incumbent to release the visual while most kiddies were sound asleep; however, something tells me releasing this in the middle of the night was definitely a strategic plan to quell what will surely be a very loud uproar.
Previous clips and video stills released pretty much prepared us for what we were going to see. However, seeing it all put together still managed to shock many… myself and most of Twitter included.
“Anaconda” is hardly the first PG17 video to be released, see Rihanna’s “Pour it Up” and Beyonce’s “Partition” for proof of that. However, it is a reminder of how sleazy and talentless the music industry has become and how low many female artists will sink in order to garner that extra bit of attention.
What’s even worse, is that “Anaconda” is being called a feminist anthem for Black women who have had their bodies attacked in the same manner Minaj was attacked when she unveiled the song’s cover art.
I won’t get into all of that because if I start I won’t be able to stop. What I will say is that “Anaconda” features a bevy of beautiful women, Minaj included, who don’t have much to offer outside of their bodies. The song is horrible and the video is meant to distract us from that.
That is all.
