NOW THAT'S A BOSS A$$ B*TCH: NICKI  MINAJ APOLOGIZES FOR MALCOLM X - DivaSnap.com


Stepping up to own up on what is not right and offensive to others is a Boss A$$ Diva.  And that is Mi lady Nicki Minaj who apologizes for using Malcolm X photo in artwork for 'Lookin A$$ N****z' video cover... See detail inside.



After receiving some backlash from folks who felt she misappropriated the image of the black pride leader. 
Nicki Minaj took to her instagram  to apologized on Thursday for the photo of Malcolm X holding a rifle in the artwork for her newly released video 'Lookin Ass N****z.' that hit the net on Wednesday that will be on her upcoming third studio album The Pink Print. Nicki wrote:

What seems to be the issue now? Do you have a problem with me referring to the people Malcolm X was ready to pull his gun out on as Lookin Ass N****z?,' Nicki stated in the  IG pos of the below pic from the video showing her holding an assault rifle.

'Well, I apologize. That was never the official artwork nor is this an official single. This is a conversation. Not a single,' She added 'It is in no way to undermine his efforts and legacy. I apologize to the Malcolm X estate if the meaning of the photo was miscontrued.' She said that the song was made 'to have fun,' not 'to be disrespectful.'


Nicki also snapped about the use of the n-word: 'The word ''n***a'' causes so much debate in our community while the ''n***a'' behavior gets praised and worship. Let's not,' 'Apologies again to his family,'
Nicki wrote in reference to Malcolm X. 'I have nothing but respect and adoration for u. The photo was removed hours ago. Thank you,' she concluded.

The boss Diva then explained that while filming the video she saw the photo showing Malcolm X peering out a window holding an M1 Carbine rifle 'ready to do the same thing for what he believed in!!!'



The raptress also hit up on a radio interview Thursday with Hot 97's Angie Martinez  and said that she wrote the song to empower women because there are too many songs that attack women:
'It was almost parallel in my opinion because he has this big gun ready to shoot at a lookin (expletive) bleep, and that's how I looked at it,' she said. 'I looked at it as this is one of the most memorable people in our history, in black history, who voiced his opinion no matter what, and I understand how my intent was overlooked and I definitely didn't want to offend his family or his legacy.'

The new hit song will appear on Nicki's new album and on a compilation album by her label Young Money.
