Nicki Minaj spoofs Kim's nude photo shoot on SNL

2014-12-08 11:29

Los Angeles - Nicki Minaj spoofed Kim Kardashian West's nude photoshoot for Paper magazine during an episode of Saturday Night Live.

The Anaconda hitmaker was supposed to provide the musical entertainment on the ever-popular comedy show - with Hollywood star James Franco hosting - but it was Nicki who ultimately stole the show with her impersonations.

Nicki, 31, teased Kim during the Weekend Update section of the show, as she pretended to be the reality TV star talking about her eye-catching photos, which she promised would break the internet.

Nicki pretended to be 34-year-old Kim expressing her fury over how "the entire thing was completely misinterpreted".

Shortly afterwards, Nicki had her face projected onto the infamous image of Kim exposing her breasts.

However, Nicki joked that the pictures had the backgrounds removed and that she was, in fact, being examined by a doctor rather than posing for cameras.

She said: "See! It was actually a public service announcement about getting regular check-ups from your gynecologist."

This comes shortly after Kim defended her decision to pose naked for Paper magazine, claiming it made her feel more self-confident.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians beauty told Elle magazine: "I did it as an art project that was going to make me feel confident and feel good. And it taught me to do what you want to do."
