Nicki Minaj has apologized after being accused of using Nazi imagery in her new music video "Only."
The "Anaconda" hitmaker wrote on Twitter today:
The artist who made the lyric video for “Only” was influenced by a cartoon on Cartoon Network called "Metalocalypse" & Sin City.— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) November 11, 2014
Both the producer, & person in charge of over seeing the lyric video (one of my best friends & videographer: A. Loucas), happen to be Jewish— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) November 11, 2014
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.— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) November 11, 2014
Nicki, who recently broke up with her boyfriend of 14 years, Safaree Samuels, is also dating the videographer, Alex.
When asked by gossip website TMZ.com if she wanted to respond to accusations that her video is anti-Semitic, she replied: "No, this is my new Jewish boyfriend Alex. why the f**k would I do that. We did this together."
