NICKI MINAJ Apologizes For Nazi Symbolism In “Only” (Music Video) via @lisafordblog *Explicit* Tuesday 11 November, 2014

“I didn’t come up with the concept, but I’m very sorry and take full responsibility if it has offended anyone,” says Nicki Minaj. “I’d never condone Nazism in my art”

The Anti-Defamation League drew negative attention to Nick Minaj by blasting her new animated music video over the weekend and accusing her of mimicking Nazism through imagery showing soldiers in red arm bands, Minaj as their dictator, and the “Young Money logo has been compared by some to a swastika”. The organization’s director, Abraham H. Foxman – a Holocaust survivor – called it “a new low for pop culture’s exploitation of Nazi symbolism.”

According to Rolling Stone, “Foxman condemned the video not just for its imagery, but for the tactlessness of releasing the video on the 76th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the “Night of Broken Glass” pogrom in which tens of thousands of Jews were brought to concentration camps and more than 1,000 synagogues were burned, signaling the beginning of the Holocaust.”

“The artist who made the video for ‘Only’ was influenced by a cartoon on Cartoon Network called Metalocalypse and [the non–Cartoon Network-affiliated movie and graphic novel] Sin City,” she wrote. “Both the producer and person in charge of overseeing the lyric video (one of my best friends and videographer: A. Loucas), happen to be Jewish. I didn’t come up with the concept, but I’m very sorry and take full responsibility if it has offended anyone. I’d never condone Nazism in my art.” – Nicki Minaj via Twitter.
