Miley Cyrus certainly has some competition, as artist Nicki Minaj is the latest to join the “twerk” craze, posting a video of her showing her assets off on Instagram. On Thursday, the rapper snapped the black-and-white video in a pool presumably at her home. Twerking is a dance move that has recently become popular in music videos and involves a person gyrating his or her hips.
Twenty-year-old Cyrus joined the dance craze in the past few months, and a video of her twerking while wearing a unicorn suit went viral back in March. She then created her own twerk team and showed off the dance yet again in her latest hit video, “We Can’t Stop.” Rihanna, 25, also posted a 15-second video last month of her twerking to A$AP Rocky’s “Fu--in' Problems,” which also features Drake and Kendrick Lamar.
Minaj decided to give fans an eyeful in the clip, also making sure the camera zoomed in on her chest. And this is not the first time the 30-year-old has highlighted her chest. In June, Minaj drove fans crazy when she reposted a topless photo of herself on Instagram. The picture is old, as she wrote #throwback, from the phase when Minaj was still wearing bold wigs. It was likely taken in 2011, as she sported the same hairstyle during 2011 New York Fashion Week. In the picture, the beauty is putting on a wedding dress.
Her rumored boyfriend and hype-man Scaff Beezy posted the image first, and Minaj clearly had no problem sharing it with the social media world.
The curvy rapper has a history of showing off her assets via social media. Minaj gave her Twitter followers a special Valentine’s Day gift, sharing pictures of herself wearing a barely there neon bikini.
