SOMEONE GET THE SMELLING SALTS, I’M ABOUT TO FAINT.

PAPER Magazine has put the utterly fabulous Nicki Minaj not once, not twice, but three times on its cover. It’s Nicki done three ways. It’s a Minaj à trois, and I’m dead.

It’s the mag’s second ever Break The Internet cover. The first one obviously featured Kim Kardashian‘s greased up and fabulous ass, and by all accounts, it damn near broke it.

PAPER mag’s creative director Drew Elliot wrote:

“It takes a certain type of talent, with an awesome fan base and the ability to put trust in PAPER to work our magic. I have always loved all of the looks that Nicki has done (and she has done them all). Her style (typically anchored by her off-the-charts hair choices) matches her musical talent perfectly. Break the Internet is all about the big idea, the word, the image. It came to me one day that ‘Minaj à trois’ had never been done. HOW? We have seen different versions of Nicki, from high fashion to seductive to in-your-face and eye-catching all at the same time. But we had never seen all of these together — and now we have the chance, thanks to our cover shoot with the rap star and [photographer] Ellen von Unwerth. Welcome to Break the Internet.”

The story won’t be out for another day, so for right now let’s just bask in this gloriousness.

The people… they are shook. S-H-O-O-K-E-T-H to their B-O-N-E-S.
