Nicki Minaj Video Director Admits Using Nazi-Inspired Imagery

Follow us:@eotmonline on Twitter |EOTM.Media on Facebook

Hours after Nicki Minaj took ”full responsibility” for the Nazi imagery in the lyric video for her new single “Only,” the video’s director has said that he will not ask for forgiveness for its content and admitted to being inspired by Nazi emblems.

“First, I’m not apologizing for my work, nor will I dodge the immediate question,” Jeffrey Osborne told Myspace. “The flags, armbands, and gas mask (and perhaps my use of symmetry?) are all representative of Nazis.” The video director said that his sentiments were his own and did not reflect those of Minaj, her label Young Money (whose logo he emblazoned on red armbands, similar to a swastika) or the other artists who appeared on the song (Drake, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown).

“As far as an explanation, I think it’s actually important to remind younger generations of atrocities that occurred in the past as a way to prevent them from happening in the future,” Osborne said. “And the most effective way of connecting with people today is through social media and pop culture. So if my work is misinterpreted because it’s not a sappy tearjerker, sorry I’m not sorry. What else is trending?”

Osborne pointed out symbolism in the video with American origins, including an MQ9 Reaper Drone, F22 Raptor, Sidewinder missile, security cameras, M60, SWAT uniform, General’s uniform, the Supreme Court and the Lincoln Memorial. Additionally, the video displays Russian T-90 tanks, Belgian FN FAL, German mp5 (which Osborne points out was not manufactured until 1966), a Ferrari and a pope.

“What’s also American is the First Amendment, which I’ve unexpectedly succeeded in showing how we willfully squeeze ourselves out of that right every day,” Osborne said.

On Tuesday, Minaj spoke on Osborne’s behalf, claiming he had been influenced by Sin City and the cartoon series Metalocalypse. “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,” Minaj wrote on Twitter. “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.”

Earlier this week, Abraham H. Foxman – the director of the Anti-Defamation League and a Holocaust survivor – condemned the video in a statement, highlighting the coincidence that it premiered on the anniversary of Kristallnacht, an event where tens of thousands of Jews were placed in concentration camps in 1938. “Nicki Minaj’s new video disturbingly evokes Third Reich propaganda and constitutes a new low for pop culture’s exploitation of Nazi symbolism,” he wrote.

Beyoncé pulled another Bey last night with a surprise drop remixing the hit “Flawless” featuring Nicki Minaj.

This marks the first time ever the two divas have collaborated on a song. Queen bey puts it down hard with this line: “We escalate up in this bitch like elevators / Of course sometimes shit goes down when it’s a billion dollars on an elevator.” *(haha, memories…hell’er)

Those lyrics likely refer to an incident that took place at the Standard Hotel in New York City as Bey, Jay Z and Solange left a Met Gala after-party in May. In the surveillance video initially obtained by TMZ, Solange kicks her brother-in-law multiple times before being restrained by another person.

Aside from a statement released in the aftermath, the couple has stayed silent about what triggered the fight. Solange recently told Lucky magazine that things are “all good” with her sister and brother-in-law.

Nicki Minaj Disses Iggy Azalea: Goes after Australian import at BET Awards – #Priceless

Nicki Minaj made some barbed comments during her acceptance speech for her fifth consecutive win as Best Female Hip-Hop Artist at the BET Awards Sunday night that appeared to be directed toward Iggy Azalea.

After quasi-plugging her upcoming album The Pink Print, Minaj said, “What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is, that when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it.” Then she gestured in a way that seemed like she was locking her mouth and mugged at the audience. As the audience cheered, she said, “No, no, no, no, no shade,” and smiled at Lil Wayne. The comment about writing her own verses seemed to address rumors that Azalea, who was nominated in the same category as Minaj, employed ghostwriters like T.I., according to Gawker.

Minaj went on to tell a story about Lil Wayne making her perfect her verses in the studio. “I’m still one of the only MCs that’s out here spitting metaphors and making you think,” she said. “And I really don’t even care if I get my credit or if I don’t.”

Outside of her biting commentary, Minaj shared that she had a health scare that she did not report to the media. “The other day, literally – I didn’t tell anyone this – I really thought I was about to die,” she said. “Like I was saying my prayers to die. And I didn’t even wanna call the ambulance because I thought, ‘Well if I call the ambulance, it’s gonna be on TMZ. And I would rather sit there and die…’ And it made me realize, ‘I don’t care what anybody gotta say. I’ma do me.’”

Over the past few months, Minaj has been teasing The Pink Print, releasing a surreal video for the ballady “Pills N Potion” in early June. Although the album does not have an official release date, Minaj said at the award show that it would come out this year.
Sony Creative Software Inc.

The award show also featured performances by Pharrell, Usher, Azalea, John Legend and Robin Thicke, who dedicated his new song “Forever Love” to estranged wife Paula Patton. “I miss you and I’m sorry,” Thicke said, with the singer displaying a photo of the couple. Jay Z and Beyoncé closed out the show with a video performance of the remix to Beyonce’s hit “Partition.”

Chris Brown Returns To The Stage At The BET Awards

Let’s be honest, the 2014 BET Awards were filled with some very exciting moments! But let’s get down to the best of the best, shall we?

First and foremost, Pharrell’s opening performance of “Come Get It BAE” was SO fun. He was surrounded by dancers in vintage-inspired cheerleader costumes, and each of them rocked the word “BAE” embroidered across their chests. Sexy!

Then, much to everyone’s surprise, Pharrell brought out Missy Elliott — talk about a throwback! The duo performed an oldie but definitely a goodie: “Pass That Dutch.”

Chris Rock hosted the awards show, and he was hilarious throughout. Of course, he made a few jabs at artists like Chris Brown and Justin Bieber — but he was entertaining nonetheless.

Next up, presenters Regina Hall and Gabrielle Union proved that America’s ladies are not quite over Jeremy Meeks just yet. At first the presenters tried to chastise us for swooning over this criminal, but by the end of their speech they were totally on our team. He’s irresistible!

The second performance of the night was Lil Wayne, and he rocked the house with a performance of his latest hits “Krazy” and “Believe Me.” Sadly, there was no Drake cameo.

John Legend took a break from performing “All of Me” to perform another Chrissy Teigen inspired hit, “You and I.” Then, as an encore, he introduced the soulful Jhene Aiko for a duet of her song, “The Worst.” We loved it!

One of the most exciting moments of the night? Chris Brown’s return to the stage! Lil Wayne opened up their hit song “Loyal,” and soon enough Chris was back where he belongs — showing us that he has still got some super smooth dance moves.

Also, did he borrow Wayne’s shirt? Too bad he kept it buttoned up!

Pharrell Dedicates Award Wins To Wife Helen & Son Rocket

Let’s take a break from the performances and awards for a hilarious Chris Rock moment — when he referred to Paris Hilton as a Kardashian. Eek!

“You’re really getting your Kardashian on tonight, huh?” the comedian asked. Thankfully, Paris took it in stride with a big smile. After all, she and Kim were friends for a long time back in the day!

Another notable performance? Usher‘s medley hits! The R&B singer performed a ton of his songs in an awesome medley, including “Confessions,” “Yeah,” and “You Don’t Have to Call.” It was amazing to see him push out so many songs in just one performance!

A sweet moment during the show? When Pharrell won Video of the Year for his hit song “Happy” and quickly turned to kiss his wife, Helen Lasichanh, on the cheek. Still swooning!

Little did he know this was not his last award of the night. “This one’s for my son Rocket,” Pharrell told the audience while accepting the award for Best Male R&B Album.

Later, Jennifer Hudson slayed the BET Awards in a super sexy leather dress. She sang her fun song “Walk It Out” as she made her way through the audience, dancing and interacting with different people — especially the handsome men!

Once she got to the stage, she switched to “It’s Your World,” and the stage quickly turned into a roller disco. Dancers skated around her in circles on the stage — so cool.

Beyonce & Jay Z Close The Show From ‘On The Run’

In case anyone in the audience needed a break, host Chris Rock came around and passed out Roscoe’s chicken and waffles to everyone. Yes, really! Even Paris Hilton and Snoop Dogg got some. Lucky!

If Chris Brown’s performance left you wanting more, you were in luck. He came out as a surprise guest during August Alsina‘s set! He remixed “I Luv This Shit” along with the help of Trey Songz. Epic!

Nicki Minaj showed us a little bit of her sexy side when she started off her performance on the back of a motorcycle with a handsome driver at the wheel. Then, she hit the second stage to sing “Pills N Potions” amidst a strange backdrop that included a giant mushroom and a man in a bunny costume. We love seeing Nicki back on stage!

Speaking of powerful and sexy women, Iggy Azalea joined T.I. for “No Mediocre” before stealing the stage and getting the crowd on their feet with her record-breaking hit, “Fancy.” We are still not tired of that song!

Things became a little more serious when Pharrell took the stage yet again to honor the Lifetime Achievement award winner, Lionel Richie. The presentation was followed by touching performance from John Legend, who sang “Hello” and “Lady” in Lionel’s honor.

Lionel took the stage shortly after the performance to accept his award, thanking everyone from his family to God. The legendary performer then had a little bit of fun singing his own songs, including “Easy Like Sunday” and the always fun “All Night Long.”

Another touching moment came when Myrlie Evers-Williams was honored with the Humanitarian Award by BET’s CEO, Debra Lee.

Towards the end of the show, Robin Thicke dedicated his performance of “Forever Love” to his estranged wife, Paula Patton. “I miss you, and I’m sorry,” he told the camera, obviously speaking to Paula. So sad.

Who better than to close out the show than Jay Z and Beyonce? Um, no one. Even though the royal couple of hip hop and R&B could not be there in person, they put on a ridiculously sexy performance of “Partition” live from their “On The Run” tour.

And that’s a wrap, folks! Now tell us what was YOUR favorite moment of the BET Awards? Let us know below!
