Nicki Minaj is a woman who clearly enjoys being in control. Which explains why her latest video for her single Only showcases her holding men hostage and having her way with them.

As she divulged to GQ when asked about her inspiration for Anaconda, Minaj explains her vision for creating an environment where men are rendered helpless and defenseless, “it’s all about the female taking back the power, and if you want to be flirty and funny that’s fine, but always keeping the power and control in everything”.

Looks like Only is an extension of that mindset, as we are privy to vividly stimulating imagery that features all the gadgets necessary for bondage; cages, handcuffs, etc. The men are enveloped in a den that they can’t escape from – and some of them are literally in chains while others are able to filter about in wonder.

Lil Wayne, Drake and Chris Brown are among the revelers allowed to roam around within limits.

It must be a dream come true for Minaj to wield such power without restrictions, or maybe it’s just every woman’s private fantasy.

    Lord knows, I am not in her demographic, but after a minute or so, I clicked it off. It has way too much nasty cursing for me. Saying who you don’t screw or telling someone to eat your ass is not profound lyricism.

      According to a certain demographic of feminists, Nicki is celebrated because she is expressing her sexuality without limits, which I find to be “interesting”.
      I find it to be interesting because she is expressing the most popular aspect of feminism: showcasing one’s sexuality. Record execs don’t mind it because they know sex sells and it cause their pockets to fatten up.
      I doubt they would be so accepting, if Nicki (or any other “feminist” artist) starts to promote artists owning their own masters and fight back against sexual harassment from record/studio execs.

    White owned media in the U.S. is firing on all cylinders and black folks just don’t get it. Even with the Sony wake up call.

      This. We’re not gonna get it, though.

    Complete and utter trash. I long for the days when black women artists in the mainstream were actually about something.
