Nicki Minaj: I’m “Sorry” For Nazi Imagery In “Only” Video

Nicki Minaj is finally apologizing for the Nazi imagery in her lyric video for the song “Only.” As i previously reported, Minaj’s video uses several symbols evocative of Nazi-era Germany, including having the singer’s cartoon likeness stand as a dictator in front of soldiers wearing red arm bands like those of SS officers. The video, which features an animated Chris Brown as a soldier, Lil Wayne as a businessman, and Drake as a priest, has a similar look to the type of Nazi propaganda films made by Leni Riefenstahl , featuring gas masks and an interlocking Y-M symbol (for the record label Young Money) that’s drawn comparisons to swastikas.
