Nicki Minaj’s ‘PAPER’ Magazine Cover: Self-objectification or Female Empowerment?

By  November 29, 2017

In her latest feature on PAPER magazine, Nicki Minaj unapologetically flaunts herself with a couple of clones in sexual poses.

While there might have been a tremendous amount of support for these “Break The Internet” photos, a few remained half-heartedly convinced.

Our verdict? Well, we’re on the fence.

 

On Self-Objectification

These photos can be easily assumed as an example of self-objection. There’s nothing wrong with being naked. But posing in overtly sexual positions and making it available for public consumption somehow perpetuate the male gaze. The association of her “nakedness” with promiscuous acts does not entirely contribute to the desexualization of the female body, especially not when you're openly touching yourself in such places. Miley Cyrus’ MTV VMA performance is a case in point as she later confessed about feeling sexualized after twerking in a latex suit onstage.

 

On Female Empowerment

The glorification of Nicki Minaj’s photos is warranted by her agency to perform sexualized acts on her own body without inflicting anyone else’s morality. Perhaps cloning herself was also a metaphor for what she’s trying to communicate. It’s hard not to praise someone who could have intended to convey a positive message of female empowerment by showing that women are indeed in control of their own sexualities. This makes any other interpretation of her actions irrelevant, as how you view yourself is what’s important.

Despite the public’s ranging opinions, what truly matters is Nicki’s personal intention. Did she really do it to empower fellow women or perpetuate the male gaze for marketing purposes? I guess we’ll never know.
