Nicki Minaj Issues Apology After Being Slammed For “Insensitivity To Holocaust Victims”/ Video Director Refuses To Apologize

lil wayne drake nicki minaj that grape juice 2014 only Nicki Minaj Issues Apology After Being Slammed For Insensitivity To Holocaust Victims/ Video Director Refuses To Apologize

‘Va Va Voom’ vixen Nicki Minaj saw her name zoom right to the top of the Anti-Defamation League’s hitlist after her latest lyric video ‘Only’ hit the net recently.

Assisted by Chris Brown and fellow Young Money crew members Drake and Lil Wayne, the visual instantly came under fire after fans likened its imagery to Nazi themes.  The uproar prompted Abraham Foxman, the League’s director and Holocaust survivor himself, to issue a statement on the group’s behalf:

Nicki Minaj’s new video disturbingly evokes Third Reich propaganda and constitutes a new low for pop culture’s exploitation of Nazi symbolism. The irony should be lost on no one that this video debuted on the 76th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the “night of broken glass” pogrom that signaled the beginning of the Final Solution and the Holocaust.

This video is insensitive to Holocaust survivors and a trivialization of the history of that era. The abuse of Nazi imagery is deeply disturbing and offensive to Jews and all those who can recall the sacrifices Americans and many others had to make as a result of Hitler’s Nazi juggernaut.

Their outcry did not fall on deaf ears. Just in time for Veteran’s Day, find out what Minaj had to say in response below:

Queen of Soul…And Shade: Aretha Franklin Weighs In On Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj…& Barack Obama

aretha franklin thatgrapejuice cissy 600x324 Queen of Soul...And Shade:  Aretha Franklin Weighs In On Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj...& Barack Obama

As her newest album, ‘Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics,’ is currently reigning over the R&B charts, Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin is hot on the promo trail in its support.

With a campaign of guest appearances plagued with lol-worthy moments (i.e. interview glitches, Cissy Houston‘s lack of interest in memorizing words, etc.), it seems Franklin has no intentions on slowing the good times from rolling.  Case in point?  Aunt Re sat down with The Wall Street Journal recently to discuss her new project and, as always, was asked to weigh in on today’s top crop of talent.  Her answers were…umm…interesting to say the least.

Tuck in below to see how the R&B legend feels about the likes of Alicia Keys, Taylor Swift, and Nicki Minaj.  This, of course, came just days after Billboard.com interviewed her and quizzed her similarly.  Her comments on Beyonce and co. were…well…just as interesting. See what we mean below.

Bonus:  Did you miss Aretha weighing in on Cissy’s now meme-tastic performance on David Letterman?  Hear her thoughts on this as well:
