Nicki Minaj releases her 'Break The Internet' Paper Magazine Cover; Kim Kardashian Responds

Updated on 15 Nov, 2017 by

Kim Kardashian’s PAPER magazine cover is the stuff of internet legend. The phrase 'break the internet' was introduced after Kim's viral naked cover released three years before. PAPER released the covers of several other famous and unique faces including Miley Cyrus. However, the trademark phrase 'break the internet' was never used.

Until Last Night!

With three different versions of Nicki Minaj shot by Ellen von Unwerth, Nicki Minaj released the cover with an attempt to topple Kim Kardashian as the prevailing ruler of breaking the internet. What's more, she has surely made a special effort. Released by Paper Magazine, The 16-page critique features the 34-years-old rapper in three different salacious poses.

And "Keeping Up with Kardashians" star responded with three "fire emojis" adding the comment on Minaj's photo.

The term "break the internet" was first invented to Kim after she released a partly nude cover back in 2014. She also went on to win the first ever Break The Internet Webby Award two years later for her naked bathroom selfie.
