So after Nicki Minaj released this Smooth magazine-inspired cover for her upcoming single "Anaconda" yesterday, folks have been letting her have it. Many believe that since she's already attained a certain platform by doing gimmicks like this, and since she's constantly complaining about not being respected or taken seriously, that she shouldn't have gone this route t this point in her career.
Now Nicki's clapping back with an interesting comparison....
Last night, Nicki Minaj took to her Instagram page to clap back at the critics of her new "Anaconda" cover. She compared her booty-ful picture to those of Sports Illustrated models. She posted pics of white models posing in their bikinis and showing off their backsides in a certain manner.
She seems to allude to her shot only being unacceptable because she's a woman of color with much more junk in the trunk (whether it was injected or not).
The difference that we see here, though, is that those women are modeling bikinis...for a swimsuit magazine. It fits. They are not doing this pose and asking to be respected as rappers or something that has nothing to do with swimsuit magazines. They are doing their jobs as swimsuit models. And doing so with a certain level of artistic, albeit sexy, tact.
There are also a few black models for this very magazine who do the same types of poses. But she did not include them.
So, speak on it. Does Nicki have a point? Or is she comparing apples to oranges?

Keyshia Cole's husband Daniel "Boobie" Gibson has an imposter. And apparently, the imposter filed divorce papers. Deets inside...
Keyshia and Boobie are STILL technically married, after talking divorce for over a year now. While the two are indeed separated, neither have pulled the actual divorce trigger. That is until some shady paperwork was filed in L.A. County Superior Court last week.
TMZ says they got a hold of the alleged divorce docs, supposedly filed by Daniel, and things took a turn from there. The site reports:
So Boobie not only has an "imposter", but the imposter is filing divorce papers? Hmmmm...
Keyshia also told the site she still plans to move forward with the divorce.
Odd as hell. But not totally impossible. The couple, who share son DJ, seem to be taking their time pulling the trigger. So does that mean there's hope for a reunion? Well, no one saw Boobie's ex-teammate LeBron James reuniting with Cleveland. So anything is possible.
Time will tell...

Two of our favorite "Hit The Floor" stars Logan Browning and Rob Riley were spotted at Russell Simmons' All Def Comedy Live show. See their pics inside and check out another sexy eye candy worthy shot of Rob Riley and McKinley Freeman.
"Hit The Floor" star Logan Browning was among the celebs spotted out in Hollywood at The Famous Chinese Mann Theatre for the weekly Russell Simmons presents All Def Comedy Live show.
Logan, the sexy "Hit The Floor" villian, laughed it up in the front row with her yummy co-star Rob Riley.
Promoter Miss Diddy posed it up with Rob too.
While we've been fans of Rob since DAY ONE, he and co-star McKinley Freeman made millions swoon when their fictional photo shoot a la ESPN's "Body Issue" went viral.
We came across another pic from Rob and McKinley's photo shoot. Check out more on our Instagram page (@TheYBFDaily).

They have finally broken their silence. French Montana and his now confirmed main chick Khloe Kardashian are finally admitting what we all already knew in their first-ever joint interview. Find out what French shared about how they first met and what Khloe said about teasing her beau with sex. All inside…
Bad Boy rapper French Montana (who is still legally married) and Khloe Kardashian have been attached at the hip since we first spotted them hugged up together as they made their way into a strip club back in April.
Although the two have been practically everywhere together (and we do mean everywhere), they have remained mum on the REAL status of their “relationship.” Over the last 3 months, the twosome has been spotted partying together in Vegas & Atlanta (with Khloe looking a tad out of her element), on a date night with Khloe's sister Kourtney and her boyfriend Scott , toting guns on French's music video set and totally all over each other at Khloe’s lavish 30th birthday bash, complete with $100,000 worth of gifts…all paid for by French (allegedly).
Now they’re finally ready to share their love--which they previously denied--with the world in their first-ever joint interview. French and KoKo kicked it in the studio with new addition Angie Martinez on Power 105.1 to chit-chat a bit about their budding relationship. Why now, you ask? Khloe's got a reality show airing currently on E! whose ratings aren't as great as they used to be. And French...well, why wouldn't he pounce on a chance to get some pub?
During the interview, French let us in on who actually introduced them to one another. French divulged that his Bad Boy boss Diddy/Puff Daddy was the one behind their relationship.
"Chillin"? Mmhmm. The “Pop That” rapper, dressed in all white and seemingly nervous, also revealed he’s currently observing Ramadan. He’s fasting and can’t eat anything after sunrise and before 8pm, no drinking alcohol, no smoking…and NO sex. Hmph.
Seems Khloe is suffering from withdrawals. When Angie asked how she’s handling Ramadan, she sarcastically responds,
Angie says, “You can technically torture him right now.” Khloe responds,
Now that it seems they both are finally ready to let everyone in on their love life, KoKo had a few words for those who don’t agree with who she’s currently dating. She said,
Well, when people get involved with married folks who allegedly abandon their children...
French and Khloe also talked about being in the studio with Kanye West, working on his new album, appearing on "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," handling his new found fame, how funny French is behind closed doors and more.
Check it (Khloe comes on at the 17:30 mark):

In our model roundup, we got pics of Matt Kemp and Chanel Iman modeling for GAP and Jourdan Dunn hosting a party for French Connection. More inside...
LA Dodgers hottie Matt Kemp stars in a new fall campaign for Gap Factory Store alongside hot model Chanel Iman. And we've got the first pics:
Matt, who's still owed about $114 million through 2019 on his Dodgers contract, is in talks for a trade. So far, The Red Sox, Indians, Mariners and Rangers have all shown interest. No matter where he goes....he's got a reason smile.
You'll recall that Chanel is allegedly engaged to rapper A$AP Rocky, but doesn't she look all cute with Matt too? Hmmm...
The fall 2014 campaign is dubbed “Exclusively Styled” and features "Fashion Police" star George Kotsiopoulos as the brand’s style editor and curator of the shoot.
And speaking of models:
British-born beauty Jourdan Dunn turned heads in a high waisted pencil skirt and a white Les Benjamins crop top at the French Connection #NeverMissATrick launch party last night. Jourdan's crop top read ‘Cara Made Me Do It!’ and pays homage to her bff model Cara Delevingne.
"Label free" rapper Azealia Banks posed with BBC personality Pips Taylor and MTV UK personality Lilah Parsons. FYI - Azealia Banks may not be on the radio in the US, but she's a huge star in Europe. #noshade
Jourdan also posed with skateboarder/tattoo artist Jimmy Q.

She was spotted being whisked down the carpet in her white heels by good riend and business associate Kevin Liles:
Good to see her out of her hot tub and dressed on a carpet. She was there to cheer on her homie and producer of the movie, Brett Ratner. She tweeted:

Eddie Murphy brought his young girlfriend Paige in the mix.
And The Rock also had a pretty young date--his daughter Simone. Fom Hercules to daddy. Sweet!

Lil Scrappy's family vacay with Emani and Momma D turned sour because of some allegedly racist employees at a Nickelodeon resort. Watch the tape inside and see Common and Jhene Aiko performing "Blak Majik."
You can't mess with folks kids! "LAHH ATL" star Lil Scrappy was captured confronting a Nickelodeon Suites Resort employee in Orlando after she allegedly passed over his daughter Emani during a show.
Momma D (also shown in the tape trying to calm the Prince down) told TMZ the Scrappy was upset because the staff kept skipping over his daughter and other black kids. SIBEBAR: This ish isn't too far fetched as a Black family sued Disneyland last year after one of the "characters" refused to hug the Black kids.
In the tape, you'll see Momma D AND Emani stepping in to calm Scrappy down. Momma D says Scrappy told the host "You need to pick my daughter. This is some racist-ass s**t." And get this....the person shooting the video told TMZ that they AGREED with Scrappy!
A rep for the resort told TMZ that they don't discriminate on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin..... and that Scrappy's daughter did participate in the show. Umm hmmm.
Watch the clip:
On late night....
Common promoted the release of his 10th disc, Nobody's Smiling, with a performance of “Blak Majik” featuring Jhené Aiko on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night. You copped Nobody's Smiling yet?
