So, Nicki Minaj has a new album coming out, which has her on the cover in a thing. This rapidly spawned a meme.
So, I decided to take part. Many of the memes paste Nicki into famous art. Some are just childish. I tried to do some good and/or fun takes. The first two below she reposted on her Instragram (not linking back to me, I might add, but I digress).
The first one I did pastes Nicki into Michaelangelo's Sistine Chapel fresco. Here, instead of reaching out to Adam, he reaches out to Nicki's behind.
Nicki as the Statue of Liberty. Someone asked on Instragram why she is green? Because the freakin' Statue of Liberty is green, silly.
I am not sure who this artist is (I am too lazy to find out. Nicki takes the place of a cherub who's butt is turned toward the viewer.
This one I like because of the subtlety. Nicki is replacing Babi, the Egyptian baboon god of the dead and virility. Because of the Air Jordan shoes she wears in the picture, I decided to add the Air Jordan logo to the hieroglyphics.
Finally, I tried to recreate Picasso's "Blue Nude", a picture we have in our house. I am not a good painter, but like the overall effect. I closed her eyes and changed her hair to better match the original.
That's all for now. I may do more. I tag all my posts on Tumblr with "anaconda meme" here http://dariuswhiteplume.tumblr.com/tagged/anaconda-meme
