    The release of Nicki Minaj's new album has been up in the air for a while.

    Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" video has been unavoidable over the last few weeks, setting a record for the most VEVO views in 24 hours, and steadily climbing since. As it turns out, as much as many have clearly studied the video over the last few weeks, the moves are not exactly easy to pull off. Nicki hit up Alexander Wang's Spring 2015 Fashion Show Saturday night, and got the chance to school some models on the choreography of her new video. While showing admirable effort, the runway stars simply couldn't keep up with Nicki, but really, few can.

    Nicki Minaj was one of the main highlights at last night’s MTV Video Music Award’s, but not only because she graced the stage a few times, but because she pulled out her best Janet Jackson impersonation and had quite the wardrobe malfunction. At the top of the show, Nicki performed her new hit single “Anaconda”, and while transitioning into her performance of “Bang Bang” alongside Ariana Grande & Jesse J, Nicki walked back out on stage holding her black YSL dress top closed by hand. Yes, she literally held her top closed the entire performance.

    Anacondas don't want none unless you got buns, hun -- or at least so it seems from a new report of a snake biting one of Nicki Minaj's booty-ful backup dancers during a VMA rehearsal. TMZ says that a run-through of "Anaconda" before Sunday night's ceremony left a dancer hospitalized after a six foot long snake (allegedly an actual anaconda) bit her "in front of everyone."

The insane count actually broke VEVO's record for most views withing a one day stretch, beating out Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop", which previously held the top spot with 12.3 million.

    The hype around Nicki Minaj's ass-tastic "Anaconda" cover art was pretty substantial, but when clips from the video arrived, it was clear the Young Money rapper was taking things to the next level. Last night, The Pinkprint emcee shut the internet down with the full length clip, which found her and a few friends shaking it in the jungle, the kitchen, and the gym, which had us looking a bit like Drake in the closing moments of the video.

    Has the King of Pop been dethroned? Well, if you consider the Hot 100 to be the key signifier of pop success, Michael Jackson's just lost the his spot to Nicki Minaj. His total of 50 songs on the chart (across his nearly four-decade-long career, I might add) has Nicki's "Anaconda," her 51st Hot 100 single, to thank for getting bested.

    When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music.
