Move over, Nicki Minaj! There’s a new bootylicious babe in town and it’s none other than … Ellen? Yes, the hilarious daytime talk show host took to her Instagram on Sept. 4 to share a silly pic of herself twerking for Nicki in a new promo for her show. We love it!
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Ellen DeGeneres just paid Nicki Minaj, 31, the ultimate compliment with her sidesplitting new selfie spoof of the rapper’s now infamous “Anaconda” video. Check it out!
Ellen DeGeneres’ Nicki Minaj Spoof: Host Shares Funny ‘Anaconda’ Photo
Nicki certainly looks impressed with Ellen’s goodies! In the comedian’s super silly selfie, she’s shown bending over for Nicki while wearing frayed denim cutoffs, a white vest and giant gold hoop earrings. Nicki is looking on approvingly as she gives Ellen playful pats on the butt.
Ellen, 56, shared the Photoshopped pic on the Instagram page for The Ellen DeGeneres Show, along with the message: “This is happening. Five more days until the season premiere. #Anaconda.”
Ellen, we almost forgot how funny you are. Almost. We can’t wait for more laughs on the Season 12 premiere of The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Sept. 8!
Nicki Minaj Admits She Wanted ‘Big Booty’ Dancers In ‘Anaconda’ Video
Nicki admitted in a recent interview with HollywoodLife.com that she purposely picked backup dancers with big bottoms to star in her racy “Anaconda” video. We guess Ellen missed that ad.
“I wanted girls with big booties. So that was one of the requirements, actually, for the dancers,” Nicki explained to HollywoodLife.com. “I wanted a jungle theme. I wanted the girls to feel like we were all in a part of the world where all of the girls look like that. I wanted an ocean scene. I thought that would be sexy. And I just wanted a video with a lot of different looks and I wanted to do some dance in it.”
We think Nicki totally nailed it — and so did Ellen!
So HollywoodLifers, do YOU think Ellen’s new pic is funny? Let us know!
