Minaj and Picasso

Check out the bold, bare-breasted outfits Nicki Minaj wore at the Paris Fashion Week Fall 2017 (Women’s) from February 28 to March 08!

Immediately, it drew comparisons to Lil Kim‘s similar bold, bare-breasted 1999 MTV Video Music Awards ensemble, and to a lesser extent, Janet Jackson’s infamous wardrobe malfunction at Super Bowl 38 in 2004.

But the Queens star took to Instagram on Sunday and hinted that the inspiration for the outfit came from famed artist Pablo Picasso.

In fact, she posted an image of Picasso’s La Femme à l’Éventail painting, which featured a female subject with her left breast exposed.

Please don’t get offended. Many of Picasso's paintings prominently show women’s bare breasts:
