Early Wednesday morning, Nicki Minaj dropped the music video for "Anaconda," and it's basically got us all thinking one thing.
It's really hard not to just quote the song, but look at that butt, is pretty much the only thought that will be going through your head. Nicki has been teasing the video over the course of a the last week now, and we can't say that we're disappointed. It's already gotten over 2 million views.
Check out the ass-tonishing video here:
As expected, Twitter basically exploded.
#AnacondaVideoOnVevo was trending almost immediately, as well as Bruh Nicki Minaj and Drake.

Fans of country superstar Garth Brooks have been left frustrated after high demand for access to his comeback concerts in Atlanta, Georgia caused a top ticketing website to crash. The Friends In Low Places hitmaker announced plans for his first big tour in 13 years last month (Jul14) and he recently revealed he will grace the stage at the city's Philips Arena on 19 September (14).
Tickets for the show sold out immediately after going on sale on Friday morning (08Aug14), prompting promoters to quickly add two additional gigs for a later, second set on 19 September and another on 20 September (14).
Devotees rushed to grab tickets for the extra concerts on Ticketmaster.com, but the huge surge of web customers was too much for the site to handle, causing it to shut down.
Sales were subsequently suspended to allow Ticketmaster bosses time to resolve the issue and Brooks admits he is disappointed at the way the situation has been handled as fans are still waiting for tickets to go live again.
Speaking on a local radio station, he said, "At this point I can't say anything. "What I want to say to you is we're going to do it right next time and I don't know why it's taking so long for anything to happen.
"Ticketmaster will figure this out and tell me. Tell (the fans) for me that I love them to pieces... I don't feel like we were prepared...
"I say we need to take a break and regroup because if we get a second shot we can't ... mess that up."
Dog adoption officials insisted on checking out John Legend's tour bus before agreeing to let the All Of Me singer and his model wife Chrissy Teigen sign on to take charge of a three-legged dog. The couple fell in love with Penny at a Los Angeles shelter, but bosses there were far from convinced the couple would make perfect pet owners and asked to tour Legend's home on wheels, where the pooch would spend part of her life.
Teigen explains, "We filled out an application and the woman from the rescue was like, 'Well, I know you're a musician and I know musicians are into drugs...' She goes, 'I need to see John's motor home'.
"She came on the tour bus - John was touring through Savannah (Georgia) - checked it out to make sure there were no loose wires or meth or whatever. Penny was a serious purchase."
Actor Tracy Morgan has left a rehabilitation centre following the horrific traffic accident last month (Jun14) that left him in intensive care. The 30 Rock star was seriously injured when a Walmart truck slammed into the back of the limousine he was travelling in in New Jersey, killing his colleague James 'Jimmy Mack' McNair and hospitalising several others along with Morgan.
He was moved to a physical rehabilitation centre after his condition was upgraded from critical to fair, and editors at TMZ.com now report the TV star has been discharged from the facility and will continue his recovery at home.
A representative for Morgan tells the website, "He (Tracy) asked me to pass along his sincerest gratitude to everyone who has helped him get to this point."
Driver Kevin Roper stands accused of falling asleep at the wheel and causing the multi-vehicle accident, and Morgan has filed a lawsuit against Walmart for negligence, alleging company bosses should have known Roper had been awake for more than 24 hours and that his drive from his home in Georgia to work in Delaware was "unreasonable".
Roper denies charges of vehicular homicide and assault by auto.
More than a hundred well-wishers gathered in New Jersey on Monday night (07Jul14) to hold a prayer vigil for a comedian injured in a car crash with Tracy Morgan last month (Jun14). Ardie Fuqua was among those hurt in the 7 June (14) traffic accident which killed comic writer James 'Jimmy Mack' McNair and left fellow funnyman Morgan fighting for his life after the limousine they were travelling in collided with a truck.
The 30 Rock star was recently transferred from hospital to a rehabilitation facility, while his pal Fuqua, 43, who sustained a brain injury, is also facing a long recovery in rehab.
Fuqua was the focus of a prayer meeting and candlelit vigil held on the street where he lives in Jersey City on Monday, a month after the horrific crash. His friends, family members and neighbours were among those who turned out holding candles, and the street was adorned with green and black ribbons.
Reverend Dorothy Patterson, of Fuqua's family church, led the service and told the Jersey Journal newspaper, "We wanted to just gather as a community, as a family, just to let (the Fuqua family) know that there are people all over praying for them... It's a very close community. Ardie was born and raised on this block, so they all know him," while the funnyman's father, Ardie Fuqua Sr., adds "(It) lets me know that the people care. It lets me know that the people see me when I don't think they see me."
Kevin Roper, 35, from Georgia, has pleaded guilty to a number of charges stemming from the deadly crash. He was driving a truck for U.S. superstore Walmart and is accused of falling asleep at the wheel.
Actor Eric Dane proposed to his wife Rebecca Gayheart on a whim after she dared him to make her his wife. The Grey's Anatomy star reveals he was terrified to pop the question to Gayheart, but insists it was the best decision he made because the impulsive gesture led to a wedding that night.
He explains, "We were having dinner at a restaurant and she asked me if I ever did anything impulsive and I said, 'Like what? Ask someone to marry me?' and she said, 'Yeah, something like that,' and I said, 'Do you want to marry me...?'
"I was terrified and she said, 'Yes,' I said, 'Cheque,' we got the cheque, jumped in my car, we got the last flight out of Los Angeles to Las Vegas. We've been happily married ever since and we have two beautiful little girls."
The couple eloped in 2004. The stars are parents to daughters Billie, four, and Georgia, two.
The Kinks rocker Ray Davies was forced to miss his induction into America's Songwriters Hall of Fame on Thursday (12Jun14) following the death of his sister. The musician was one of the big names selected by museum officials in May (14) but he skipped the ceremony in New York City after his sibling Joyce passed away.
The Waterloo Sunset hitmaker accepted the honour via video, and he also took to Facebook.com to write, "I am profoundly honoured to have been inducted into the American Songwriters Hall of Fame and disappointed not to have been at the event in New York but I felt it necessary to be near my family at this sad time of my sisters (sic) funeral.
"I wish to thank everyone at the Songwriters Hall of Fame who voted for me and give a special thanks to all the loyal Kinks fans who have stood by us all these years. I hope to repay such loyal support by trying my best to continue to write songs in the future that are worthy of such an accolade."
Jon Bon Jovi was on hand to pay tribute to Davies at the ceremony, performing his hits You Really Got Me and All Day and All of the Night at the end of the show.
Other acts honoured included Scottish singer Donovan, Graham Gouldman of the band 10cc, singer/songwriter Mark James, who penned Elvis Presley's Suspicious Minds, and Jim Weatherly, who is known for writing Gladys Knight & The Pips hits Neither One of Us and Midnight Train to Georgia.
Performers such as Miguel, Chita Rivera, Chubby Checker and Jackie Evancho also took to the stage at the event.
Music producer-turned-reality TV star Stevie J has been released on $25,000 (£15,625) bond following his arrest in Georgia for allegedly failing to pay over $1 million (£625,000) in child support payments. The Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star was taken into custody on Monday (09Jun14) after he was accused of failing to pay an ex-girlfriend a total of $1,107,412 (£692,132) in back child support for their two children.
Following his release on Wednesday (11Jun14), he told the Associated Press, "It feels great. I'm home with my wife. I'm just ready to get this behind me."
In 1999, Stevie J, who used to date rapper Eve, was ordered to pay nearly $6,600 (£4,125) per month in child support and in 2011, the amount was increased to $8,600 (£5,375).
Prosecutors claim he has not sent any payments for several years, but his lawyer, Daniel Meachum, insists the allegations are false.
Meachum says, "We plan on proving that if there is an amount owed, it is definitely not a million dollars, nor anything close to that amount."
Former 90210 star Annalynne Mccord took her own virginity at the age of 12 with a sex toy because she was terrified about going to hell if she had intercourse before marriage. The actress' father was a strict Georgia pastor who drilled the shame of sex into his daughters at an early age. Her religious upbringing affected her views on sex and when her sister started talking about the birds and the bees, Annalynne decided to take her own virginity.
In a new interview with Access Hollywood she explains, "I associated (sex) and this is probably tapping into what Sigmund Freud has always said, which is that everything in life is about sex except for sex, and that's about power. And for me it was about power, it was about, 'No one's gonna take this from me'." Sex became a big part of McCord's life after she persuaded her parents to let her move to Miami, Florida to pursue a modelling career in her teens.
She had her first "down there" sexual experience with a 29-year-old boyfriend when she was just 15, insisting he knew how old she was. McCord also recently opened up about a rape experience in Hollywood when she was 18, and today she blames her strict upbringing for her confusion about sex, adding, "What I took from the spankings was... 'Those who love me hit me' was played over in my mind and acted out in my life time and time again in my formative years. So my brain was formed around this belief system. It was a core thought system. "There was no question of whether it was right or wrong or made sense. It was just the way it was. That was just it... 'I'm not enjoying it because it's not painful enough'. It's crazy."
