Nicki Minaj has apologised via Twitter for any offence the controversial video for her new single ‘Only’ may have caused.

Nicki MinajMinaj has been criticised for her latest video, 'Only'

The video dropped over the weekend and features Nicki along with collaborators Drake, Lil Wayne and Chris Brown in animated form. In the clip Nicki is depicted as a military leader, as lyrics from the song flash up on screen.

However some questioned the video’s use of what looked like Nazi imagery. On Monday (Novemeber 10th) the Anti-Defamation League’s director, Holocaust survivor Abraham H. Foxman, released a statement saying saying, "Nicki Minaj’s new video disturbingly evokes Third Reich propaganda and constitutes a new low for pop culture’s exploitation of Nazi symbolism.”

“It is troubling that no one among Minaj's group of producers, publicists and managers raised a red flag about the use of such imagery before ushering the video into public release,” Foxman continued.

But now the rapper has finally addressed the controversy, writing on Twitter, "The artist who made the lyric video for "Only" was influenced by a cartoon on Cartoon Network called Metalocalypse & Sin City.”

"Both the producer, & person in charge of over seeing the lyric video (one of my best friends & videographer: A. Loucas), happen to be Jewish,” she continued.

“I didn't come up w/the concept, but I'm very sorry & take full responsibility if it has offended anyone. I'd never condone Nazism in my art.”
