Nicki Minaj was spotted at LAX on Wednesday afternoon and the rapper made it very clear she did not want her photo taken.
As Minaj made her way through the airport, paparazzi captured the rapper sporting all black with a black sweatshirt covering her entire face. The star also toted around a pink teddy bear while being escorted by an associate.

Nicki came under fire last week for displaying an image of Malcolm X holding a gun on the cover of her new track, “Lookin A** Ni**a.” Since the release of the track, the rapper is apologized for the cover art that many called offensive and inappropriate.
“What seems to be the issue now? Do you have a problem with me referring to the people Malcolm X was ready to pull his gun out on as Lookin A** N*ggaz? Well, I apologize,” Minaj wrote on Instagram. “That was never the official artwork nor is this an official single,” she explained. “This is a conversation. Not a single. I am in the video shooting at “Lookin A** Niggaz” and there happened to be an iconic photo of Malcolm X ready to do the same thing for what he believed in!!!! It is in no way to undermine his efforts and legacy. I apologize to the Malcolm X estate if the meaning of the photo was misconstrued. The word “n*gga” causes so much debate in our community while the “n*gga” behavior gets praised and worship. Let’s not. Apologies again to his family. I have nothing but respect an adoration for u. The photo was removed hours ago. Thank you.”
