5 Things Nicki Minaj’s V Cover Reminds Us Of — Besides Juggalos


We don’t blame our pals at Buzzfeed for saying Nicki Minaj looks like a Juggalo on the cover of V. We can definitely see the resemblance. But, despite Juggalos’ ubiquity these days, we were actually reminded of a whole lot of other face-painted cultural touchstones. After the jump, five other characters the cover brought to mind.

1. Keith Haring’s Untitled (body painting), 1984 [via]

2. Ke$ha’s insane “Your Love Is My Drug” body paint situation

3. The first slayer on Buffy

4. Peter Criss from KISS

5. Various members of The Misfits
