Can you name the celebrity in their childhood photos?
It may only be a Tuesday, but Nicki Minaj is already throwing it back.

As her new “Only” lyric video continues to generate backlash for its use of Nazi imagery, the rapper attempts to take our mind off her anti-semitism by sharing a glamor shot from her days as a fresh-faced teenager.

Oh, young Nicki. So innocent. So not stirring shit up by using genocide as entertainment.

“17,” she captions the photo. “I’m sitting here with the same look on my face right now.”

Hmm, that sure doesn’t seem like the face of someone who just had to publicly apologize for making light of the Holocaust. But that’s none of my business.
