Kathy Griffin to Minaj: I want a booty challenge

 

NEW YORK (AP) — While most people are inviting friends to complete the ice bucket challenge, Kathy Griffin has another proposal for Nicki Minaj: a booty challenge.

The 53-year-old comedian said after watching the eye-popping, rump-shaking music video for Minaj’s new hit single, “Anaconda,” she wants to go toe-to-toe with the rap diva.

“Of course, everyone’s talking about that ‘Anaconda’ video and it’s fantastic. It’s a lot of boo-tay and I would like to challenge Nicki to a boo-tay-off,” Griffin said in an interview this week.

The “Anaconda” video has racked in 35 million views since its Tuesday release and has trended on Twitter throughout the week.

“It’s like the ice bucket challenge, but it doesn’t even have any charity associated with it at all,” Griffin continued. “It’s completely gratuitous.”

Griffin also has some stiff competition when it comes to the music world apart from Minaj: She released a comedy album last week, and she hopes to mirror her success at the Grammy Awards earlier this year, where she won best comedy album for “Calm Down Gurrl” after five consecutive losses in the category.

“I’m going for another nomination, shamelessly,” said Griffin, who is only one of three women to win the honor.

Her likely opponents: “Weird Al” Yankovic, who had a pop culture moment this year with the chart-topping “Mandatory Fun,” which featured a stream of highly viewed — and highly praised — music videos. There’s also Sarah Silverman, who will release “We Are Miracles” on Sept. 23.

“We know each other’s game,” she said of Silverman. “Mine is two hours. I have a standing comedy disorder. Once I get onstage I can’t stop talking.”
