Nicki Minaj caused a stir with her titillating outfit at Paris Fashion Week over the weekend. As we previously reported, the Queen Barbz showed up wearing a black blouse which exposed her left breast with nothing but a pasty covering her nipple.

Fans were quick to point out that Minaj might have been copying Lil’ Kim's jaw-dropping outfit at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards. If you remember, Kim had one breast out, which Diana Ross playfully touched during the ceremony. Since the pair have a long history of feuding with each other, some people assumed that Minaj was mimicking Kim’s infamous fashion choice.

On Sunday (March 5), Minaj posted a photo which may have explained why she decided to wear such a daring outfit. In the picture above, the rap superstar reposted a photo by French fashion icon Caroline De Maigret. If you look closely, it's a 1907 painting by iconic painter Pablo Picasso, which resembles Minaj's look.

Minaj also posted a photo album of "positive" media stories regarding her PFW look. Maybe not so surprisingly, she didn't post any news stories which talks about her possibly channeling Lil Kim 1999 VMAs outfit.

Maybe Minaj is trying to tell us that she's unbothered by the gossip reports about her outfit. But it bears repeating -- where that's response song to Remy Ma? We are just saying.
