WATCH: Ellen DeGeneres and More Try to Recreate Nicki Minaj's 'Anaconda' Moves

Posted on

Sir Mix-A-Lot already gave Nicki Minaj’s "Anaconda" his big booty blessing, but now other stars are stepping up to show their support.

Ellen DeGeneres recently slipped into a butt pad and a pair of cutoff denim shorts to make her own version of Minaj’s hit. In the clip, Degeneres is added into “Anaconda”‘s original music video, alongside Minaj and her squad of bodacious dancers. The Ellen host does her best to pop, drop and shake it like the rapper, but DeGeneres’s college try is no match for Minaj’s moves.

The comedian isn’t the only one out to conquer the rump-rumbling dance. Minaj herself stopped by New York Fashion Week to help the Alexander Wang models master her steps. Well, maybe master isn’t the right word …

Minaj probably won’t be recruiting Wang’s models as backup dancers, but she should seriously consider the two guys below. Inspired by the big bass of “Anaconda,” this pair broke out the fancy foot work and made up their own moves to go along with the song.

Then, there are the people you can’t please. Minaj’s booty anthem may be lovingly imitated by teens, fashion models and TV darlings, but this grandma wants nothing to do with any of it.
