Later, Minaj appeared as Kim Kardashian on Weekend Update to discuss her famous nude photos featured in Paper Magazine. The sketch featured Minaj recreating several of the photos with comical new backgrounds, including a visit to the gynecologist and math competition.

“The entire thing was completely misinterpreted,” Minaj said in her best Kardashian voice. “They forgot to put the backgrounds in, so the photos are completely out of context.”
Minaj’s recent appearance on SNL, her second time as the show’s musical guest, arrived ahead of her third album, The Pinkprint, which is scheduled for release on Dec. 15. For her first musical performance, Minaj wore all red and brought out Skylar Grey to help perform the ballad “Bed of Lies.” For her second performance the rapper delivered a medley of "All Things Go" and "Only” while wearing a sexy see-through black outfit.
Minaj last appeared on SNL in 2011 to promote her Pink Friday singles "Right Thru Me" and "Moment 4 Life.” She also participated in a sketch for The Lonely Island’s "The Creep,” where she rapped about creeping on boys in the locker room, and another called "Bride of Blackenstein" skit, in which she was created as a bride for Keenan Thompson's Black Frankenstein character.
