Nicki Minaj claims Sharon Osbourne is a ''hypocrite'' for criticising her sexy single cover.

The rap artist - who is currently dating Meek Mill - saw her racy 'Anaconda' promo cover, on which he wore just a pink G-string and sports bra get described as a ''cheap porno cover of a DVD'' during a discussion on chat show 'The Talk'.

However, Sharon, 64, described Kim's famous naked selfie as ''inspiring'' and went on to share her own snap, and Nicki says it's a joke.

Nicki told Marie Claire magazine: ''So it wasn't trashy and raunchy when a white woman did it but it was when a black woman did it?

''When Kim Kardashian's naked picture came out (Sharon) praised it and my fans attacked her for being such a hypocrite.''

Shortly after praising Kim's selfie - in which Sharon admitted made her feel ''liberated'' - Sharon posted a picture of herself which impersonated the reality star's viral selfie.

She later tweeted: ''@kimkardashian you inspired me! #liberated #thetalk (sic)''

Nicki said: ''It's quite pathetic and sad but that is my reality and I've gotten accustomed to just shutting it down.''
