Nicki Minaj - No Frauds (feat. Drake and Lil Wayne)

Nicki Minaj criticised over Westminster Bridge scenes in No Frauds video

The video for "No frauds", which features Drake and Lil Wayne, includes a lot of footage captured in the city.

The royal vid followed a jewel-encrusted Minaj dancing and grunting her way through scenic spots around London - including one shot on the Westminster Bridge.

Nicki Minaj, 34, drew the ire of the Twittersphere after releasing the flashy new video for her song "No Frauds", which featured footage of the star on London's Westminster Bridge - the site of the March deadly terror attack.

One fan sent a message to the singer, saying: "I'm gonna find that wall by Westminster bridge and sit on it just like you".

After the attack, The Sun reported that the rapper had chose to leave the scenes out for being "inappropriate".

Five were killed and 40 were left injured after the attack, which, according to reports, took place the day after Nicki filmed.

Nicki has yet to respond to the criticism, but as she shared a link to the video online, she told her followers: "Honored to have shot this video in London", along with a praying hands emoji.

It sees the American rapper using the Westminster Bridge as a backdrop as well as the Houses of Parliament and even the Battle of Britain monument on the Embankment. "Sending my condolences to the victims" families'.

The footage was captured the day before attacker Khalid Masood killed three pedestrians with his auto, before fatally stabbing a police officer on March 22.

"When everybody involved in the project heard the news they were devastated and thought it would be in bad taste to feature it", said the source to the UK-based publication.
