Minaj in "Anaconda" isn't just someone who's desired; she's someone who desires, which means that she has an identity. She's both the consumable and the consumer consuming the consumable. Lo grabbing each other, it's easy to see it as a come on to a female audience as well. The "Booty" video may be mindless titillation, but the mindless titillation seems deliberately aimed at women as well as men. As with butts, girl-girl subtext isn't some new trend, of course. This isn't to say that the video is somehow breaking boundaries. That Mixalot sample isn't just Minaj claiming to be the kind of woman Mixalot wants; it's Minaj claiming she wants that kind of woman too.

Butts and female-female eroticism go together because butts and female eroticism are both things that most guys like to see. This isn't to say that the video is somehow breaking boundaries. She's both the consumable and the consumer consuming the consumable.
