It took a speaker box and a pair of platform wedges, but Nicki Minaj has managed to best basketball giant Kobe Bryant in the height stakes.
The unlikely couple – she 5’2” and he 6’6” – appear on the cover of ESPN Magazine‘s forthcoming Music Issue, which also focuses on the upcoming 2014 Super Bowl and 10 year anniversary of Janet Jackson‘s infamous wardrobe malfunction.
In an exclusive first look of the magazine – which hits stands this Friday, January 24 – the pair team up for a cosy photo shoot and talk about their respective careers.
‘I don’t care what profession you’re in – It’s hard to have elite success year after year, over and over,’ Bryant, who has been sidelined from the LA Lakers following knee surgery, told the magazine.
Height aside, the two – both in their early thirties – are indisputable stars of their chosen fields.
Among the other cover couplings for the mag are Detriot Lions star Calvin Johnson and Eminem and NBA player Chris Paul and hip hop artist Kendrick Lamar.
ESPN The Magazine have marked the 10-year anniversary of the most famous Super Bowl performance, Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake in 2004, with a retrospective story on ‘Nipplegate’ and its aftermath.
The Super Bowl takes place on Sunday February 1.
ESPN The Magazine’s Music Issue will have live content tomorrow (Wednesday) at www.espn.com/musicissue, while the magazine is on sale from Friday January 24.
