And the Award for Creepiest Album Cover Goes To...

...Nicki Minaj for her album Pink Friday.

The concept: an abused Barbie doll. With no arms and grotesquely stretched legs.

According to the photographer, GL Wood:

"Nicki wanted to rip her arms off to really do the whole Barbie theme, like when little girls trash their dolls. She wanted to look like one of those broken Barbies."
Wood also says that few female artists are pushing the envelope these days like Ms. Minaj.

I don't know. I have two young girls and probably two dozen Barbie dolls in the house. Not one of them is missing its arms and has its legs stretched out like the album cover. The worst that happens to the dolls in my house is they end up laying around with no clothes on–but all their limbs are intact.

The Pink Friday cover is just creepy.
