NICKI Minaj has faced criticism from unimpressed fans after she featured scenes filmed on London's Westminster Bridge in her new music video.

The rap star had filmed the scenes for her new track No Frauds just a day before the tragic terror attack took place last month.

Nicki, 34, can be seen rapping to the camera in a black and silver-beaded corset and headdress while shots panning across Westminster are played.

The Trinidadian rap star also sits on the wall at the edge of the bridge while singing the feisty words to the camera.

One fan mused: "@NICKIMINAJ by Westminster Bridge in her new vid... too soon?”

Nicki had been seen filming the scene for her video which also features Drake and Lil Wayne just a day before the tragic attack.

But it had been claimed Nicki felt the scenes were no longer appropriate to use after the attack as a source said: "When everybody involved in the project heard the news they were devastated and thought it would be in bad taste to feature it.

"The other London scenes will remain, but it's highly doubtful the bridge footage will make the cut.”

After the attack, Nicki paid a Twitter tribute to the five victims who lost their lives.

She wrote: "May God protect everyone in London.

"Hate hearing this sad news. Sending my condolences to the victims' families.”
