Nicki Minaj responded to the questions surrounding her absence from the Video Music Awards and Met Gala. She admitted to fans that she recently tested positive for COVID-19.
On Monday, the "Moment For Life" rapper spoke candidly on Twitter, stating that she contracted the virus while preparing for the VMA's and shooting a music video. Nicki says that quarantining caused her to spend a week away from her baby boy, which was extremely difficult for the new mom.
Love u babe. I was prepping for vmas then i shot a video & guess who got COVID? Do u know what it is not to be able to kiss or hold your tiny baby for over a week? A baby who is only used to his mama? “get vaccinated” Drake had just told me he got covid w|THE VACCINE tho so chile https://t.co/wInXoJcHBn— Nicki Minaj (@NICKIMINAJ) September 13, 2021
The Barbz immediately chimed in, telling Nicki to take the COVID-19 vaccine, which has been at the center of controversy since its conception. However, she let it be known that she is not sold on the vaccine and wants to do more research before taking it.
They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. if I get vaccinated it won’t for the Met. It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research. I’m working on that now. In the meantime my loves, be safe. Wear the mask with 2 strings that grips your head & face. Not that loose one 🙏♥️— Nicki Minaj (@NICKIMINAJ) September 13, 2021
After some back and forth, Nicki says she would likely take the vaccine at some point to continue touring but maintains no one should be pressured into taking it.
I know babe. A lot of countries won’t let ppl work w/o the vaccine. I’d def recommend they get the vaccine. They have to feed their families. I’m sure I’ll b vaccinated as well cuz I have to go on tour, etc. https://t.co/7SK5Df0yBf— Nicki Minaj (@NICKIMINAJ) September 13, 2021
