Y’all need to sit down for this. Nicki Minaj just announced on Twitter that she is retiring from music—so she can start a family!
Members of Nicki Minaj’s fans, or “Barbz” as they like to call themselves, all over Twitter are freaking out over the news! Because today Nicki Minaj announced that she will be retiring from music to start a family! But is it official? Or is she just trolling us! Here’s everything we know so far!
Nothing good ever happens after 2 AM
So at 2 AM this morning, Nicki Minaj decided to shock everyone on Twitter by tweeting this:
I’ve decided to retire & have my family. I know you guys are happy now. To my fans, keep reppin me, do it til da death of me, ❌ in the box- cuz ain’t nobody checkin me. ✅ Love you for LIFE 😘♥️🦄

So there it is, straight to the point and in classic Nicki Minaj fashion. Nicki Minaj is retiring to start a family. And there’s no doubt in our minds she’ll have cute ass babies. But Nicki, come on, you’re a Queen! So surely you can do both? And we’re not alone in this sentiment. Her fans have been calling out to her asking if this was a joke.
SAY SIKE THERES STILL TIME

But she’s already replied to some of them, promising she’ll explain why she decided so suddenly. And that she’s “still right here.”
I’m still right here. Still madly in love with you guys & you know that. In hindsight, this should’ve been a Queen Radio discussion & it will be. I promise u guys will be happy. No guests, just us talking about everything. The tweet was abrupt & insensitive, I apologize babe ♥️🙏 https://t.co/eS0oHipwtg

Although Nicki Minaj has her boyfriend’s last name on her Twitter. There is no official news that they are married yet. But maybe they are married now? Because Kenneth Petty has been heard talking about getting a marriage license and not doing “the whole big-wedding” thing. So maybe Nicki is officially Mrs.Petty. We’ll just have to wait and see.
It seems like a lot of celebs are taking a break or leaving their careers to focus on family now. Why does it feel like 2019 is the year for adulting? Just look at Ed Sheeran, he’s also taking a break from music. Because we don’t really know what goes on in the minds of celebrities. They could be burned out AF for all we know. And it’s all part of adulting to acknowledge and remedy that. So whether or not Nicki Minaj is really retiring for good, or is just burned out and taking a really long break, let’s just be adults and deal with it.
We’ll definitely miss her serving looks and dropping beats, but we’ll always be here to support her if she decides to come back. And if this all just a hoax, shame on you for breaking our hearts Nicki!
