No More Nicki?

Retiring So Soon? Our hearts! In a very cryptic message that Nicki posted on Twitter, she tweeted: “I have 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.”

If you’re just as confused as we were, we’ve got the tea!

The cryptic message left fans speculating, but a source has confirmed that despite the blatant tweet, Nicki is far from retirement! (What a relief!) She has recently been working on new music for her next album, and we hope it hits platforms soon, but what was the meaning behind her not-so-subtle tweet? 


Apparently it was a reference to the singer’s plans to start a family with her boyfriend of nine months, Kenneth “Zoo” Petty. The pair started dating back in December 2018 and despite a lot of controversy, the two seem to be going strong. 


Minaj raised a lot of eyebrows in December when she made their relationship public, mainly because her new beau is a registered sex offender. Yes, you read that right. However, Nicki is backing her man. She defended him on Instagram with a post that reads: “He was 15, she was 16 … in a relationship [in the rape case]. But go awf, Internet. Y’all can’t run my life. Y’all can’t even run y’all own life. Thank you boo.”


We know what you’re wondering. Why would Nicki defend a guy that she’s only known for a few months? Well, they actually go way back. The duo dated back when Nicki was a teenager and only got back together again recently. According to sources, Kenneth has got her heartbeat runnin’ away and she cannot wait to start a family with him. 

Nicki has been very vocal about her want for children in the past and in an interview with Complex she said: “I have definitely put off the wife thing because I don’t want people in my business. I’d rather not do anything that’s going to be on paper but I definitely will be married before I have my baby. I want to make sure I do it in that order. I’ve always felt like that since I was young; my mother always put that in my head. By the fifth album, I will have walked down the aisle and I will at least be on baby No. 1, possibly baby No. 2. And have $500 million.”

Steal her Style

In Nicki’s own words, “I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive. I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise, to fly,” and she’s doing just that.

Never mind the haters, we’re glad Nicki’s in this Moment 4 Life with us & hopefully releasing new music soon!
