If you’re anything like me, you have been probably been having a medium-grade heart attack since Nicki Minaj bluntly announced on Twitter yesterday that she would be retiring from music to “have [her] family.”
Well Barbies, put your paper bags down for a beat, because Nicki says she's going to give us a full explanation.
People reports that the 36-year-old “Megatron” rapper took some time to address her fans’ collective meltdown. One follower on Twitter wrote to Nicki asking for more information about "this retirement thing," even adding that she had "never let [the fans] so hurt."
Nicki responded lovingly, saying, "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."
She even addressed the original tweet, saying it was, “abrupt & insensitive, I apologize babe.”
We can’t stay mad at you, Nicki.
Though we might've expected that Nicki would be slipping off into marital and familial bliss soon with all the rumors about her upcoming wedding, I don’t think anyone expected that she would be fully retiring.
While her tweet was the bandaid fans needed for now, we also definitely need that Queen Radio talk to happen…and soon.
