Nicki Minaj says she’s still retiring.. Maybe

Written by on October 23, 2019

The Shade Room has dropped a new interview with Nicki Minaj in which the supposedly-retired rapper discusses her relationship with new boyfriend Kenneth Petty, whether they’ll tie the knot soon, and if her retirement is for real. However, after the discussion there’s still very little clarity as to whether she is or isn’t retiring!

“When I posted that retirement tweet, I knew that I still had music that I already had recorded that was still gonna come out, so the retirement was kinda talking about [whether] I wanna go back and record my fifth album,” Minaj tells TSR in the interview.

“I always get asked to do features and I like features. So it was really about my fifth album.”

“Where do I stand with it now? I didn’t know my fans were gonna act like that with the tweet, and it hurt my feelings because it felt like the way I did it was insensitive to my fans,” she continues. “I didn’t know it was gonna be that big of a deal, so that’s why I deleted it.”

You know when you’re a little girl and you want this big beautiful wedding, and I used to think I was one of those girls, I always wanted the fairytale. But then the things that used to matter to you don’t matter as much because I remember wanting those things with people, where real love wasn’t there. So now I feel like now that everything has finally lined up and matched up being that I’m madly in love with this man, he’s also my best friend, the things that used to matter to me before, don’t matter as much now. So yes, we’re going to have a big wedding eventually.” She also expressed how deeply in love she is right now, and the importance of——click the link in the bio to read more at

Earlier this year, Minaj shocked fans by tweeting that she was retiring in order to focus on having a family, a statement that directly contradicted the rapper’s announcement that she had a new project coming soon with a “dope” executive producer attached. Since the announcement of her retirement, Minaj has appeared on songs by PnB Rock and DaBaby, and has been announced to appear with Normani and Ariana Grande on the new Charlie’s Angels soundtrack.
