It isn’t uncommon for blogs to propagate false narratives about celebrities, it is uncommon however for global media broadcasters to perpetuate the narrative and further slander the individual without uncovering the truth.
Nicki Minaj found herself at the center of controversy after a snippet from a September 13 Twitter conversation with fans explaining her absence from the 2021 VMAs and Met Gala started trending as when major blogs posted an article eluding that Nicki was using her platform to spread anti vaccination discourse.
It further blew out of hand when a host on MSNBC Joy Anne Ried joined the train slamming Minaj and added her two cents saying that Minaj is using her platform to bring individuals closer to death. This article and narrative grew so big that even Piers Morgan and UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson entered the chat. With Piers joining the hate train.
However, if these figureheads had done any reading at all they would realize that it was a series of tweets at the end of which Nicki Minaj actually encouraged fans to get vaccinated because she herself would be taking the vaccine. Here’s the Twitter thread in sequence.
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
Babe. That’s not true. I had the exact same symptoms as ppl with the damn vaccine https://t.co/8Vg60ubZxx— Nicki Minaj (@NICKIMINAJ) September 13, 2021
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
My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent. His testicles became swollen. His friend was weeks away from getting married, now the girl called off the wedding. So just pray on it & make sure you’re comfortable with ur decision, not bullied— Nicki Minaj (@NICKIMINAJ) September 13, 2021
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
No one was really surprised when Piers Morgan decided to chime in, the man enjoys bullying women, black women especially remember Meghan Markle… It was Joy Anne Ried’s two cents that had fans taken aback especially when the good sis back in 2020 tweeted to her 2M followers her distrust of the vaccine and didn’t bother to read the article beyond the head and under the guise of being a Nicki fan and hip-hop fan used that time to bring her down.
But Nicki had time today and didn’t hesitate to answer to those spreading false narratives about her.
A lying homophobic coon— Nicki Minaj (@NICKIMINAJ) September 14, 2021
I guess I can join in the reindeer games too right? Ppl can go on tv & lie on me, I can report on them, too right? ☺️. Doesn’t have to be truths. It can be half truths.

50 Cent Reveals He’d Star In A Romantic Comedy With Nicki Minaj
50 Cent says he wants to share the screen with Nicki Minaj.
During his appearance on “Jalen Rose: Renaissance Man Podcast,” Fifty was asked who he would want to star alongside in a romantic comedy and Nicki was the first name that came to mind. “You know who would probably be fun to work with? Nicki,” said Fif. “Nicki Minaj would be fun to be in a romantic comedy with.”
The two both grew up n the New York neighborhood of South Jamaica, Queens. As a result of this the rapper feels a kinship towards Nicki saying he understands Nicki “I kinda understand her a little bit more than the other people,” he said. “When she’s being an asshole because she’s telling you, ‘You’re not going to take advantage of me.” And while others may not like the”Seeing Green” rapper because of her tough personality 50 applauded Nicki for being an assertive “alpha female.”
The rapper is known to show his support for Minaj. Just last year while speaking with Lil Wayne on Young Money Radio he had nothing but praises for Nicki.
“I love me some Nicki. This n***a actually happens to come from my neighborhood. It happens to be a girl, but that n***a is tough!” he said. “She be harder than the n***a she f**k with. She be harder and she’s an alpha female! That motherf**ker tough! You see what I’m saying, son? You got to watch her or she’ll go–she’ll do something that’s pulling a move to assert herself.”
50 is fresh off the premiere of his new Starz series “BMF,” which has already been renewed for a second season.

The rapper’s run on the Fox singing competition came to an end when he was eliminated on Wednesday night’s episode. For his final performance, he rapped Snoop Dogg’s “Beautiful.”
The judges were shocked when Tyga took off his dog mask to reveal himself. Robin Thicke guessed it was Nelly, while Nicole Scherzinger thought it could be Nelly or Lil Yachty, Lil Uzi Vert, or Lil Boosie. Jenny McCarthy guessed Kevin Hart, and Ken Jeong guessed Reggie Bush.
Nick Cannon claimed to have known that it was Tyga underneath the Dalmatian costume all along. Tyga decided to do the show after Lil Wayne’s appearance as “Robot” in season 3. He stated that seeing Wayne do it had inspired him. Thicke, who collaborated with Tyga on “This Is Like,” remarked, “We’re lucky to have you on the show. Every time we have the young, hottest cats on the show it makes us look cooler.”
Last week’s double elimination, saw Toni Braxton unmasked as the Pufferfish and Vivica A. Fox as Mother Nature. Tyga is the latest rapper to appear on Fox’s Masked Singer.
Some honorable mentions of Masked Singer reveals are T-Pain as “The Monster” winner of the first season, former Destiny’s Child member Michelle Williams as “Butterfly”, Wayne Brady as “Fox” and Bow Wow as “Frog”.
