Nicki Minaj took to social media and had an open dialogue with her Barbs about COVID-19 and getting the vaccine.

It all began when someone pointed out Nicki’s last public appearance was over a year ago.

Her response was befitting.

While chatting with her Barbs on Twitter, Nicki shared she is unvaccinated and she’s still doing her own research about it before making a decision on it.

She also revealed she was prepping for the VMAs, but contracted COVID-19 while shooting a music video.

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

Like many recent events, the Met Gala requires attendees to be fully vaccinated.

Nicki Minaj said if she does decide to get vaccinated it won’t be just to attend the Met.

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 shared one of her brother’s friends suffered a side effect after getting vaccinated.

She also encouraged everyone who may be on the fence to pray about it and not be bullied into getting vaccinated.

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 went on to say she will eventually get vaccinated because she has to be to do her tour.

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.

She also asked the Barbs which vaccine would they recommend and posted a poll.

While it would have been great to see Nicki Minaj at the Met Gala, I respect the fact that everyone must do what they feel is best for them and their families.
