In a series of tweets she shared as the event was just getting started, the hitmaker revealed that because COVID-19 vaccination is required for guests to attend this year's Met Gala, she would not be in attendance."They want you to get vaccinated for the Met," she

wrote on Twitter."If I get vaccinated it won’t [be] 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."

Artist MentionedNicki Minaj Pulls Out of 2021 MTV VMAs Performance: 'Next Year We There Baby'In a previous tweet she shared earlier on Monday, Minaj seemingly revealed she had already contracted the virus while preparing for Sunday night's MTV Video Music Awards, so she ended up pulling out of her planned performance."I was prepping for vmas then i shot a video & guess who got COVID?" she said."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."

In an additional tweet, Minaj explained that while she is personally holding off on receiving the vaccine for now, she supports individuals who are choosing to get vaccinated and she may receive the vaccine eventually."A lot of countries won’t let ppl work w/o the vaccine. I’d def recommend they get the vaccine," she wrote."They have to feed their families. I’m sure I’ll b vaccinated as well cuz I have to go on tour, etc."

Also on Twitter, Minaj claimed that one of her relatives' loved ones experienced adverse side effects after being vaccinated in her native Trinidad."My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent," she wrote."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."

Minaj also co-signed one Twitter user who explained that they have been vaccinated for COVID-19 and did not experience negative side effects."Nicki I got the vaccine and haven’t got the virus or anything so that’s a good thing," the person tweeted, to which Minaj replied,"That’s amazing babe. This is the norm."

Hay vl Nhạc hay thế nhờ. Có bản mp3 chưa? I got your back NICKIMINAJ salute So proud of her! Her body her choice!!! ITZY YUNA watch till the end! Then she’s risking herself into getting covid . That’s on her risking her own family too She’s irrelevant, so ✌🏽 Faceplant Good I'm glad VaccinesWork VaccinesSaveLives TeamPfizer she don't care about anybody but herself....she's a legend in her own mind 😷🤍

This tweet flopped. It’s day 6...let it go. Make sure y’all wear a double mask. Social distance and quarantine as much as possible just like the Queen of Rap.

The White House Apparently Offered to Speak to Nicki Minaj'...about the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine.' BlackMileyCyrus girl aren’t y’all bored Pls talking about “ apparently” y’allso mad they offered her a call and an invitation 😭

NICKIMINAJ needs to open her Tik Tok app and look up the account 'atasteofalex.' Her very last post, August 15. She died a week later from COVID19. She was unvaccinated and 'doing her research.' Her message to just go get it is worth listening to. And, isn't it strange, she recvd more media coverage by not attending. Now that's great PR work, swollen balls and all.

A win for the Gala Nicki told y'all she is afraid her balls get swole. taylorswift13 also skip MetGala and vmas that means she also unvaccinated but ppl doesn't mind, maybe because she is white🤔 If U ain't white, U ain't right😏 You take our queens name outta your mouth Thanks for telling, My life is changed now 🤡

It doesn't take some big balls to do that. Op

Nicki Minaj Just Tried to Dox Two ReportersIt seems like she isn't very happy about what's going on? Two reporters that threatened her family Trying to put a different spin on it...journalist or not you send my family this mess I'm coming for ya neck. Yall no different from scum paparazzi. She’s doing everything she can to take focus off her trying to pay off her husbands mess imo

That's perfectly fine. It's her own opinion. Just, never mind the extra. You know, the cousins raging balls' story. People get deterred from facts because of the extras. Unintentional yeah, but the gullible will worry about their balls. 😂 To be honest, I don't think that's the reason, but it's definitely not the same without the rap queen NICKIMINAJ 🤷🏻‍♂️

Good for her So, she’s not really wanted anywhere besides twitter anyways this is old news and she’s doing research before getting the vaccine. don’t be messy 'as a result'😑 Anyways were past this now was really looking forward to see the queen of rap thebabyfloki For our first billboard we thought we'd go with something modest, and have ended up right outside SpaceX! One down, two to go. BabyFloki SpaceX

Billboard was just sleeping last 2 days so they are capable to post today lol Let Unvaccinated NickiMinaj get and experience covid19 coronavirus 👍😂

White House confirms it offered Nicki Minaj a phone call after rapper’s vaccine tweetsPress Secretary Jen Psaki on Thursday confirmed that a White House staffer reached out after the Grammy-nominated rapper posted several misinformed tweets about coronavirus vaccines, but that it did not extend her an invitation to visit the White House. Wouldn’t want an unvaccinated person hanging out with all the other unvaccinated people in the White House. Nicki called their bluff. Unforgivable ignorance to spread hearsay, “friend said, friend said” about a deadly serious infection without consulting credible facts on vaccine.

👏 stop 👏 talking 👏 about 👏 this Updates on this? Nobody wanted queen pdf file there anyway. SurvivingThePettys No but y’all slow as hell! Bye 🤣 🗣🗣🗣HER HUSBAND IS FACING TEN YEARS FOR RAPE🗣🗣🗣 Billboard you're so slow. Get out 😂😂😂

White House offers Nicki Minaj call with doctor to answer vaccine questionsThe White House offered to connect rapper Nicki Minaj with one of the Biden administration's doctors to answer questions about the safety and efficacy of Covid-19 vaccines, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Does Nicki Minaj have a private, family doctor that she trusts, respects and knows? I'm sure the questions that need to be answered will be the same as a doctor from the White House. This should be. three-way call so she hears it from a familiar person she depends on to stay well She got trolled by the best. What can you say? 🤷‍♂️ What else do these would-be stars claim to be in the spotlight again?😡
