Nicki Minaj is having reservations about retirement.
While promoting her Fendi Prints On collection, the rap queen reflected on her tweet from Sept. 5 that sent hip-hop and her fans into a frenzy.
“I didn’t know my fans were going to act like that with the tweet, and it hurt my feelings,” she told The Shade Room. “I felt like the way I did it was like insensitive to my fans, I didn’t know it was going to be that big of a deal. So that’s why I deleted it because it had like 600,000 likes and it was up for like less than an hour, and it took on a life of its own.”
She realizes in hindsight that it was not the best decision. “But you know what, I’m a human being and sometimes in the middle of all this chaos, you’re a woman, you’re a human being, you have feelings, you may speak out of term,” she added. “You may do things or say things where you’re like ‘what the hell was I talking about or thinking about,’ but I’m human.”
While she didn’t confirm whether a fifth album was actually coming, she revealed some potential collaborators. “I just recently collaborated with DaBaby, so you know he got to return that favor, and Gunna, I love Gunna,” she said. “So, if there is an album there’s going to be way more than that if there is an album, but those are two new people that I haven’t had on an album yet who I would love to work with them.”
She and Kanye West also collaborated on “New Body” for his upcoming album Jesus Is King, but the track may not make the final cut due to creative differences.
“What’s funny is that I did a song with Kanye, that he now wants to transform into a gospel song,” she said. “I done wrote three different verses chile, and I don’t know. We ain’t seeing eye to eye on it. I don’t know, but of course, I love and respect Kanye, and Kim, we’ll see what happens with that.”
