Nicki Minaj has revealed that she came down with COVID-19, and that she has yet to get her vaccination. 

The hip-hop superstar took to Twitter Monday to share with fans that she won’t be attending this year’s Met Gala in New York City, explaining that she got COVID-19 while getting ready for the MTV Video Music Awards.

“I was prepping for vmas then i shot a video & guess who got COVID,” Nicki 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 [with] THE VACCINE tho so chile.”

She continued, claiming that she “had the exact same symptoms as ppl with the damn vaccine” in response to a fan who said the vaccine prevents more serious symptoms. She then revealed she isn’t going to the Met Gala after wanting to do more research on the vaccine. 

“if I get vaccinated it won’t for the Met,” Nicki wrote. “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 ​​​​​​.”
