She's working hard
Nicki Minaj has been AWOL from social media since last year, leaving her Barbz to stew while they wait for her new album. According to TMZ, Minaj has been absent to work on her latest album and the sabbatical is doing a lot of of good.
The unnamed sources told the outlet that the rapper is sitting social media out, and her album is doing great because of it.
Nose to the Grindstone
TMZ reports that their moles told them Minaj is sealed away to make sure that nothing can take her attention away from the project in front of her.
“She decided to ditch social media at the end of 2017 to fully focus on her music, which is why she’s had no new posts since December 30,” the website wrote.
In addition, those sources told TMZ that Minaj has in the studio “night and day” and that many of the names who have joined her would be recognized among the Young Money roster, not the least of which would be an apparent guest appearance from Lil Wayne.
Of course, here’s where a million fans chime in with the fact that her last album came out in 2014. She must have been really distracted, you can already hear the Barbz tweet. But hey, fandom is fandom. You can’t just turn it off because your fave is taking a little long for your liking. Much like Philadelphia you have to trust the process.
And if we get an actual masterpiece out of this sealing away in a hyperbaric chamber, won’t it all be worth it? We all know what Nicki can do when she’s not distracted. We all heard Beam Me Up Scotty. What if she drops something like that on our heads?
In Her Own Words
This news is also not the first time that we have heard mention of the fact the Minaj needs to focus on her new album. When fans started chatting about a possible wee Minaj, Nicki laid out a question for them.
“Y’all want the album or the baby?” she wrote on Twitter. “Cuz ch- y’all ain’t bout to get both.”
The fans countered, asking why she couldn’t do both which prompted Minaj to make it plain that she was not going to go the Beyonce route.
“Btch I’m not waddling across nobody stage talking bout feelin myself I’m feelin myself I’m feelin my feelin my….” she said
If the album isn’t enough of a reason for her to stay away from social media, it certainly doesn’t hurt that Nicki’s been going through some rough times. The last several months saw her brother put away for sexual abuse of children and her budding relationship with Nas dissolve.
Although Minaj has done her best to distance herself from her disgraced brother Jelani Maraj, who was convicted on charges of violating a child after repeatedly abusing his then-stepdaughter, she did make time to visit him in prison recently.
And the much-less grave situation with Nas was apparently just the result of a fling fizzling out. TMZ reported at the time that the pair split because of a sudden lack of passion.
“The rappers broke up a few weeks ago after the relationship ran out of steam,” the webiste wrote before offering up one other reason. “They’ve been dating since June 2017, but we’re told living in different cities was just too much.”
