Nicki Minaj may have once had "Barbie Dreams," but now she's setting her sights on something else: A family. The 10-time Grammy nominated rapper announced her plan to retire from music on Twitter Thursday.
"I've decided to retire & have my family," she wrote. "I know you guys are happy now." The performer added a note to fans with lyrics from her rap in the remix of the Alicia Keys hit "Girl on Fire."
"To my fans, keep reppin me, do it til da death of me," she wrote, "X in the box- cuz ain't nobody checkin me. Love you for LIFE." The star added a kissy face, heart and unicorn emoji to the tweet.
Many of Minaj's fans and fellow musicians seemed shocked by the decision. "Very busy prepping my new video but @NICKIMINAJ you better not retire! I love you! K bye," wrote singer Todrick Hall on Twitter. Rapper Young M.A tweeted simply, "You must be hacked?"
“I rlly used to think love had to hurt. So I could never look down on anyone else. We are merely human. It’s not easy to leave. Especially in the world of IG where all ppl want to do is post relationship goal pics for clout & attention. A man should make you feel safe, not afraid,” she told her millions of followers just a few days ago.
Hopefully she finds happiness in her next life stage.
