During an interview with The Shade Room, Minaj confirmed that she was strictly questioning the music she had already created. She also mentioned that she felt it might have been insensitive to her Barbies who were worried about it.

🔊 Sound on! _____________________________________ Earlier this week, #NickiMinaj dropped her highly anticipated #Fendi collection, and we were right there celebrating with her as she commemorated this new milestone that has all of the fashion industry talking.

As well as her upcoming nuptials to her man #KennethPetty, whether or not she’s really retiring, other artists she would love to collaborate with and much more. _____________________________________ If you’re like us, then you’ve been counting down the days since Nicki and Kenneth obtained their marriage license, as we wait for them to officially say their “I Do’s.” Nicki talked to us about their upcoming nuptials and whether or not they’re going to have a big wedding. _____________________________________ She said, “We’ll definitely do the paperwork portion of the marriage, but the actual wedding, I don’t know. You know when you’re a little girl and you want this big beautiful wedding, and I used to think I was one of those girls, I always wanted the fairytale. But then the things that used to matter to you don’t matter as much because I remember wanting those things with people, where real love wasn’t there. So now I feel like now that everything has finally lined up and matched up being that I’m madly in love with this man, he’s also my best friend, the things that used to matter to me before, don’t matter as much now.

“When I posted that retirement tweet, I knew that I still had music that I already had recorded that was still going to come out,” Minaj told The Shade Room. “So the retirement was kind of talking about my album, meaning like, ‘Do I want to go back and record my fifth album?'”
According to The Washington Post, The tweet that sparked the conversation was her speaking on retiring and starting a family. It read, “I’ve decided to retire and have my family. I know you guys are happy now.”
Although the tweet sounded like she was done with music, it was simply about letting the old music go while she created something new that reflected her life.
Recently, Minaj announced her marriage to Kenneth Petty on Instagram by sharing with the world matching hats that read “Bride” and “Groom” and mugs to go along with it. The caption also read her new last name and marriage date. She had mentioned in the same interview with The Shade Room that they were planning to be officially married, but most likely not have a full wedding.
“We’ll definitely do the paperwork portion of the marriage, but the actual wedding, I don’t know,” Minaj said. “You know when you’re a little girl and you want this big beautiful wedding, and I used to think I was one of those girls, I always wanted the fairytale. But then the things that used to matter to you don’t matter as much because I remember wanting those things with people, where real love wasn’t there.”
Thankfully, all the Barbz can be at ease and expect to hear from Minaj very soon.
