Nicki Minaj retires from music, gives reason


"I know you guys are happy now", she wrote.

Minaj, whose real name is Onika Tanya Maraj, said she wants to "have my family" and told her fans to "keep reppin me, do it til da death of me".

Minaj has seemingly been dating Kenneth "Zoo" Petty for a few months. The self-proclaimed Queen of Rap put an unknown blogger on blast in a tweet-and-delete spree Wednesday after he said he didn't feel like he knew who Nicki really was based on her discography.

It was not immediately clear if this meant Minaj was retiring from music, or all of her endeavors. Petty has also served time in prison for first-degree manslaughter.

"The next album will be written by a man so these men can get to know 'me.' I'll make sure not to include any metaphors or big words, so they don't feel overwhelmed or confused", she trolled.

She has won six American Music Awards, has been a judge on American Idol, and was named in Time's 100 most influential people in 2016.

The "Starships" singer burst onto the music scene 10 years ago with her first album "Pink Friday" and is known for her outspoken comments, feuds with other singers, colorful wigs and alter egos.
