Her anaconda don’t want to select political sides.
Nicki Minaj addressed her controversial remarks concerning the COVID-19 vaccine in her Vogue December cover story published Thursday.
“I’m considered one of those individuals who doesn’t go along with a crowd,” the “Super Bass” singer told the outlet. “I wish to make my very own assessment of all the things without help from everyone.”
Back in 2021, Minaj, now 40, faced backlash when she expressed her wariness about getting the COVID vaccine to be able to attend the Met Gala.
She claimed she desired to do her own research concerning the newly developed vaccine, especially because her cousin’s friend allegedly experienced swollen testicles and have become impotent after getting the jab in Trinidad.
Nevertheless, authorities of the Caribbean nation quickly launched an investigation into Minaj’s wild claim and were unable to search out anyone who had such a testicular response to the vaxx.
Twitter, now often called X, flagged the “Anaconda” rapper’s tweet as misinformation after she shared her thoughts along with her 23 million followers, and Minaj claimed the platform prohibited her from posting any more by putting her in “Twitter jail.”
Still, Minaj’s remarks were praised by several right-wing outlets, including former Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
Despite their support, Minaj told Vogue she will be able to not be influenced on which politicians to support or which stances to take.
“Each time I discuss politics, people get mad,” she claimed. “I’m sorry, but I’m not going to be told who I should get on social media and campaign for.”
“There’s loads we don’t know that’s happening in the federal government,” she added. “I don’t think it changes whether you lean to the left or right.”
