Nicki Minaj: Rapper announces retirement to have family and focus

0

The Grammy-nominated rapper is dating a man called Kenneth Petty and has hinted that they’re planning to get married.
As well as music, the 36-year-old has appeared in several Hollywood films and has her own radio show.
She’s not made it clear how many of her ventures she’s retiring from or, even, if she’s being serious.
After releasing a string of mixtapes in the 2000s, Nicki Minaj joined Drake on Lil Wayne’s record label Young Money Entertainment.
Her debut album Pink Friday came out in 2010.
Mega-hits like Super Bass, Anaconda and Starships then established her as one of the world’s biggest female rappers.
Her solo albums have sold millions – but her collaborations list is just as impressive: Ludacris, Usher, David Guetta, Madonna, Ariana Grande, Kanye West, Justin Bieber, and we could go on.
She’s been nominated for 10 Grammys, won five MTV Video Music Awards and broken the record for the most Billboard Hot 100 entries by a solo female artist.
Away from music, her film appearances include The Other Woman and Ice Age: Continental Drift.
But in 2018 there were signs the wheels might be coming off the Minaj-machine.

Minaj recently told listeners of her “Queen Radio” show that she and boyfriend Kenneth Perry had applied for a marriage license and would be wed in “about 80 days.
The “Barbie Dreams” rapper, 36, explained that she and Petty “filed for the marriage license and we still had to pick it up and I was traveling, by the time I came back, we had to renew it again.”
“From that time, you have 90 days to get married. That was about a week ago, so now I have about 80 days,” Minaj shared.
With so much on her plate, Minaj said that she and Petty will celebrate their union with a small, intimate ceremony and will plan a big wedding as her schedule becomes less busy.
“I have to work on my album and I have a lot to focus on that I don’t want to do the big wedding now. We’ll do the big wedding later,” Minaj said.
“I’ll be married before my album comes out, but will have my wedding after the album comes out. Before the 90 days is over, yes, I will be married.”
