Nicki Minaj is pregnant – and she plans to let the world in on it this Sunday, Media Take Out has learned.
As we reported last month, Nicki and her husband, entertainment executive Kenneth Petty, are expecting their second child. And we spoke to a person close to Nicki who tell us that the legendary hip hop artist plans to announce her pregnancy to the world at the Grammys.
2023 was a huge comeback year for Nicki Minaj. The singer scored her first-ever solo Billboard No. 1 with “Super Freaky Girl,” and she was honored with the Vanguard Music Award at the 2022 VMAs.
Unfortunately, the Grammy’s pulled a fast one on Nicki – to stop her from getting the nomination – and the award – that she deserved.
In October, when the first round of Grammys voting ballots went out to members, Nicki took to Twitter to slam the Recording Academy for moving “Super Freaky Girl” from the rap category to the pop category, and for seemingly holding Nicki’s work to different standard than other pop-rap songs.
In tweets, Nicki pointed out that if they wanted to categorize “Super Freaky Girl” as pop, then they should’ve done the same with Latto’s song “Big Energy.”
“I have no prob being moved out the RAP category as long as we r ALL being treated FAIRLY. If SFG (‘Super Freaky Girl’) has 2B moved out RAP then so does Big Energy! ANY1 who says diff is simply a Nicki hater or a troll,” she tweeted.
Nicki later expanded in a video that she felt these changes were targeted: “I always say this: Any rapper, female or male, that wins a Grammy, you should be f*cking proud of yourself. But why is the goalpost only ever moved when it’s Nicki? Well, I’ll tell you why. They don’t want the people that they have in the industry to go up against me.”
Minaj has now been completely shut out of the 2023 Grammys with “Super Freaky Girl,” her biggest charting song in a while, getting nothing.
