Following a back-and-forth struggle that’s been taking place since September, Nicki Minaj is shining light on whether or not she is retired.

At the time, Nicki wrote to her fans in a since deleted tweet: “I’ve decided to retire & have my family. I know you guys are happy now. To my fans, keep reppin me, do it til da death of me, in the box- cuz ain’t nobody checkin me. Love you for LIFE.” A month later, she dropped a new track leaving fans puzzled.

In an interview, the “Anaconda” rapper clarified her plans a bit more: “I love music and interacting with fans, so I can’t really see taking myself completely away. But I want to be open to other possibilities in my life. I do believe it is important to become a woman outside of the magnifying glass. I have to make sure that I’m well-rounded as a human being.” She continued by noting, “I’m a perfectionist and love topping myself, so as long as I love music, I’ll always be doing that.”

Stay tuned for more regarding Nicki Minaj’s future inside and out of the music realm.
