Nicki Minaj, the rap superstar, has stated why she will not be attending the Met Gala in 2021. Those attending the event must present proof of vaccination against the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 vaccine has not yet been administered to the 38-year-old entertainer.
“They want you to get vaccinated for the Met,” says the narrator. It won’t be for the Met if I get vaccinated. She remarked on Twitter, “It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research.” “Right now, I’m working on it.”
“In the meantime, my loves, stay safe,” she concluded. Wear the mask over your head and face using the two strings that grasp your head and face. “Not that sloppy one,” says the narrator (sic)
Barbz, a group of Minaj’s devoted admirers, begged her to reconsider her attitude on immunizations, according to PageSix.
One social media user said, “The vaccine doesn’t prevent you from developing COVID, it keeps you from acquiring terrible symptoms,” mirroring CDC research that showed vaccines are helpful in preventing fatal cases of COVID-19.
Despite this, Minaj insisted, “Babe.” That’s not true,” she responded, before implying that she had previously contracted the illness. “I had exactly the same symptoms as individuals who had the vaccine.”
Later, the “Starships” singer stated that her Trinidadian relative is refusing to get the vaccine because “his pal got it and became impotent.”
She claimed that his testicles swelled. “His friend was set to marry in a few weeks, but the girl called off the wedding. So just pray about it and make sure you’re comfortable with your decision rather than feeling pressured.” (sic)
The vaccine is safe, according to the CDC, and has never been linked to impotency or vaginal swelling. Rather, it is thought to provide the best protection against new strains, such as Delta, while also stopping the virus from spreading to others.
Minaj’s tweets came only hours before the event at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York was supposed to begin.
Minaj also skipped the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, stating that she would “explain why another day”; it’s possible that MTV’s event had a vaccine mandate as well.
