Since her retirement announcement back in September 2019, she had been staying away from all social media platforms and even appearing in public.
Recently, Nicki Minaj has appeared in a music video with Meghan Trainor “Nice to Meet Ya.” It was the first time after her retirement in any song. She then also can be noticed at the Super Bowl weekend party.
Since then Nicki Minaj has been continuously posting the latest pictures, videos, and updating herself with her fans on all social media handles.

Kanye West says he had COVID-19, speaks against vaccines
Following the rapper’s Independence Day announcement that he would be running for the US presidency in 2020, Ye revealed to Forbes he’d contracted COVID-19 in February and insisted his tweet was not a publicity stunt.
“Chills, shaking in the bed, taking hot showers, looking at videos telling me what I’m supposed to do to get over it,” West described his experiences with the illness.
“I remember someone had told me Drake had the coronavirus and my response was Drake can’t be sicker than me!”
He maintained that the illness had nothing to do with his considerations to run this year.
“God just gave me the clarity and said it’s time,” West said. “You know I was out there, ended up in the hospital, people were calling me crazy. I’m not crazy.
“Between all of the influences and the positions that we can be put in as musicians… It can drive you crazy, through all of that I was looking crazy because it wasn’t the time. Now it’s time. And we’re not going crazy, we’re going Yeezy, it’s a whole ‘notha level now. N-O-T-H-A.”
West also revealed his suspicions surrounding a COVID-19 vaccine to combat the disease, calling it “the mark of the beast”. “We pray,” West began, “We pray for the freedom. It’s all about God. We need to stop doing things that make God mad.”
West candidly touched upon his previous (and very public) support for Trump, saying, “Trump is the closest president we’ve had in years to allowing God to still be part of the conversation.”
Forbes reporter Randall Lane described the conversation with West as “four rambling hours of interviews”, through which the billionaire rapper also shared his thoughts on abortion, foreign policies, Joe Biden, racial healing after George Floyd, his position as a political novice, taxes, China, that he “envisions a White House organisational model based on the secret country of Wakanda in Black Panther” and that he no longer supports President Trump – “I am taking the red hat off, with this interview.”
West’s candidacy announcement was supported publicly by Elon Musk, who tweeted, “You have my full support.” The response to West’s announcement was swift, though it divided many of his followers.
Despite his intent to run, West had already missed several key deadlines in six US states. He is, though, still eligible to register in the states of South Carolina, Florida, Missouri, Colorado and Michigan, whose ballot deadlines fall this month.
On July 6, West reportedly filed papers to trademark his ‘West Day Ever’ slogan.
Here’s Metallica’s ‘Enter Sandman’ in the style of Iron Maiden
The impressive effort from Finnish YouTuber Metal Börje sees Metallica’s 1991 hit being recreated in the style of the British metal pioneers.
While it might just be an instrumental cover, it’s an entirely believable take on what the meeting of the two bands would probably sound like – with Maiden’s signature style (and some brilliant face masks) all present through the video.
Borje has form for his unusual takes, having previously imagined what it would sound like if Slipknot had created ‘Enter Sandman’.
Meanwhile, Metallica fans craving their fix of new material might not have to wait too much longer after it emerged that the band are recording new material during lockdown.
In a new interview with The Vinyl Guide podcast , bassist Rob Trujillo said that the band were in touch on a weekly basis to share ideas and updates on what they’ve been crafting in their own home studios.
“We communicate every week, which is really great, so we have our connection intact. And what we’ve started doing is basically just really concentrating on our home studios and being creative from our homes and navigating through ideas and building on new ideas,” he said.
“We’re excited about cultivating new ideas, to be honest. And everybody’s in a good headspace, for the most part, and that’s pretty much our focus now — let’s have fun with this. That’s part of the reason I got some updated recording gear and I’m putting ideas together and we’re checking kind of each other’s vibes out on new stuff. And that’s pretty much where we’re at.”
The update comes after Lars Ulrich said that there was “a very good chance” the band would utilise their extra downtime to produce a “quarantine record”, which would follow on from 2016’s ‘Hardwired… To Self Destruct’.
