A New Mother During A Pandemic
Minaj gave birth on September 30th. This means she had her child during the COVID-19 pandemic. Hiring outside help was a potential health hazard. The new mother has been pulling the weight of motherhood on her own and we respect her for that.

Is Nicki Minaj Being Silenced?
In the push and pull of explaining herself, Minaj went on t tweet about a family friend taking the vaccine only to end up sterilized later to the point where his fiancee called off the wedding. These are people the Queen Radio host knows of who live in Trinidad who were having this experience.
Minaj who is followed by 22 million people on Twitter began trending for her comments. The family friends he spoke of were eventually tracked down by news organizations and begged for interviews. One particular journalist put on the pressure in a way that was a total affront to these private persons. That reporter is Sharlene Rampersad.
