US barbie and Nicki Minaj Says She’s Retiring to Focus on her Family. In a wild turn of events, Minaj took to Twitter on Thursday afternoon (Sept. 5) to declare that she’s retiring from music carreer to put all her focus on starting a family with her partner Kenneth “Zoo” Petty.
“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, [X] in the box- cuz ain’t nobody checkin me. Love you for LIFE,” .
The announcement seemingly came out of nowhere, as Minaj had been very active in the music scene this summer. She recently joined Megan Thee Stallion for a guest verse on her “Hot Girl Summer” anthem, and the Queens native had also been teasing plans for a new album she’d been holed up working on following the release of “Megatron.”
