After taking a break from social media for the first couple months of 2018, Nicki Minaj came back strong with two singles “Chun-Li” and “Barbie Tingz,” and ended her silence.
Now that she’s back, she isn’t holding her tongue when it comes to negative energy in her comments.
On Sunday, Nicki posted a behind the scenes clip for her upcoming “Barbie Tingz” video, and someone took the time to comment, “Isn’t your body fake?? You paid to look like you.”
Unimpressed, Nicki called out the commenter and hit her back with a ruthless comment: “You can’t even show ur whole face. Must suck to be so jealous, miserable, insecure and ugly.”
While Nicki did take the time to defend herself with a quick comment, she seems more focused on her music at the moment.
The Instagram post that initially drew the negative comment was a preview of her video new for “Barbie Tingz,” which appears to be a collaboration with creative director Giovanni Bianco.
Bianco also shared a quick video from the shoot.
During a recent interview with Beats 1, Nicki called her new project the “best album I’ve ever in my life ever, ever, ever created.”
Explaining her goals for the album, she added, “I wanted to make sure I was writing something that was meaningful to me, and that would inspire, and that would captivate my audience. But most importantly, I wanted to have fun [in the studio] again.” Making it clear that she’s still focused on the music itself, she told Zane Lowe, “Music has become much more than music now. It’s become just a lot of shenanigans. And I was like man… I can rap. At the end of the day, that’s what I do. I don’t know about nobody else, but I rap.”
