Nicki Minaj sent her fans into a frenzy with a September tweet announcing her retirement from music. But thanks to a new interview with The Shade Room posted to Instagram on Sunday (Oct. 20), Barbies can rest assured knowing Minaj isn't done quite yet.
"When I posted that retirement tweet, I knew that I still had music that I already had recorded that was still going to come out," she said. So the retirement was kind of talking about my album, meaning like, 'Do I want to go back and record my fifth album?'"
After hinting that she may also have some features in the pipeline, Minaj continued explaining her shocking retirement tweet. "It was really about the fifth album," Nicki said. "Where do I stand with it now? I didn't know my fans would act like that with the tweet. It hurt my feelings because I feel like the way I did it was maybe insensitive to my fans. But I didn't think people were going to take it -- I didn't know it was going to be that big of a deal, so that's why I deleted it."
