Each year, the Met Gala is an event with strong media resonance as the number of stars that we meet there is high. This year again, very many of them flocked to the Metropolitan Museum in New York for the fundraising. From Billie Eilish to Timothée Chalamet through Jennifer Lopez to Lewis Hamilton, many celebrities have paraded in front of the photographers but some stars have stood out by their absence, such as Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande or Nicki Minaj.
The latter did not take long to justify her absence since the same evening, she wrote on Twitter: “They want you to be vaccinated to go to the Met. If I get vaccinated, it will not be for the Met. I will. would when I had done enough research on the subject, I’m currently working on this. Until then, stay safe and wear a mask. ” Nicki Minaj is therefore not really anti-vaccine, she indicates in another tweet that “I would probably get vaccinated too to go on tour”.
My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent. His testicles became swollen. His friend was weeks away from getting married, now the girl called off the wedding. So just pray on it & make sure you’re comfortable with ur decision, not bullied

The strange justification of Nicki Minaj, absent from the Met Gala
Many Internet users have nevertheless found it strange that she wants to do her own research when scientists from dozens of countries have worked on the subject. More than this choice, it is the way she justifies it that calls out: “My cousin in Trinidad does not want to be vaccinated because a friend of his has done it and has become impotent. His testicles have started to swell . He was going to get married but his future-wife called off the marriage. Make sure you are comfortable with your decision and don’t let anyone make it for you. ” This strange justification of Nicki Minaj has been mocked a lot and several scientists have offered to enlighten her on the vaccine. In the meantime, the New York singer made her fans vote on Twitter to choose the vaccine she would receive.
