Nicki Minaj Opens Up About Past Toxic Relationships

Dear all of you beautiful souls.

A man who loves you does not:

1. Humiliate you on social media
2. Beat you
3. Cheat on you
4. Call you out of your name/put you down to lower your self esteem due to his own insecurities.
5. Hide his phone, passwords, where abouts, etc.

I rlly used to think love had to hurt. So I could never look down on anyone else. We are merely human. It’s not easy to leave. Especially in the world of IG where all ppl want to do is post relationship goal pics for clout & attention. A man should make you feel safe, not afraid

I remember being so afraid to speak cuz I never knew when that person would be in a particular mood and I could maybe say one wrong thing that would get me hit. So the diff you see in me now is that feeling when a woman feels lifted up, safe, appreciated & unconditionally loved.

But I first had to learn how to love MYSELF. 🙏🏾 if you wouldn’t let a man treat your mother, your sister or best friend like that b/c you LOVE them, then you wouldn’t let a man treat YOU like that b/c you love YOU. This isn’t about judging. We judge too much. Lift them up. 🙏🏾

When u see a woman in a toxic relationship, rather than laugh & say mean things, try to offer sound advice from your heart & root for her to learn her worth. We’ve all been there. I saw my parents fight & argue non stop & never divorce, so I thought this was normal behavior…

I saw these series of tweets Nicki Minaj posted yesterday. Although I loved them all and I loved the message she sent, I also thought in the back of my mind what would make her talk about this after all these years. I wasn’t the only one who thought something was up when she tweeted about this because I saw a few replies under the tweets of people asking if she was okay. In the tweets, she mentioned being in toxic relationships in the past and learning how to love herself.

For some strange reason, I honestly believe she only talked about this to justify her relationship with her current significant other, Kenneth Petty. He was convicted of murder and is also a registered sex offender. After learning this, many people dragged her for being involved with this man.

Not only is this man a past convicted felon and registered sex offender due to attempted rape, more of their story of getting together just sounds outright messy. Nicki said, once, that she cheated on a past boyfriend for him and how Petty beat him up. And I saw on a video Chrissie uploaded on YouTube (featured below) that he himself admitted to cheating on his partner for Nicki AND told his partner that he’s only with Nicki to get up on a bag. The story just sounds like a HOT MESS!

Although I personally don’t care who she’s involved with romantically, I think people have a right to feel some type of way for any woman to be involved with a man who has such a past and probably deserves the dragging. I feel like even more so, she has fans that love her and want what’s best for her. I don’t think some of her fans like seeing her being involved with this man.

I believe Nicki Minaj is fully aware of what people have been saying online about her being involved with this man. At first, she was going off on people criticizing her relationship on her podcast, Queen Radio. Now, I feel like she released these series of tweets looking for sympathy or trying to shift the narrative so people can think, “Oh, she’s happy. She’s with a man who loves her” instead of thinking, “She’s with a murderer and a rapist!”

Don’t think for one second that these celebrities aren’t reading people’s comments and social media posts. Just because they don’t respond to every single one or say nothing at all doesn’t mean they don’t read them. This is proof that celebrities DO read people’s comments AND care about what people say about them.

I believe Cardi B did this exact same thing this past week when XXL released an article talking about how fans believe Travis Scott’s album, Astroworld, should have won the Grammy for best album over Cardi B’s album, Invasion of Privacy.

She, too, put out a series of tweets talking about how hard she worked on the album even while sick and pregnant to defend herself and say she deserved the win.

On my album I showed different sides of me.From my intro talking about my pass. To living my best life inspiring people.Relationship songs while I was going thru my own relationship drama to shaking ass like Bodak & that ASS .Every song went platinum!

I did it all while I was pregnant.Throwing up, drowsy,terrible colds and in a rush to finish it so I can start doing music videos before I started showing .I spend 24 hours for months sleeping on a couch with my pregnant depressed ass in a studio .

I wasn’t even thinking of winning or even the Grammies. All I can think about was …everybody is disappointed in me,am I still going to have a career after this baby ? Is this album going to make me or break me ? I need to finish before I start showing .

All while I just separated from my long time manager.I had to get my husband to talk to my label cause I never had a relationship with them so we all came together to relocate me to Atlanta and Miami to finish my album before my stomach start showing.

When i kept seeing the certifications of the songs going gold or platinum I was so excited cause my husband was out here asking everybody for a feature on my behalf so the ones that said yes thank you from the bottom of my heart cause TRUST ME ALOT OF ARTIST SAID NO!

So when I won a Grammy for it I didn’t have no words to say but when I went home I started reminiscing on what I went thru during that period I was like YEA BITCH YOU DESERVE THIS SHIT !abd until this day my shit still charting .

Just like with Nicki’s tweets, I wondered why Cardi was tweeting this stuff as well. I believe she did this to shift the narrative from people saying, “She doesn’t deserve it!” or “Other albums were better!” to “She’s worked so hard. Maybe she actually does deserve her Grammy”.

I honestly feel like other albums were more deserving of the Grammy myself, but we need to learn that Grammys don’t always go to the people that deserve it most or worked the hardest. The Grammy committee gives the Grammy to who THEY feel like they want to give the Grammy to. It’s not about who WE or an other artist feels deserve it.

There are lots of amazing albums that weren’t even nominated that I’m SURE was way better than Cardi B’s. And I listened to her album. I liked some songs on there, but I wouldn’t say it deserved a Grammy.

These awards shows always have and always will be SHAMS! Many people have called this out in the past, but some of y’all called them bitter and jealous “because they didn’t win one”. Now y’all are starting to see it. It’s funny how it takes for someone y’all don’t like to win a Grammy before y’all admit to yourselves how fake and phony they are. But I digress.

Again, all of this tweeting that Cardi and Nicki are doing is just them looking for sympathy and/or shifting the narrative of the comments directed towards them. And I feel that people should NOT fall it. It’s all a game!

7 Stupid, Annoying Things People Need To STOP Saying & Doing On The Internet

I’m on social media a lot and I see a lot of things on there that people do and say that are really stupid, annoying, and doesn’t make any sense whatsoever. I really hope to see the day when people will stop saying these things. But here are just seven of the most stupid, annoying things I’ve seen people doing and saying on social media.

1. “Hop Out My Mentions”

People are always saying this whenever someone replies to a post or comment of theirs, especially if it’s disagreeing with what they say and it’s someone they “don’t know”. If you don’t want anyone responding to your posts, especially people you don’t know, either make your account private or don’t use social media at all. It’s obviously not for you. (I also think people only say this because they can’t rebuttal against the disagreeing comment any other way, so they use it as an easy cop out.)

2. “This Person Sent Me A Friend Request And I Don’t Even Know Them”

If your account is open to the public, this is what will happen. Anybody can see your profile, including people you don’t know and they CAN send you a friend request. They don’t have to “know you” in order to do so. The solution to this is the same as the solution to the previous one: if you don’t want people you don’t know sending you friend requests, either make your account private, don’t use social media at all, or get used to random people sending you friend requests because it’s going to keep happening.

3. “You’re Defending This Person Like You Know Them”

People usually say this after they say something negative about someone, especially a celebrity, and someone else defends this person against their negativity. So, a person can’t defend someone on social media because they “don’t know” them, but it’s okay for you to say anything you want about someone when you don’t know the person any more than they do? If you think with that logic, you shouldn’t be saying anything at all about anyone yourself! You not knowing someone on social media does not give you the right or a pass to say negative things about them. If you want to say something negative about someone, be ready for the backlash. Don’t dish it if you can’t take it!

4. Blocking Someone Because You Or They Disagree

Blocking is really for harassment or offensive content, but I’ve started to notice more and more people blocking other people simply for disagreeing, which, in my opinion, really screws up the true purpose of the block button. Tons of people use social media and they all have differing opinions on different subjects. Not everyone is going to agree with everything you say. If you say something, chances are, there will always be someone who disagrees. Unless they disagree with disrespect, it’s utterly ridiculous to block someone just because you disagree. You shouldn’t even be on social media at all if you’re going to be like that.

5. “S/he’s Not Paying My Bills”

People usually say this after they say something negative about a celebrity to justify what they just said. I feel like, if someone has to say something like this after they say something about someone else, they already know they’re wrong, which is why they need to make a ridiculous justification such as this so they will feel like they’re in the right. Celebrities don’t know you and don’t owe you even the laces off their shoes! It’s stupid to use this as an excuse to get a pass on saying something negative about them or use it to stop a person from defending them against what you said. It kind of sounds like bitterness; like they’re only saying negative things because they don’t have the money that the celebrity has and wants a part of it. That’s what that sounds like to me. Like I said earlier, don’t dish it if you can’t take it! A celebrity doesn’t have to “know you” or “pay your bills” for you or someone else to have an opinion about them. A celebrity doesn’t owe you just because you buy or support things of theirs. If you feel like that, stop buying and supporting their things. This includes illegally downloading their stuff. I’m not sure where this sense of celebrity entitlement comes from, but it really needs to be done away with.

6. “They have more money than you, anyway.”

This is another one people usually say when it comes to celebrities. It’s usually said when someone says something negative about a celebrity or says something about a celebrity that they don’t agree with. So, you need to have just as much money as a celebrity just to have a differing opinion about them? And if you don’t have as much money as a celebrity, the only opinion you can have is if you’re praising them and kissing their behinds or saying nothing at all? Just because they have money??? That sounds like worshipping someone just because they’re rich to me. No one needs to have a certain amount of money just to say something about someone.

7. “My Followers Are So Annoying”

This is probably the dumbest thing people say on social media out of them all because 1) if you can see them on your timeline, that means YOU followed them back! 2) If they’re that annoying, you can easily UNFOLLOW them! It has such a very easy and simple solution that it shouldn’t even need to be said. People say this like they have no control over the people they see on their timelines and like they just magically appear there. If you don’t like someone, UNFOLLOW THEM! I feel like people either just like hearing themselves say this or they’re afraid to unfollow them because their pages will be dry without them (Says a lot more about them than it does their followers).

I feel like people who say and do these things on social media are children because that’s exactly what these things sound like they come from. CHILDREN. (Or old people who don’t understand how social media works.) But sadly enough, they’re most likely from full grown adults who should know better, but don’t. They’re acting like babies! Social media really isn’t for people who say and do things like these and they really ruin the social media experience for everyone else.
