To retire at 36? For most people that is inconceivable. Not so for Nicki Minaj. Because the rapper apparently wants to give up her music career.

Nicki Minaj wrote in a tweet: "I have decided to withdraw and dedicate myself to my family." She adds ironically: "I know you people are happy now."

The award-winning singer still has a few warm words for her supporters: "To my fans, continue to represent me ... I love you forever."

Nicki Minaj, who is in a relationship with Kenneth Petty, has already adopted her boyfriend's last name on Twitter: "Mrs. Petty". At the beginning of August it became known that the couple wanted to get married in the next few months.

However, Minaj has had to take a lot of criticism for their relationship in the past. Because Petty is said to be a convicted felon.

Fans hope for a bad joke from Nicki Minaj

Her fans had previously assumed that the rapper was working hard on her fifth studio album. It was only in June of this year that she released the new single "Megatron". It is quite possible that in the end it’s just a bad joke and Nicki Minaj doesn’t mean her plans that seriously. At least the fans hope so.

"I don't know why she's playing with us," says a user on Twitter. Another user comments, "She said that five years ago. She's a little late." © 1 & 1 Mail & Media / ContentFleet
