QUEEN RAPPER NICKI MINAJ OPENS UP ABOUT SOBRIETY & HAPPINESS: 'BE GENTLE WITH YOURSELF'
On Thursday (April 21), the Queen rapper opened up to all 24.9 million of her Twitter followers by explaining how she moved on from her use of marijuana as a coping mechanism and, in turn, has grounded herself and found a source of natural joy, free of stimulants.
"I used to b happy when I was high," Nicki wrote in part. "Now I'm happy when I'm sober. No judgment to anyone. Be gentle with yourself."
She continued, remarking on how her past lifestyle choices still linger in this new chapter of her life, partly due to genetic factors that are out of her control.
"My eyes naturally look like that and ppl always think I'm high when I'm not wearing makeup," Nicki said. "Plus my eyes are naturally gray & I was born in the Caribbean islands of Cuba. The 1st paragraph was true tho."
The multi-platinum rapper-turned-mother has transformed into a nurturing, and self-reflective guardian since the birth of her son Papa in September 2020.
