Nicki Minaj Opens Up About Sobriety: ‘Be Gentle with Yourself’

Nicki Minaj opened up about her sobriety in a series of tweets shared on Twitter.

After a Twitter user asked if she was high, she replied, “No I’m sober & loving life. You ?”

In a second tweet, Minaj added, “I used to b happy when I was high. Now I’m happy when I’m sober. No judgement to anyone. Be gentle with yourself. 🎀.”‘

“My eyes naturally look like that and ppl always think I’m high when I’m not wearing makeup. Plus my eyes are naturally gray & I was born in the Caribbean islands of Cuba. The 1st paragraph was true tho,” Nicki shared in the final tweet.


Nicki welcomed her first child, a son, with husband Kenneth Petty in 2020.

During an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, she said that bringing a baby into the world “has made me see more good in people” and “more good in the universe.” She added, “It makes you more of a forgiving person. When I look at my son, I’m reminded that I am so blessed. So when you have a little baby, you are reminded every day like, ‘Oh my God. Thank you God for this little gift.’”
