Nicki Minaj revealed why she did not attend the 2021 Met Gala. She has not yet been vaccinated, nor will she until she feels she’s “done enough research.” “They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. if I get vaccinated it won’t for the Met,” she wrote on Twitter. Additionally, Nicki had been scheduled to perform at the 2021 MTV VMAs that took place on Sunday but she dropped out days prior to the event. Responding to a tweet, Nicki admitted to having covid. “I was prepping for vmas then i shot a video & guess who got COVID? Do u know what it is not to be able to kiss or hold your tiny baby for over a week? A baby who is only used to his mama? Kylie Jenner, Zendaya and Sarah Jessica Parker are also among celebs skipping this year.
The Met Gala took place Monday night in New York City. Some of the world’s most famous people served amazing looks. This year’s theme – In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.
They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. if I get vaccinated it won’t for the Met. It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research. I’m working on that now. In the meantime my loves, be safe. Wear the mask with 2 strings that grips your head & face. Not that loose one 🙏♥️
