Trinidad and Tobago born international recording artist, Nicki Minaj says she only now understands the usual behavior of fans who become overwhelmed by celebrity sightings and happenings. The ‘Anaconda’ rapper appeared on a social media live platform to celebrate the pregnancy reveal of fellow Caribbean native, Rihanna, on Monday.
In her video, Nicki said, “It’s a very special day because the queen is pregnant. I don’t know why I felt so emotional. I see why people always be saying like, ‘why ya’ll always be acting… like if a celebrity do something ya’ll be acting like it’s y’all, or y’all be acting so emotional about it.’ I finally see. Like I finally felt that for myself… being a fan and looking in and seeing Rih pregnant. I finally saw what y’all feel like to feel emotional or overjoyed for someone else.”
Rihanna revealed her pregnancy on the weekend, shooting photos with her soon to be baby daddy, A$AP Rocky, who she’s been romantically involved with officially, since the Summer of 2020.
Prior to confirmation of her pregnancy, Rihanna appeared at Sephora donning an oversized orange ensemble. Videos of the late night pop up appearance at the Manhattan store, where employees enthusiastically greeted the Fenty beauty creator, circled the web. There were rumors of her pregnancy since November when Rihanna was honored by the government of Barbados, and coined a National Hero.
Confirmation of the big news was all the rave on Monday.
