Nicki Minaj is setting the record straight about her retirement from music.

Back in September, Nicki first expressed her decision to take a step back from her music career to focus on her family life.

At the time, Nicki wrote to her fans in a since deleted tweet: “I’ve decided to retire & have my family. I know you guys are happy now. To my fans, keep reppin me, do it til da death of me, in the box- cuz ain’t nobody checkin me. Love you for LIFE.”

However, she dropped a song the next month.

In a new interview with Billboard she clarifies a bit more: “I love music and interacting with fans, so I can’t really see taking myself completely away. But I want to be open to other possibilities in my life. I do believe it is important to become a woman outside of the magnifying glass. I have to make sure that I’m well-rounded as a human being.”

She also promises she’s not quite done yet — “I’m a perfectionist and love topping myself, so as long as I love music, I’ll always be doing that.”

Nicki Minaj has previously worked with the likes of David Guetta, Major Lazer, and more.
