After a lengthy social media hiatus, Nicki Minaj (real name Onika Maraj) took to Instagram today where she posted two images of herself with one-word caption reading “Friday.” Minaj was last active on social media in January 2021 when she published an image of herself with her friend Blac Chyna.
While Minaj was naked in the image except for two strategically placed heart-shaped pillows, she was dripping in bling including a Rafaello and Co. diamond earrings and a new Richard Mille 07-02 watch. As styled by DiAndre Tristan, she also wore custom Loewe sunglasses. (Find additional style details via @onikaswardrobe.)
In a contrast from the diamond on her neck and wrists, she also wore a pare of hot pink Crocs Classic clogs, adorned not with the usual plastic Jibbetz but with crystal-covered Chanel jewelry.

Astute Barbz noted that not long after Minaj posted today on social media, Robyn Rihanna Fenty stepped up with a follow. Minaj returned with the favor with a follow back. While the two Caribbean music creatives once followed each other on Instagram and Rihanna was featured on Minaj’s Pink Friday single “Fly,” the Bajan Boss unfollowed her for mysterious reason in March 2017.
Minaj last dropped music in 2020, a single with Nigerian singer Davido (real name David Adeleke) titled “Holy Ground.” While she’s been quiet musically, she been busy personally. She married Kenneth Petty in October 2019 and the following year in September, they had their first child, a baby boy, whose name hasn’t name hasn’t been announced.
