Nicki Minaj is living her best life thanks to her decision to embrace sober living.

On Thursday, night, the rapper tweeted, “I used to b happy when I was high. Now I’m happy when I’m sober.” But she added, “No judgement to anyone,” just “Be gentle with yourself.” That announcement came shortly after Minaj shared a video on the social media platform of herself making fried chicken which prompted many of her fans to joke that she must have the munchies. In response to the clip, one follower asked “baby are you high?” to which the pop star replied, “No I’m sober & loving life. You?”

However, that response inspired her fans to start sending Minaj a bunch of images from her past where they felt like she looked particularly high, prompting her to explain, “My eyes naturally look like that and ppl always think I’m high when I’m not wearing makeup.” She jokingly added, “Plus my eyes are naturally gray & I was born in the Caribbean islands of Cuba. The 1st paragraph was 💯 true tho.” She also admitted that, to be fair, it might not always be the shape of her eyes playing tricks on people as when another follower sent her an old photo asking her to “explain this day” she said, “This has been photoshopped for years btch [sic]. Yes I was high tho.”

These days, Minaj has a lot to celebrate about her life after marrying Kenneth Petty in October 2019 and giving birth to her first child, a baby boy, shortly after in September 2020. While she has yet to reveal the name of her and Petty’s son, Minaj’s fans have already given the baby their own nickname—Simba— and the rapper revealed in some cute videos of her toddler shared on Instagram that she lovingly refers to him as “papa bear.”
