Nicki Minaj Revealed She Got a Breast Reduction

And clarified her position on body positivity after that Miley Cyrus incident.



Nicki Minaj is opening up about a recent surgery while getting candid about her thoughts on body positivity. In a new interview with Vogue for its December cover story, the rapper and mother revealed that she recently underwent a breast reduction that made her rethink the way she looks at curves.

“Recently, I had to get a breast reduction, and actually I love it,” she told the publication. “I used to want a bigger butt, and now I look back and realize how silly that was. So — love your curves, and love your non-curves. There’s nothing wrong with any of it.”

Minaj also opened up about being at “peace” with her current body after welcoming her son, whom she refers to as Papa Bear, in Sept. 2020.



“I just looked at a video that I posted on Instagram when I was 25, and I would fucking pay to look like that right now,” Nicki shared. “But today I can say that I’m at peace with who I am and how I look.”

She added, “I have to say this as a Black woman, though. I’ve made certain choices for my son, to not give him sweets and candy and juices, because of illnesses like diabetes that run in our community. I’m not in favor of body positivity if it means unhealthy bodies. That’s bull. It’s not believable, so let’s stop pretending.”

Minaj’s insights come years after notably spoke out about body representation in the music industry ahead of the 2015 VMAs, spurring a now-infamous feud with Miley Cyrus. The rapper also seemed to touch on that event in the interview, explaining, “When I hear the word mean, I think about the core of who the person is. I always tell people that the difference between being mean and being a bitch is that bitch passes. Bitch comes and goes. Mean is who you are.”

Nicki continued, “I could be the biggest bitch, at the height of my bitch-ness, but if the person I may be cussing out at that time needs something from me, I’m going to give it to them. I have to be able to look in the mirror and be okay with myself.”
