Nicki Minaj confirmed that she wouldn’t be attending over the event’s safety protocols. The Metropolitan Museum of Art requires all visitors age 12 and older to be vaccinated against COVID-19 in accordance with New York’s mandate requiring proof of vaccination for indoor activities amid the pandemic. The same applies to this year’s Met Gala.
But minutes before the biggest night in fashion kicked off Monday, Minaj revealed on Twitter that she recently contracted COVID-19 and declared, “If I get vaccinated it won’t for the Met.”
“They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. if I get vaccinated it won’t for the Met,” she tweeted. “It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research. I’m working on that now. In the meantime my loves, be safe. Wear the mask with 2 strings that grips your head & face. Not that loose one.”
