Nicki Minaj Hilariously Had ‘No Idea’ Her New Fragrance Was Being Released Last Week: ‘Was Informed of Nothing’

Nicki Minaj‘s new fragrance made its debut a bit earlier than planned — and then it sold out.

On Saturday, the rapper and singer, 40, revealed on X (formerly known as Twitter), that she was unaware of the release of her new Pink Friday 2 Eau de


“I had no idea. Was informed of nothing. Didn’t get a link to post. Just woke up one day & boom!,” Minaj wrote as she shared a screenshot of the perfume. “Saw y’all discussing it.”

The “Barbie” artist added, “Noreen from my fragrance co advised that she’ll be getting back to me w/answers on this right away,” adding that she apparently “had no clue either.  Go figure.”

Minaj then shared a GIF of actress Meagan Good looking confused in Amazon series Harlem before sharing her surprise about a link to buy the fragrance being “real” and the perfume being “physically in STORES?!?!!!!”

“Wow. Well boo, thank you for your support.   I don’t even have the official box ORRR bottle yet,” Minaj wrote. “I was told it would be on Amazon 1st & JCPenny following week or2 but maybe plans did the ol switcheroo.”

Since the star’s post, the product sold out at JCPenney and Minaj has reshared a number of posts from her fans praising the new fragrance (and the star herself). She also jokingly told her fans to be nice to the store employees while shopping! “Yoooo 🥴 I can only imagine what the barbz been putting the staff through chi. 😩 Y’all better be on y’all best behavior. I can see y’all even when I’m not there! 👀” she wrote.
