Nicki Minaj reveals 2022 Met Gala look is what ‘cemented’ her decision to get a breast reduction

Nicki Minaj has revealed that nearly spilling out of her 2022 Met Gala look is what ‘cemented’ her choice to undergo a breast reduction.

The 40-year-old rapper unveiled her reasoning while appearing in Vogue magazine’s Life In Looks segment.

‘I just realized just this moment that actually there was something good that came out of this,’ she noted as she was shown a photo from

fashion’s biggest night.

Minaj, real name Onika Maraj, was dressed in a pink and purple patterned cardigan with slicked back wet and wavy black hair in the Vogue clip.

She wore a matching purple beaded necklace as she explained about her black Burberry Met Gala look, ‘I said, “You guys, listen, look these boobs are gonna be spilling out.”‘

The mother-of-one continued, ‘And by the time we were ready to go, I looked in the mirror, I said, “Guys, my boobs are still spilling out.”‘

The songwriter also noted that she ‘knew before we even left the room that the boobs were about to have a night of their own.’

While doing a red carpet interview that night, she even commented on them as she cautiously kept her hands over her voluptuous chest.

The star quipped, ‘The only unplanned thing about my look is my boobs popping out, because they made my cup size a little small.’

She added jokingly, ‘Enjoy these ti****s, ’cause y’all ain’t gonna see that ever again.’ 

This past June the Bronx-bred entertainer proudly revealed her ‘new boobs’ in a social media clip promoting her collaboration with Ice Spice.

It came after a May 2022 Instagram Live in which the Starships hitmaker voiced her interest in breast reduction surgery.

‘I’m not gonna lie, somebody did tell me to get my boobs taken off, like a female in the industry,’ she dished at the time.

In her November 2023 cover interview with Vogue, she spoke about her cosmetic surgery stating, ‘Actually, I love it.’ 

She continued, ‘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.’
