I respect you publicly being yourself @nickiminaj • So here I am being myself.

This is a video of me back in 2015 on stage taking the piss out of myself which is basically an hour of my set 🥲

It was made into a meme about 2 weeks ago. Is that what this is really about? And where this weird energy between us began?
Or maybe it was when you used me as a stair rail at the AMAs. That was also funny af 😂

If we can’t laugh in the lives we have been blessed with. What’s the point. It really isn’t that deep.

From the moment I met you to now I have shown you nothing but love and gratitude for how f***ing blessed I was to have you and @arianagrande who btw wrote Bang Bang with the insanely talented Max Martin which I found out today. Jesus. What a day. Sorry Ari. I never knew. Wild. Run that story everywhere please.

“I felt like I had won a competition” did back then and still do now.

I’m the first person to admit Bang Bang would NEVER have been what it was without you guys.

I’m sorry I got the story wrong all these years, I was told you heard the song and wanted to be on it by someone clearly gassing me up at the label. (Bless them and my naive ass) Thank you for clarifying I was wrong on that and Do it like dude 😂 Told me huh.

What a way for us to celebrate the 7 year anniversary of the song. 😩😂 Should we all go for dinner? No… Probably not right.. Too soon? Bang bang part two?… No…. Ok got it. Do it like a dude remix? Ok. I’ll stop.

Look, the song did it’s damn thing. I will never say you asked to be on the song ever again. Although all this drama means memes and man have the memes of me have kept me entertained all day. Swipe for a good old laugh.

Always love and light from me babes 🤍
