Nicki Minaj Describes Being "Painfully Reclusive" During Her Off Season

It was music that brought her out of it.

Even Nicki Minaj feels like being a shut-in sometimes.

In a new Instagram post, the rapper opened up about being "painfully reclusive" during her off season, and how it was music — specifically, her collabs with Ariana Grande and Jason Derulo — that convinced her to get out of bed.

"Got some more [platinum] plaques today," Nicki wrote alongside a photo collage that included the album art for "Side to Side and "Swalla." "Look at God. Jehovah Jireh, my provider. Both of these songs were sent to me during my off season when I was turning everything down & being painfully reclusive. I remember rolling out of bed for both of these even tho I rlly just wanted to watch reruns of Snapped & Forensic Files."

"Now they've both gotten me so many plaques in so many diff countries," she continued. "Thank you to Ari & Jason for trusting me w/your work. To the ppl all around the world who show us your support, I love you."

Who else is wondering if Nicki's season of being "painfully reclusive" had anything to do with her split from longtime boyfriend Meek Mill? We'll have to wait until she drops her next album to find out, it seems.

"I have some great things in store for my day 1's...and I will elaborate on that time in my life on my 4th album," she wrote, adding, "Go out there and live, you guys. Just go for it."
