Turns out the rapper is a big fan of British press conferences about COVID.

Boris Johnson and his chief medical officer vs. Nicki Minaj and her cousin’s friend’s swollen balls

The British prime minister and his chief medical officer probably didn’t expect to be discussing the alleged testicular misfortune of the rapper Nicki Minaj’s cousin’s friend during a Downing Street news conference. But that’s exactly what happened.

Top doc Chris Whitty used his public platform to criticize Minaj for implying in a tweet that COVID vaccines could cause impotence, saying: “There are a number of myths that fly around, some of which are just clearly ridiculous and some of which are clearly designed just to scare. That happens to be one of them.”

He added that people who pedal such “untruths” should be “ashamed.”

Whitty was referring to earlier comments by Minaj in which she said of the Met Gala — one of fashion’s glitziest events, which she didn’t attend — that organizers “want you to get vaccinated … if I get vaccinated it won’t for the Met. It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research.”

Why? Well … “My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent. His testicles became swollen. His friend was weeks away from getting married, now the girl called off the wedding. So just pray on it & make sure you’re comfortable with ur decision, not bullied.”

Minaj’s comments went viral and she later clarified her position, saying: “A lot of countries won’t let ppl work w/o the vaccine. I’d def recommend they get the vaccine. They have to feed their families. I’m sure I’ll b vaccinated as well cuz I have to go on tour, etc.”

After Whitty had spoken, Boris Johnson then became involved, saying: “I am not as familiar with the works of Nicki Minaj as I probably should be. But I am familiar with Nikki Kanani, a superstar GP of Bexley who has appeared many times before you, who will tell you vaccines are wonderful and everybody should get them.”

Little did we know that Minaj is an avid watcher of British coronavirus update press conferences as she retweeted the clip of Johnson, saying: “I love him even tho I guess this was a diss? The accent ugh! Yassss boo!!!”

She then posted a recorded message directed at Johnson in which she used the worst fake British accent since Dick Van Dyke in “Mary Poppins,” saying: “I was just calling to say you were amazing on the news this morning.” She went on to say that she is “actually British,” “went to Oxford,” “went to school with Margaret Thatcher” and would “love to send you my portfolio of my work, since you don’t know much about me. I’m a big, big star in the United States!”

Cardi B was unavailable for comment.

UK bets on boosters, vaccine for teens to prevent winter restrictions

The U.K. government is hoping that booster coronavirus vaccines, jabs for teenagers and potential mandatory vaccinations for health care workers will prevent the need for further restrictions during the coming winter months.

In a statement to parliament on Tuesday, Health Secretary Sajid Javid set out the government’s plan for the autumn and winter, when there are fears coronavirus cases could rise alongside cases of seasonal flu. The country’s health service is already facing significant waiting lists of people who have been unable to be treated during the pandemic.

Javid said that as children returned to school, more people returned to work and people met up indoors, the demands on the health service would increase. The government’s plan, Javid said, “gives the nation the best possible chance of living with COVID without the need for stringent social and economic restrictions.”

However, if Plan A fails, Javid said that a contingency Plan B had been written up, which would include the possibility of mandatory face coverings in certain settings and guidance to work from home. The potential for vaccine passports was also on the cards.

Central to the government’s plan are booster vaccines, which were recommended by the committee that advises the government on vaccination. Javid said the government had taken up the advice, meaning that from next week the National Health Service will start offering a third vaccine to those aged 50 and over, front-line health care workers, those living in care homes or with immunocompromised people and people with conditions that put them at higher risk of severe COVID-19. 

On Monday, the government announced that it would also be rolling out coronavirus vaccines to children aged 12 and over. This is seen as an important step in ensuring that children face minimal disruption at school. 

Javid also said that he believes it is “highly likely” that front-line NHS staff and those in wider social care settings will have to be vaccinated to protect those around them. The government is consulting on this; currently, vaccines are only mandated for care home staff in England. 

Other measures that the government hopes will prevent significant rises in cases are continued free coronavirus testing and the wearing of facemasks in crowded and enclosed spaces. 

The final pillar of the government’s plan is to “look beyond our shores” in working to accelerate access to vaccines elsewhere. The U.K. has promised to donate 100 million coronavirus vaccines. As of last month, the U.K. had sent only a tiny proportion of these doses.
