Rapper Nicki Minaj and the Covid-19 swollen testicles series are getting even more nuts. She claims that she received an invite to the White House. However, President Joe Biden’s administration said that it only gave her the option of a far less glamorous phone call.

On Wednesday, Minaj took to her Twitter to say that she scored the invite to the White House, perhaps as a result of her hesitation to get the vaccine.

“The White House has invited me & I think it’s a step in the right direction. Yes, I’m going. I’ll be dressed in all pink like Legally Blonde, so they know I mean business, “ Minaj tweeted, in part.

In conversation with NBC News, a White House spokesperson did note that officials did contact Minaj, but not for an in-person visit.

“As we have with others, we offered a call with Nicki Minaj and one of our doctors to answer questions she has about the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine,” the spokesperson told the outlet.

On Monday, Minaj broke the internet after making comments that one of the reasons she was refraining from getting a dose of the shot was due to her cousin in Trinidad allegedly having a friend whose testicles became swollen after getting the vaccine.

Countless experts such as Dr. Terrence Deyalsingh, the minister of health in Trinidad and Tobago where Minaj was born, and Dr. Anthony Fauci shot down the prospect of her sentiments having any truth.

In good old social media war fashion, Minaj also came toe to toe with MSNBC’s Joy Reid, Megan McCain, comedian Stephen Colbert, and Prime Minister Boris Johnson. On the other hand, Conservative commentator Candace Owens and Fox News’ Tucker Carlson gave their support.

And as the chronicle continues, it’s safe to say that it’s been quite the week for Minaj.
