Days after revealing that her upcoming album Queen has been delayed until August, Nicki Minaj has taken to Twitter to shed some light on the inspirations behind the tracks, as well as her experiences with relationships in the past. The rapper opened up about her romantic history, as well as her own love life, which has been out of the public eye since the beginning of her career.

“#Queen, know your worth. I’ve been proposed to 3 times; asked by 4 boyfriends to have their child. Being emotionally, mentally, or physically abused just to crack a fake smile on the gram & show off a ring is not happiness. Being cheated on, humiliated, belittled… for the gram?” the singer wrote, following up with, “#Queen, know your worth. You were a Queen before him,” she wrote. “You’ll be a Queen after him. He can’t make or break you. Being equally yoked is what you should strive for. Spirituality is key. Once your spirit can soar on its own, then you are ready to ‘allow’ him the privilege of ur time.” She also addressed the importance of the ever-growing #MeToo and Time’s Up movements, writing that “having men treat you like dog shit because they’re famous or have money is the new era we live in. Word to the gram. Arguing w|other women while defending your abuser is the new era. Word to the gram. #Queen 8|10|18.”

Minaj is set to drop her album Queen on August 10, and we can expect to see a lot of references to her series of tweets and experiences. Read through them all below, and while we wait for the album, listen to her catchy singles “Barbie Tingz” and “Chun-Li.”
