The “MEGATRON” rapper went off on Apple Music’s “Queen Radio” in defense of her relationship with convicted felon Kenneth Petty. “When a person is with a n***a that loved them before they had a dime in their pocket?” she asked. “How do you not understand that?”

“How do you not understand happiness vs clout?” Minaj continued. “How f**king dare you talk about lowering standards.” Minaj said, “you hoe’s to wake up” and stop searching for material things. “It’s the truth, money cannot buy me happiness and good sex.”
