“Wait Barbz, this is serious.”
It’s safe to say Nicki Minaj wasn’t the biggest fan of Jinkx Monsoon back when RuPaul’s Drag Race season five was originally airing on television— and she wasn’t shy about sharing her thoughts on social media.
Recently, TikTok creator @mradamd unsurfaced a tweet from the queen of rap talking about how mad she was that Monsoon had made it very far in season five.
The “Starships” rapper wrote:
“Wait Barbz, this is serious. I’m mad [Jinkx] made it this far in Drag Race. Yes, great comedy but [Roxxxy Andrews’] face be servin beat REALTness hunty!”
Well, it turns out that this one post comparing Monsoon to Andrews is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Minaj’s thoughts on the top three of Drag Race season five – and all of these hilarious tweets from 2013 are still up on the social network.
Below you can see the tweet referenced on TikTok.
Minaj’s other posts related to Drag Race in 2013 include responding to a Twitter user who tried to defend Monsoon over Andrews. The fan wrote:
“Gworl, Jinkx has been improving EVERY week while Roxxxy has been struggling.”
“[Jinkx’s] makeup tho. Nah son,” the queen of rap replied.
Another tweet showed Minaj acknowledging that Monsoon and Alaska did a better job in the acting challenge that took place in the top three of season five. The rapper tweeted:
“But when it came to the acting this week, I had to admit [Jinkx] and Alaska did THAT! They’re also nice ppl. So idk...it’s tough to decide.”
This last tweet was a little kinder to Monsoon, but it was clear that Minaj was still clearly not rooting for her to win the show back then.
The “Super Bass” rapper’s replies were flooded with fans either defending Monsoon, rooting for Alaska, or agreeing with Minaj. Nonetheless, Monsoon was crowned the winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race season five and is now back to compete in the all-winners edition of All Stars.
RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 7 is now streaming on Paramount+.
