AceShowbiz - Nicki Minaj says seeing her boobs "spilling out" of her 2022 Met Gala outfit "cemented" decision to get a breast reduction. The 41-year-old music star wore a black, strapless feathery gown to the glitzy fashion event in New York City last year, but she spent the whole evening worrying about a wardrobe malfunction because the cups on the bustier were just a little bit too small.
Looking back on a photo of the dress for Vogue's "Life In Looks" YouTube series, she explained, "I just realized just this moment that actually there was something good that came out of this. It's [this dress] what really cemented the fact for me that I had to get my breast reduction."
Nicki added, "I did my fittings and stuff ... I loved what the outfit was giving but I said, You guys, listen, look these boobs are gonna be spilling out.' And by the time we were ready to go, I looked in the mirror, I said, Guys, my boobs are still spilling out. And Naomi Campbell was walking in and out of the room looking at me like, 'Girl, let's go.' I knew before we even left the room that the boobs were about to have a night of their own."
Nicki confirmed over the summer that she had gone under the knife for a boob reduction operation and recently admitted she now feels "at peace" with her body. She told Vogue, "Recently, I had to get a breast reduction, and actually I love it. I used to want a bigger butt, and now I look back and realize how silly that was. So - love your curves, and love your non-curves. There's nothing wrong with any of it."
"I just looked at a video that I posted on Instagram when I was 25, and I would ... pay to look like that right now. But today I can say that I’m at peace with who I am and how I look," she added.
