Even world-famous ultra-rich celebrities don’t get to choose what they do with their bodies. From Robert Bridge at strategic-culture.org:
Although Nicki Minaj may eventually cave in the face of the mob’s relentless full court press, her ‘fifteen minutes of Covid fame’ has awakened many people to their rights.
Occasionally a peek behind the iron curtain of our powerful institutions happens through unorthodox ways, as was the case when a pop star decided to cancel her attendance at one of America’s premier social events because of vaccine requirements, thereby unleashing a veritable firestorm from sea to shining sea.
Nicki Minaj, the Trinidad-born rapper who has churned out a string of trashy smash hits over the last decade, is probably the last person I ever thought I’d be writing about. At the same time, it’s probable that many readers of this publication have ever heard of this hip-hop star as well. Until last week, that is.
The story begins in early September, when Minaj announced she would not be attending the Met Gala fundraising event at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City due to the Covid-19 vaccine requirement. Harmless enough, right? After all, ‘my body, my choice;’ if a citizen of a democracy comes to the conclusion that they don’t want to receive a drug courtesy of the pharmaceutical industry then everyone should respect that decision and move on. Sadly, those days of free choice are quickly coming to an end.
