Nicki Minaj confused people on Twitter with her strange stories around the Covid vaccine that went viral, so naturally someone asked the Prime Minister about them.

Boris Johnson insisted he isn't familiar with the works of the Super Bass singer, and prefers to listen to doctors instead.

Now Nicki has hit back at Boris in a bizarre voice note, claiming she is actually British.

Under a series of Union Jack flags, the singer wrote: "Send this to the prime minister & let him know they lied on me. I forgive him. No one else. Only him."

She then shared a voice note aimed at Boris Johnson.

Putting on a posh English accent, Nicki said: "Yes. Hello, Prime Minister Boris! It's Nicki Minaj. I was just calling to tell you that I thought you were so amazing on the news this morning."

"I'm actually British. I was born there. I, I went to university there, I went to Oxford. I went to school with Margaret Thatcher. And she told me so many nice things about you," she joked.

Reacting to the news that Boris doesn't know her music, she offered: "I'd love to send you my portfolio of my work, since you don't know much about me. I'm a big big star in in the United States."

Someone else tweeted the video of the awkward exchange from the earlier press conference.

Professor Chris Whitty slammed Minaj for claiming that covid vaccines are linked to impotence, calling her remarks "ridiculous."

The Anaconda star tweeted to her 22 million followers last night: "My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent. His testicles became swollen."

"His friend was weeks away from getting married, now the girl called off the wedding. So just pray on it & make sure you’re comfortable with ur decision, not bullied.”

Responding to her claims, Whitty said during the conference: “There are a number of myths that fly around … some of which are just clearly ridiculous and some of which are clearly designed just to scare."

He added: "That happens to be one of them. That is untrue.

“There are a group of people with strange beliefs and that’s fine, and they make their own choices. People are adults they are allowed to make their own choices."

“And many of those people, I regret to say, I think know that they are peddling untruths but they still do it. In my view, they should be ashamed.”

Boris Johnson used the opportunity to promote the work of doctors instead.

“I’m not as familiar with the work of Nicki Minaj as I probably should be but I am familiar with Nikki Kanani, superstar GP of Bexley.

“She will tell you that vaccines are wonderful and everybody should get them. So I prefer to listen to Nikki Kanani.”
