White House denies inviting Nicki Minaj after star says she got invite over vaccine tweets

They would’ve had to rename it the Pink House.

Nicki Minaj claimed Wednesday that she was invited to the White House after a series of tweets about the COVID-19 vaccine, but a White House official told the Daily News that was not the case.

Rather, the official said the White House offered Minaj the opportunity to speak to a member of President Biden’s coronavirus task force about the efficacy of vaccines.

“As we have with others, we offered a call with Nicki Minaj and one of our doctors to answer questions she has about the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine,” the official said.

It was not immediately clear if that call will take place.

Minaj had people excited after she tweeted: “The White House has invited me (and) I think it’s a step in the right direction. Yes, I’m going. I’ll be dressed in all pink like ‘Legally Blonde’ so they know I mean business. I’ll ask questions on behalf of the (people) who have been made fun of for simply being human.”

“If you guys have questions you’d like me to ask, leave(them) in the comments,” she wrote in a follow-up tweet. “You’ll see it in real time with full transparency.”

The “Super Bass” artist, 38, announced Monday that she wouldn’t be attending the Met Gala in part because the event required all attendees to be vaccinated.

She followed that up by saying her cousin in Trinidad’s friend’s testicles became swollen after he got the vaccine, to the point that his bride-to-be called off their wedding. Trinidad health minister Terrence Deyalsingh said Wednesday there had been “no reported such side effects or adverse event of testicular swellage in Trinidad.”

Minaj went on to say that she would likely get vaccinated, eventually, so that she could go on tour.
