According to Nicki Minaj, she's not "lowering standards" by dating Kenneth Petty.
The 36-year-old rap star's decision to date the convicted felon has been widely questioned, but Nicki has now hit back at her critics, saying they don't have any right to doubt her life choices.
Speaking on Queen Radio, the 'Anaconda' hitmaker said: "When a person is with a n**** that loved them before they had a dime in their pocket...? How do you not understand that? How do you not understand happiness versus clout?
"How f***ing dare you talk about lowering standards."
Nicki insisted she has her relationship priorities in the right order.
