In February 2020, Minaj talked with Meghan Trainor on her Queen Radio show about her weight loss process. Minaj says that after a while, she fully committed herself to eating healthy. "For example, I was trying to do this diet and I kept putting it off," she said. "I didn't think I could have the discipline in what I ate. Once my mind was committed to it, my body committed to it."

"And being easy on yourself. Like, nothing and no one is perfect."
