Nicki Minaj fans get ‘Gag City’ trending and everyone wants an invite
Nicki Minaj’s highly anticipated Pink Friday 2 drops this week and Barbz have gotten the hashtag #GagCity trending in celebration – and it has taken off in ways they could never have expected.
“Gag City” started off as a simple tag by Nicki Minaj fans to let the rapper know how excited they are to be, well, gagged by Pink Friday 2, but within a matter of hours, it grew into so much more.
Barbz have gone as far as creating a digital “Gag City” using AI, complete with pink airports, mansions, skyscrapers, and festivals.
Quickly, fans started getting creative and generating “Gag City” chicken shops, marijuana dispensaries, radio halls, Targets, Best Buys, and museums. The list goes on!
It didn’t take long for the trend to catch on, either. Soon, celebrities and global brands started sharing their plans to touch down in “Gag City”, too.

Then eventually, real celebrities started joining in on the fun – including Nicki Minaj herself, of course.
Singer Tyla, who made waves this year with her hit single “Water” took to X (aka Twitter) to put her location as “Gag City”.
And Minaj herself tweeted “As we begin to prepare for landing, please make sure your tray tables are put back up & your seat belts are tightly fastened. The captain has activated the ‘no bathroom’ sign. If you look out the window, you’ll begin to see the beauty…clear waters, pink dolphins…”
This entire trend just further proves that Barbz, among other fandoms, really do run the internet now.
Pink Friday 2 will drop this Friday (8 December), Minaj’s birthday, and the singer has already warned that the people who wronged her will “never EVER recover” once they hear it.
The album will be shortly followed by a Pink Friday 2 tour, which will cover cities across North America, the UK, and Europe.
The tour will mark Minaj’s first solo headline tour in eight years, following up 2015-16’s The Pinkprint Tour.
Presale tickets are set to go on sale at 10am local time on 13 December, with dates, venues, and general sale info yet to come.
In the meantime, feel free to immerse yourself in the world of “Gag City”.
