Celeb Halloween: From ‘Nicki Minaj’s cousin’s friend’ to Trevor Noah’s ‘The Weekday’


Nov 2, 2021

Halloween was a real (trick or) treat this year judging by all the silly, spooky and downright hilarious costumes.

Here are some of our top celebrity picks…


One costume that had tweeps in complete hysterics was by former professional skater Adam Rippon who paid homage to Nicki Minaj’s cousin’s friend with his Halloween costume.

The athlete poked fun at the rapper, who in September infamously tweeted how the friend of her Trinidadian cousin had a bizarre side effect to the COVID-19 vaccine – swollen testicles.

The rapper’s revelation snowballed into a media frenzy which was aptly hailed #BallGate.

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

And Adam cashed in with the cheeky costume, posting a picture of him wearing Nicki Minaj T-shirt, a bandage from being vaccinated (or stabbed) in his arm, and some two questionable looking flesh-coloured balloons, peeping out of his trousers.

In his hand, the 31-year-old carried his vaccination card, which revealed he “modernatron shots shots shots” at a clinic site “in a sticky Benz” – which are references to Nicki Minaj’s 2019 song Megatron.

He captioned the post: “I’m Nicki Minaj’s cousin’s friend. The swelling is going down so that’s good!”.
