The Barbz are on to Nicki Minaj. Yesterday morning (Aug. 16), Minaj changed her name on Twitter from "Ms. Minaj" to "Mrs. Petty." After that subtle change, fans were quick to comment on the difference.

"QUEEN NICKI MINAJ IS HAPPILY GETTING MARRIED, SOME SAID SHE IS ALREADY MARRIED TO BOY FRIEND KENNETH PETTY. NICKI MINAJ CHANGED HER NAME TO NICKI PETTY. WISHING YOU A HAPPY MARRIAGE. AM HAPPY FOR YOU NICKI," one fan wrote. "Wait if @NICKIMINAJ changed her name does this mean she got married and her album drops soon imma love that for me," another fan wrote.

A couple days ago, Minaj announced on Queen Radio that she is getting married sooner than later. "We filed for the marriage license and we still had to pick it up and I was traveling, by the time I came back, we had to renew it again," Minaj revealed. "From that time, you have 90 days to get married. That was about a week ago, so now I have about 80 days."

Although marriage is an exciting topic for Minaj, she is also focused on her music. The New York rapper is working on her follow-up to her Queen LP. If the Pink Friday spitter is married, she won't have an extravagant celebration until after her project is released. With this agreement in place, Minaj and Kenneth Petty plan to live a happy life.

"I have to work on my album and I have a lot to focus on that I don't want to do the big wedding now. We'll do the big wedding later," Minaj began. "I'll be married before my album comes out, but will have my wedding after the album comes out. Before the 90 days is over, yes, I will be married. I'm very happy about that because my baby makes me so happy."
