Nicki Minaj 'Literally' Calls Out People On Social Media

Nicki Minaj

(Radio.com) Nicki Minaj has a public service announcement for anyone messing around with the word "literally." Stop it. Minaj tweeted a screenshot explaining how the word has been co-opted in recent years.

It used to mean "in a literal or strict sense" and was considered to be the opposite of "figuratively," which described something metaphorically taking place.

But it has since been used more and more colloquially to describe something actually happening. "Literally" in many ways has become the new "figuratively." And Minaj is over it. She tweeted, "U guys, pls stop saying u were 'literally' dying laughing. B+++ if u were 'literally' dying laughing you'd be dead right now." Read more here.
