Nicki Minaj made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Tuesday and has seemingly confirmed that she is, in fact, dating fellow Queens, N.Y., rapper Nas.
DeGeneres started the segment with jokes about Minaj’s breast during Paris Fashion Week, and properly segued into asking about the alleged couple.
“It’s a wonderful breast,” DeGeneres said. “Is that your favorite breast, the left one?” Minaj joked and then said she’s “an equal-opportunity boob show-er. I love them both.”
“And does Nas like both of them the same as well?” DeGeneres asked.
Smooth, Ellen. So smooth.
“There’s a rumor y’all are dating, and if it’s true, I’m all for it. I love him so much—ever since ‘One Mic.’ That’s where I first found him,” DeGeneres said. “He’s fantastic and a really good guy.”
“He’s so dope,” Minaj responded. “He’s the king. He is the king of Queens, and I’d like to think I’m the queen of Queens. I have a lot of respect for him. And, you know, he’s kind of cute, too.”
“But have you had sleepovers yet, or is it just ... ?” DeGeneres asked.
“We have. Yup,” Minaj said. “I go to him. I just thought him coming to me was too forward. We didn’t do the ... ,” she said.
“Nasty?” DeGeneres asked.
“Yeah,” Minaj replied.
“I’m just chillin’ right now. I’m celibate. I wanted to go a year without dating any man. I hate men,” Minaj said. “I might make an exception to the rule for him, because he’s so dope.”
Well, there you have it. A two-for-one. New boyfriend. New ghostwriter.
