Nicki Minaj Basically Almost Confirms That She and Nas Are Dating

“Let’s talk about the Paris fashion show, and what happened to your breast,” Ellen DeGeneres says in this interview with Nicki Minaj, before grabbing the keys, hopping in the drivers seat and guiding the conversation straight to Nas.


Ellen starts out by asking Nicki if she likes both of her breasts the same. Nicki says that she does, but Ellen uses this opening to ask how Nas feels about them. What follows is a moment of silence, then a full-throated cackle from Nicki, which we can (and should?) accept as a confirmation that they’re dating, a rumor that has been floating around since Minaj posted this picture of them earlier this month at Sweet Chick, a fried chicken restaurant in New York City that Nas co-owns.

“He’s the king of Queens,” Nicki says, “and I’d like to think I’m the queen of Queens.” Yes, girl, fine, sure, but an answer please about whether or not you and Nas are dating? She demurs. “He’s a rap legend, and so I have a lot of respect for him, but he’s kinda cute, too.”

Ellen just wants an answer. They have “sleepovers,” but Nicki always goes to his house — the better to leave when she wants and the better to be in control. Other things I learned: Nicki Minaj hates men; she wanted to be celibate for a year; she and Nas have yet to “do the nasty.” Oh, also, Nas didn’t know Nicki was going to say anything about them. Surprise!


Well. this certainly didn’t take long: it looks like Mariah Carey and Bryan Tanaka are back together. The evidence? According to Lainey Gossip, they were spotted at Nobu a few days ago; he was feeding her and they were both apparently “eating out of each other’s mouths.” which I hope only menas a Lady and the Tramp-spaghetti style situation and nothing else.


Lainey chalks this up not to true love (duh), but to Mariah’s incessant need to have someone around her to “glorify her at every moment.” I love Mariah and will forever and every single thing about that reads and feels true to me!

Congratulations(?) again, you crazy kids. Bryan — good luck.

Ladies, is this a thing? Do you guys have a favorite boob? I can say for a fact that I have never discussed a favorite nut over a dude chit-chat.

Full disclosure I like them both.
