Nicki Minaj on Nas dating rumors: ‘I’m celibate’

Nicki Minaj reveals she’s celibate.

On Tuesday, the “Anaconda” rapper swung by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” where she and DeGeneres exchanged jokes about her boob-baring look during Paris Fashion Week as well as rumors she’s dating fellow rapper Nas.

It all began when the daytime talk show host drilled Minaj about her barely-there ensemble. “Does the tape come with the outfit?” DeGeneres jokingly asked. “That wasn’t tape. That was an actual pastie—a metal pastie,” Minaj responded. “Isn’t it cute, you guys? Wouldn’t you all wear it?”

“It’s a wonderful breast,” said DeGeneres. “Is that your favorite breast, the left one?” Not to our surprise, Minaj was a good sport and played along, revealing she’s “an equal opportunity boob shower,” adding, “I love them both.”

“And does Nas like both of them the same as well?” DeGeneres asked.

“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,” the comedian told a visibly blushing Minaj. “He’s fantastic and a really good guy.”

“He’s so dope,” the “No Frauds” rapper admitted. “He’s the king. He is the King of Queens, and I’d like to think I’m the Queen of Queens.” Later, she added that he’s “a rap legend,” telling DeGeneres, “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 prodded once more.

“We have. Yup,” Minaj confessed. “I go to him. I just thought him coming to me was too forward.” But Minaj, whose split from Meek Mill is still pretty fresh, went on to “clarify” – “We didn’t do the…” she explained, implying they haven’t had sex. “Nasty?” asked DeGeneres. “Yeah,” responded Barbz.

“I’m just chillin’ right now. I’m celibate. I wanted to go a year without dating any man. I hate men,” Minaj continued before adding, “I might make an exception to the rule for him, because he’s so dope.” DeGeneres seconded the move, saying, “I’m all for that, because I think he’s fantastic.”

As previously reported, a photo of Minaj and Nas popped up on Instagram earlier this month, giving fans on social media plenty of reason to believe they’d found love. The photo in question, posted to Minaj’s account, was taken at Sweet Chick (co-owned by Nas) in New York City.
