Ellen DeGeneres grilled Nicki Minaj on Thursday about the rapper’s relationship with Meek Mill.
First, DeGeneres questioned Minaj about where her “engagement ring” was. Nicki explained that the bling in question was not from a proposal, rather “if I get a third ring that that would be the engagement ring.”
The female emcee was not only candid about the rock, but also candid about why she is now calling herself single. When asked if she is ready to get engaged, she responded: “You know, I don’t know. We’re still figuring each other out. And in fact, I don’t even want to say that I’m in a relationship anymore, because I think when people hear that, they go to like the mean place and try to like—not you, though. You’re super. I love you to death.”
DeGeneres continue to prompt Minaj into sharing more, but the female emcee remained mum. “I would rather not. You know, I used to be secretive. You guys asked me about that before on my pre-interview,” Minaj said. “I used to say, ‘I’m not in a relationship,’ even though I was in a 12-year relationship [with Safaree Samuels]…Now I feel like just going back to that and saying, ‘You know what? I’m single.”
The Trinidadian beauty added, “He [Meek] and I are just two souls right now passing through the universe, and I don’t know what’s going to happen. I just have learned over the years to just let things be and come and go as they are going to come and go.”
Minaj, who stars in Barber Shop: The Next Cut, out April 15, also had some fun with viewers during a live Facebook chat and explained what she does before she goes to bed.
