Nicki Minaj has officially confirmed that yes, she and rapper Nas have sleepovers. In layman’s terms, they are totally dating.

Rumors of the pair’s romance started earlier this month when the female emcee shared a snapshot snuggled up next to the Queens native. Although she didn’t confirm their relationship, you know the saying, a picture is worth a thousand words.

So while on a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the talk show host OF COURSE grilled Nicki about her budding courtship with Nas.

“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,” Ellen said. “He’s fantastic and a really good guy.”

“He’s so dope,” Nicki explained. “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?” DeGeneres asked. Nicki confirmed that they do in fact have sleepovers and she goes to his house.

But believe it or not, they haven’t done the “nasty.” She said, “I’m just chillin’ right now. I’m celibate. I wanted to go a year without dating any man. I hate men.”

She did, however, suggest that, “I might make an exception to the rule for him, because he’s so dope.” The host hopes she reconsiders, saying, “I’m all for that, because I think he’s fantastic.”


Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
