Nicki Minaj Gets Candid About What Being Single Meant For Her New Album

One can learn many things from a breakup, like the joys of sending reckless DMs or eating alone at a restaurant as you sneer at everyone condescendingly judging you. For Nicki Minaj , she learned that single life can actually be super inspirational. In her latest cover story for Elle, Minaj discussed what it was like being single for the “first time in my life” and how that affected her upcoming album.

“I went through a moment where I got to know myself again, and then I went through a moment where I got to know myself as the rapper again,” Minaj said. “And then I locked [myself] in the studio” — see? — and I didn’t want to leave. Spiritually, I’ve experienced more growth in the last six months of my life, of my career, than I have in the last eight years.”

In the past, Minaj has been linked to Safaree Samuels, Meek Mill, and, most recently, Nas. The two New York rappers reportedly split in late 2017, according to TMZ.

Elsewhere in the interview, the “Chun-Li” rapper described the challenges of being in relationships and how she got through the transition of being on her own again.

“I remember feeling like I could do anything at one time in my life and somewhere along the line, I just started second guessing myself, for whatever reason,” she said. “As soon as I realized that I could actually live and breathe, and eat and sleep, and walk and talk without having a boyfriend, something clicked in me.”

Minaj’s latest song, “Rich Sex,” is about why one shouldn’t have intercourse with brokies and fits nicely into the discussion she had during her cover story. Hopefully, when Queen arrives on August 10, fans will get a more complete look at Nicki’s thoughts about relationships, breakups, and everything in between.

Nicki Minaj Explains Why She Pushed Her Album Back

Nicki Minaj has been teasing a big announcement after canceling her recent appearance on Ellen this week. Considering your outlook on life, the reveal is either a blow for the Barbz or presents a silver lining. The good news is that Queen drops on August 10. Unfortunately, that means the album is pushed back from the original June 15 date.

“The album itself I think I want to put out on August 10,” Nicki said on Instagram Live. “I want to put out my second single, which I’m really, really excited about, and I want to now start an official countdown. I also want to do some things where I invite some of my actual fans to the studio and listen to the album and listen to the songs.”

The “Chun-Li” rapper previously announced the title and release date of her album at the Met Gala in classic Nicki fashion.

“I’m the bad guy and I wanted to make sure bitches knew that the bad guy is here,” Minaj told E! News in May. “Album dropping June 15th. It’s called Queen.”

Before the announcement, Nicki did tease fans on Instagram about her latest song, which looks to be the second single she references on Instagram. Minaj tagged YG, 2 Chainz, and Big Sean in a video with a caption that reads, “Big

Fans Think Nicki Minaj Is Dating Eminem After Her ‘Big Banks’ Verse

Nicki Minaj loves her punchlines, and her latest one is either an expert troll or… yeah, it has to be trolling. Today (May 25), YG released “Big Banks” featuring Minaj, 2 Chainz, and Big Sean. The subject matter of the Mustard-produced song is all there in the title, but it’s Nicki who goes slightly off topic. During her verse, she spits, “Back to back Maybach, stack the Ms / Told ‘em I met Slim Shady, bag the M / Once he go black, he’ll be back again.”

When a fan asked Nicki on Instagram if she was dating Eminem, she replied with a simple, “Yes.” However, the Queens rapper is known to joke around with her fans, especially on social media.

Could a Nicki and Em union potentially work? In an infamous 2017 Vulture interview, Eminem shared that he was on Tinder and discussed how the dating world is treating him.

“It’s tough,” Mathers said. “Since my divorce I’ve had a few dates and nothing’s panned out in a way that I wanted to make it public. Dating’s just not where I’m at lately.”

The Barbz have had a particularly stressful week after the “Chun-Li” rapper announced she was pushing back her album Queen. Depending on how much you ship Slim Shady and Minaj, this is great news.

Meek Mill Wishes Nicki Minaj ‘Said Nothing’ About His Incarceration

Meek Mill has been on a prolific press run since his release from prison. The Philadelphia rapper has been interviewed by outlets as varied as NBC’s Dateline and Hot 97. Today (May 10), Mill appeared on “The Breakfast Club” to discuss his opioid addiction, having conversations with Kanye West, and how it feels to be free. One of the most illuminating moments from the Philadelphia MC’s visit was him sharing his thoughts on his ex-girlfriend Nicki Minaj and her comments on his incarceration.

“I wasn’t feeling that,” Mill said. “She shouldn’t have said nothing. And we leave it at that. I don’t feel no way. She know I wasn’t feeling that.”

“When it comes to freedom and stuff like that, I don’t care who it is,” Meek continued. “This could be Safaree, this could be anybody — if I know something, and that man’s freedom is on the line and I could say something to help the situation, it’s right or wrong.”

In an April Beats 1 interview with Zane Lowe, Nicki was asked about Meek Mill and his ongoing issues with the criminal justice system. The Pinkprint rapper mentions that she had no problems with Genece Brinkley, the controversial judge who presides over Meek’s case.

“The judge in question did everything I asked of her,” Nicki said. “So I can’t bad-mouth her because I met her personally and I know what she said to us, and he [Meek] knows that.”

Nicki later told Lowe that she will go into more detail about Meek on her album. It looks like the former lovers both have a lot to get off their chest with their new music.

Nicki Minaj Debuts “Pinkprint” Jordan Westbrook 0 PE


words // Ian Stonebrook:

Who’s the latest artist with their own Air Jordans? You know it’s Nicki Minaj. Joining Drizzy on the short but strong list of entertainers with their own Jordans, Minaj just showed the world her “Pinkprint” Jordan Westbrook 0 PE.

Thinking out loud, Minaj took to IG to debut the new shoes and even made a joking jab at the Yeezys. Her PE of the Jordan Westbrook 0 — a lifestyle signature shoe for Russell Westbrook that’s yet to even see an official unveiling — keeps it glittery and glossy, sporting appropriate pink paneling, golden mudguards and rainbow soles. The Westbrook 0 carries somewhat of a Balenciaga meets Air Jordan 1 meets Air Jordan 1 silo, appearing to draw from JB’s heritage and Russ’s runway wardrobe.

Minaj will perform in the Jordan Westbrook 0 “Pinkprint” PE at tonight’s Jordan Brand Classic. Previous performers include Macklemore and Drake who also have their own Air Jordan PEs. As you may recall, Minaj wore Jordans on the cover art and in the video for the very viral “Anaconda” single. Could Nicki be the latest member of Jordan Brand? The move would make sense with her upcoming tour and the brand’s increased efforts in ladies/GS drops. Keep it locked to Nice Kicks for official info and let us know your thoughts on Nicki x JB in the comments section.

When you’re a girl but your custom #PinkprintJORDANS are about to shit on every male rapper who’s ever stepped FOOT in the sneaker game!!!! LMFAOOOOOOOOOOO ????????????????????????

Nicki Minaj, Snoop Dogg Celebrate With Drake At LA Tour Stop

Would You Like A Tour?…with guest appearances from Nicki Minaj and Snoop Dogg? If there were still any lingering rumors that things were sour between Drake and Young Money’s first lady, he put all of that to rest when Nicki joined him on stage in Los Angeles on Monday night (November 25).

Nicki joined Drake to perform “Make Me Proud,” after a very grand introduction. “Los Angeles, make some noise for one of the most beautiful, talented women in the entire world, Ms. Nicki Minaj,” he told the crowd.

Snoop also made his way to the stage, showing some West Coast love with a medley of “The Next Episode,” “Drop It Like It’s Hot,” and “Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang.” “This guy right here is one of the most important people, not only in music, but just in the world, one of the best people I’ve ever met in my life,” Drizzy told his fans.

In September Drake addressed his relationship with Nicki Minaj, telling MTV News, “That line in ‘Tuscan Leather’ isn’t exactly where I am in my life right now but like a year ago…eight months, seven months ago, it was how I felt,” he said. “I’d done something wrong and I wasn’t speaking to her.”

Since then, thing shave been resolved. “I think the dialogue actually between us was already opened up,” Drake said. “I had already solved that issue. I wrote that a while ago and I kinda felt guilty changing it. It was a sentiment that I had when I started this album and felt like that’s how it should be. The album should start one place and end in another.”
