About a month ago, the Internet was going nuts because it seemed Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill had not only made their relationship official, but were ready to make it permanent and get engaged. Nicki had been dropping hints all over social media before posting a picture of what we all thought was an engagement ring. And she’s never spoken about it again, but she’s also never said she’s NOT engaged… but Meek Mill sure set the record straight.
Most recently, his relationship with Nicki Minaj has been the subject of rigorous speculation, with various outlets reporting that a ring he bought her in Miami was an engagement ring. It wasn’t. “It’s definitely real,” he says of their relationship, “but it ain’t really time to get married yet. We’re still learning each other, feeling each other out.” Not that it matters: the story has been printed. Meek’s grandmother has been calling him about that one (“Whatever she sees on TV, she believes,” he says), and other celebrities, most notably Drake, have started congratulating them publicly, lending credence to the idea.
Right, so basically it was a bullshit stunt to drum up press? Come on, Nicki – you don’t need to stoop that low. What was the point of that?
Of course, if you want to see the whole thing, you have to subscribe to Jay-Z’s bullshit music streaming service, Tidal, which will run you a cool $9.99 a month. Or you can just troll YouTube for when fans upload the full thing there and watch it before it inevitably gets deleted.
As you can see from the screencap above, the full video consists of lots of Nicki & Bey eating burgers, having ~silly girl time~ and, well, feelin’ themselves. So there’s that.
Nicki Minajonce claimed she would never date a rapper because it’s too much – both people being in the industry, traveling the world and trying to build their career. How could a relationship blossom? Well, one such relationship did indeed seem to blossom between Nicki and rapper Meek Mill. The pair only went public with their relationship a couple of months ago, but it seems like things are getting serious.
How serious, you ask? Well, they’re engaged already! Nicki dropped a cryptic hint on Twitter on Wednesday, though she could just be teasing. It wouldn’t be the first time she’s misled her followers, but that hasn’t stopped rampant speculation that they’re planning to tie the knot.
Some of you may not know or remember this, but before Nicki Minaj became one of the biggest female rappers in history, she was just Onika Maraj, a wannabe child actress in New York City who attended theatre school to prep her for life in the bigtime. Someone actually dug up a clip from this period, showing Nicki rehearsing for a production and getting really, really into it. Perhaps too into it. And it’s hilarious.
Glad to see she hasn’t really changed much from her early days. Stay true, girl.
There’s not really much to say about this one, but then, perhaps words aren’t necessary when it comes to Nicki Minaj‘s 2015 calendar. It’s ass and titty heaven, so I’ll just leave these behind a cut for you and you can enjoy on your own time. You’re welcome – Merry Christmas and happy 2015!
Nicki Minajreleased her video for ‘Anaconda’ last month and pretty much EVERYONE was talking about it. It was definitely a NSFW affair, but if anyone can bring things back down to earth a bit, it’s Ellen DeGeneres. She decided to create her own version of the ‘Anaconda’ video – or rather, hilariously insert herself in the original – and the results are amazing.
Usher has always thought he was Michael Jackson reincarnate (even before MJ was dead), so it’s no surprise to me that he’s continuing to try to morph into the King of Pop. It’s not happening, of course, but that doesn’t seem to discourage him. His new single is called ‘She Came to Give It to You’, which is like ‘Blurred Lines’ redux. Because we needed another ‘Blurred Lines’, of course.
Nicki Minaj features in the song/video and Drake is even there, splurging on a bunch of bags of chips (well, he was there behind-the-scenes, anyway). Live large, man.
