Queens, New York stand up!
Word on the street is Nicki Minaj and Nasir Jones are dating after Minaj posted a photo on Instagram of the two hanging out together a few weeks back. The internet almost immediately had a field day with the photo.
These two Queens rappers are no strangers to one another. They’ve come across each other’s paths before, even shared a kiss in Minaj’s music video for her 2012 single, ‘Right By My Side.’
More rumors began to circulate a couple days after Minaj’s appearance at the Billboard Music Awards, so she appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres show to talk about her rumored boothang.
“He’s so dope…he’s such a king,” Minaj said. “Shout out to Queens, New York, we’re both from Queens. He’s the king of Queens, and I’d like to think I’m the queen of Queens. He’s a rap legend, and I have a lot of respect for that. And he’s kinda cute too.”
Have you had sleepovers yet?” DeGeneres asked.
“We have! Yup. I go to (his house)…I just thought him coming to me was too forward. Let me clarify, we didn’t do the…”
“The nasty?” Ellen said.
“No, because I’m just chilling right now, I’m celibate. I wanted to go a year without dating any men, I hate men. But I might make an exception to the rule for him,” Minaj said, revealing Nas told her to say hello to Ellen for him. “(But) he definitely doesn’t know I’m really going to talk to you about it.”
