Before kicking off her European tour next week, Nicki Minaj weighs in on a few things that have been making headlines recently. The Head Barb gushes over her beau Meek Mill, weighs in on her boss Lil Wayne suing Cash Money and gives her side on why Tyga was not a feature on her hit track “Truffle Butter.”
Sip her tea inside….
Nicki Minaj (above during rehearsals) is currently in L.A. gearing up for her upcoming “The Pinkprint” European tour with Trey Songz which kicks off in Sweden on Monday (March 16th).
But before she treks it across the pond, the “Only One” raptress called into BBC Radio 1 to chop it up with Charlie Sloth about a few things that are hot in the headlines. And, of course, her love life is at the top of the discussion.
Young Money’s first lady and Meek Mill have been spending plenty of time together and they will have plenty of time to grow closer as they are slated to go on a joint tour later this year. Neither of them have confirmed their coupledom status, but it’s pretty clear with their love-dovey Instagram posts and boo’d up body language when they’re out on the scene.
Opening up a bit, Nicki gushed on the vibe she shares with the MMG rapper saying,
“We’re just super compatible and, you know, we just be having fun together. When the kid do it, the kid get it done, nah mean? [laughs]”
Switching gears, the “Anaconda” raptress then weighed in on her boss Lil Wayne suing Birdman/Cash Money for $51 million after he wasn’t paid the $10 milli he was owed for The Carter V album and other legalities. Although she says she super loyal to Wayne, she isn’t choosing sides because she’s just as close to Birdman. She said,
“People know I love Wayne and that I have loyalty towards him but I love Baby [Birdman] too. I am very close to Baby and I don’t think people know that. I am banking on the fact that they will work this out like family. They’ve gone through things before, just like family does. It is what it is. They’re going to get through it. I’m not even going to think that way.”
On to the music…
The Head Barb talked about the video treatment for the heavily spinned track “Truffle Butter,” featuring Drake and Lil Wayne. She said the fact that “Truffle Butter” is the #1 urban and rhymic song in America without a video, she doesn’t really feel the need to make one. She said she may release a lyric video in the coming days.
Then, of course, her soon-to-be former label mate Tyga was brought up during the discussion. In a previous interview with the Breakfast Club, T-Raww made claims that Nicki dissed him when she took him off of “Truffle Butter” single and that’s why he said [in the VIBE interview] they no longer got along.
Nicki responds, “We don’t know how, but it magically ended up in Tyga’s hands. I told him, I was like, ‘You know that’s my song.’”
Somehow, the track leaked with him on it (she felt he was behind the leak) after she asked him not to put it out, and she felt disrespected. She spilled,
“I had always done stuff with him, took him on tour with me, and I thought it was disrespectful because I am the queen of Young Money [laughs].”
Then she said he apologized,
“But he texted me and he apologized. He said ‘you were always there for me’ and I respected him for that. I’m a very forgiving person. As long as you can come to your senses after the fact and remember who was there and who supports you, then it’s all good. He’s entitled to make a mistake every now and then, and we handled it as such.”
After clearing that up, she was then asked to weigh in on the Chris Brown baby drama, which she responded,
“I don’t have thoughts on another man’s child. I don’t have any thoughts on another man’s penis. I don’t care.”
Well there you have it.
