Nicki Minaj opened up about her “engagement rings” on today’s Ellen.
The always entertaining 33-year-old rap star tried to explain what her diamond rings from Meek represents. “First of all, that’s not an engagement ring. I have two rings from this boy that likes me and he said that that’s my second ring and that if I get a third ring that that would be the engagement ring,” she said.
When Ellen asked if she wanted that third ring Minaj replied, “I don’t know. We’re still figuring each other out. And, in fact, I don’t even want to say I’m in a relationship anymore. I think when people hear that they go to, like, the mean place.”
Minaj then shared an anecdote about Valentine’s Day and how fans gave her grief because Mill didn’t post pics of her gifts on Instagram. “Meanwhile we were really in bed all day on Valentine’s Day and then I got up and opened these three amazing gifts… It just made me realize that no matter how great your life is you can’t even impress people. You just have to do you and make yourself happy… It’s better just to keep those things sacred.”
The “Super Bass” rapper added that she’s not concerned with labels like “relationship” or “engaged.” She simply wants to acknowledge that there’s a boy that likes her. Ellen quipped, “[A boy] that spent a lot of money on you hoping that you’d say you’re in a relationship. He’s not happy about you saying you’re single.”
“He and I are just two souls right now passing through the universe and I don’t know what’s going to happen,” she concluded.
