Ellen grills Nicki Minaj on Nas dating rumors, and Nicki can't deal

Ellen has a magical way of getting her celebrity guests to reveal their deep, dark secrets, especially about who they’re dating. Rumors have been swirling about Nicki Minaj and rapper Nas secretly dating ever since Nicki posted a photo of the two looking cozy on her Instagram a week ago. Only KINGS recognize QUEENS. @sweetchicklife has the best food 👅 congrats @nas 😜 A post shared by Nicki Minaj (@nickiminaj) on May 9, 2017 at 10:53pm PDT So, of course, Ellen being Ellen just couldn’t resist bringing up the potential coupling. And Nicki being Nicki had a pretty interesting response. “He’s the King of Queens, and I like to think I’m the Queen of Queens,” she said. “He’s a rap legend, so let’s just say I have a lot of respect for him, and he’s kind of cute too.” She also explained that although she wanted to remain celibate for a year because she “hates men,” she might just have to make an exception to the rule for the dope King of Queens. Hmmm … so, they’re dating, right? Nicki won’t say so directly. But in the mean time, watch Nicki giggle and squirm as she tries to dodge Ellen’s tough questions.
