Nicki Minaj Responds to Eminem Dating Rumor: ‘I Love Him So Much’
Rumors have been circulating all weekend of the possibility that Nicki Minaj and Eminem are dating. But alas, it’s not true.
Minaj unconsciously (or maybe consciously) started the rumor when a fan asked her on Twitter if she was dating the Rap God. She responded, “Yes.” Then on Sunday (May 27), at the Boston Call Music Festival, Eminem told the crowd that he hopes that the dating rumors were true.
"Boston, how many of you want me to date Nicki Minaj?” he asked festivalgoers. “Well, god dammit, me too. Nicki, if you get this message, just text me later, we’ll talk about it."
On Monday (May 28), the Queen Barbz, herself, went on her Twitter account to officially squashed the rumors, however, she wouldn't mind having a first date with Em in the studio.
"LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. The fact that he’s silly & a goof just like me. Love him so much," she tweeted to her followers. "Em we need you on the #Queen album. That’s where our 1st date will be; at the studio while I gaze into ur beautiful eyes as u write ur verse."
Dating rumors aside, Em and Minaj have collaborated once before. They have both appeared together under their rap alter egos Slim Shady and Roman Zolanski on "Roman's Revenge" from Minaj's debut studio album Pink Friday. So hopefully, these two creative lyrcists will get in the studio and record another diabolical track.
Minaj's next album, titled Queen, is due out in August.
