AceShowbiz - Nicki Minaj has finally responded to rumors she's dating Nas. When making an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Tuesday, May 23, the Young Money queen would not admit to dating the 43-year-old hip-hop artist, but she wouldn't deny it entirely, either.
"He's so dope," the "No Frauds" rapper gushed. "He's a king, he's such a king. ... Shout out to Queens, New York. I have to say that. We're both from Queens. And he is the king of Queens, and I'd like to think I'm the queen of Queens."
When Ellen DeGeneres asked her if they're an item, Nicki coyly responded, "He's a rap legend, so let's just say that I have a lot of respect for him." The 34-year-old raptress later said that her rumored beau's actually "kind of cute, too."
Ellen pushed further and asked if Nicki's had "sleepovers" with the "Illmatic" rapper yet. "We have," the "No Frauds" raptress responded with a laugh. She told the 59-year-old host, "I go to him. I just thought him coming to me was too forward."
But Nicki was quick to set the record straight when Ellen pressed her for details on "doing the nasty." "I'm just chillin' right now. I'm celibate," revealed the Grammy-nominated artist. "I wanted to go a year without dating any man. I hate men," she added. "I might make an exception to the rule for him 'cause he's so dope."
Nicki and Nas fueled rumors they're dating earlier this month when she shared on Instagram an intimate photo of them getting cozy at restaurant Sweet Chick in L.A. The "Anaconda" hitmaker previously dated Meek Mill, while Nas was married to singer Kelis from 2005 to 2010.
