Sorry, Drake. Nicki Minaj confirmed she’s team Meek Mill. In a new interview, Nicki gushed over her boy, talking about how all she can think about ‘is seeing him again,’ and that she loves how he respects her as an artist and as a woman!
If there were any doubts that Nicki Minaj, 32, and Meek Mill, 28, were in love, these two put it to rest in a new interview! Meek raved about how Nicki was “a boss” and “pretty as f*ck,” while Nicki made it seem that nobody — including her past fling, Drake, 28, — excited her as much as Meek does!

Nicki and Meek opened up about their love while chatting with GQ magazine. During the interview, the “Anaconda” singer discussed what makes this new relationship the best one yet. “I was just touring Europe and he kept saying, ‘When are you coming home?, When are you coming home?’” said Nicki, who said that when she and Meek are “not physically together, it just heightens that excitement for me to see him, because that’s all I can think about is seeing him again.”
Hot! It’s safe to say that Nicki doesn’t feel that way about Drizzy anymore. Drake and Nicki may have once been hot for each other in the past, but she has clearly moved on. Shame Drizzy hasn’t — he sounded mad that Nicki has no time for him anymore, calling her “ungrateful” on his latest mixtape. Yikes!
It seems that Drake just wasn’t the right kind of man for Nicki. “People tell me all the time, it takes a special kind of man to be with a woman who has her own,” Nicki told GQ, “and it takes a special kind of man to not feel insecure by a woman who is doing her own thing. You know? So, one of the things that made me want to be with [Meek] is we spent so much time talking, and he always made me feel like he was ok with me being me. As an artist and just as a woman.”
Nicki admitted that it’s not easy for a guy to date her, but she “really respects” Meek for pursuing her. “In the beginning he thought we could be in a relationship and I kept telling him no, I don’t think he was ready,” she said, “but he has a very strong mind and he was very convincing and persuasive.”
“You like me,” Meek chimed in. “I didn’t have to persuade you.” Awww. Meek also said that what he liked about Nicki was that she was “doing [her] own thing,” and that he’s attracted to “girls that hustle. [Nicki’s] a boss. She’s pretty as f*ck. Bad as sh*t. Ambitious.” Right answers, Meek!
What do you think about Meek and Nicki’s comments about their relationship, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Nicki is meant to be with Meek or Drake?
