Nicki Minaj has opened up about her recent, short-lived marriage to breakout star Drake and why she intentionally wanted to stir up the Internet rumor mill.
Speaking with radio host DJ Drama, Minaj said she never tied the knot with her YM labelmate.
“No, Drama, don’t be silly,” Minaj told Drama when asked about expecting kids with Drake. “Drake is just my little brother and I kid with him all the time. That’s all. Yes, yes, we were just being crazy and I think we were a little bit bored. I wouldn’t say we were bored, but we were being just mischievous. I did another interview and they asked me and I said, everyday I see things written about me that aren’t true. So I wanted to kinda give the blogs a little bit of payback and put my own story out. [laughs] I don’t date boys, I don’t like boys. [laughs] It’s true — I think boys are yucky and that’s it. There’s nothing more to say.” (Rap Radar)
Drake and Minaj initially hit up Twitter and exchanged marriage-based tweets.
“@nickiminaj Baby I am never scared. PROUD is more the word I would use.”
“Please refer to @nickiminaj as Mrs. Aubrey Drake Graham and dont stare at her too long. She’s finally mine. :)” (Drake’s Twitter)
Following the rumors, reps for both artists denied their marriage ever took place.
Reps for both Drake and Nicki Minaj tell E! News that the rappers did not tie the knot, though both tweeted that they did earlier today. While Drake said in his tune “Miss Me” that he fancied marrying the Trinidadian newcomer, the duo decided to team up instead for what appears to be a publicity stunt. (And we bet plenty of people have been looking up that song today.) (E! Online)
Last week, Minaj also touched up on the “marriage” and said they were no longer an item.
“Dear Barbz, My husband Drake and I have decided to have our marriage annulled. We’ll maintain joint custody. Luv, HB,” she tweeted Saturday (August 28).
“Barbz 1 day mommy will have to fall in love. Don’t b selfish :/ > RT @NickiDomination: @NICKIMINAJ nobody can have u HB ! U r priceless” (Nicki Minaj’s Twitter)
