Young Money’s Nicki Minaj recently discussed her relationship with R&B star Rihanna just weeks after causing an uproar after the singer inappropriately touched her hind parts on live television.
In addition to speaking on Rihanna, Minaj also talked about artists she favors outside of the urban genre.
“We’re shooting the video with Rihanna for ‘Fly’ this weekend,” Minaj said in an interview last Friday. “We’re going to save the world in more ways than one with the video and that’s all I can say about that… I love Ri-Ri! I mean, when she’s not grabbing my a** [at the American Music Awards] she’s a sweet girl…I like everyone. I don’t listen to music based on genre. Like, I’ll hear a song and then I’ll live for that song for like months and I’ll be like, ‘Who the h*ll is that?’ I listen to Taylor Swift. I like Coldplay. I listen to gospel a lot. I listen to anything that’s just beautiful music.” (E! Online)
Last year, Minaj opened up about her relationship with Rihanna.
“She didn’t wind up using the things that I sent for that [Rated R] album at that time, but we wound up having a mutual respect for each other. So I knew eventually something would happen. And so now when she sees me she fondles me and stuff like that. She fondled me at the MTV Video Music Awards and the American Music Awards. I love her…Right now she’s the girl that everybody loves. I’m so proud to have worked with her. Let’s just say she’s the best fondler ever.” (RWD Magazine)
Over the weekend, Rihanna tweeted a photo she took while posing next to Minaj.
