Young Money’s Nicki Minaj finally opens up on her relationship to rap star Meek Mill in a new GQ Magazine interview.

Within her Q&A piece, Nicki gushed over Meek’s boyfriend qualities and admitted how much her mother worried about their initial dating.

“My favorite thing about Meek is kissing him,” Minaj revealed. “My mother only knows Meek from what she sees in public, in the media. She’s met him now, but she just wants to make sure he’s a nice guy. She’s overprotective of her daughter. Another thing people don’t realize is I’ve only had three boyfriends in my whole life. I’ve never dated around – I don’t have a whole lot of experience in that department so my mother and my family were very like what? This is a big step, because they’ve only known one thing for over a decade.” (GQ)
