Ahead of her new album release later this summer, Nicki Minaj is making her presence known. She's released music videos for "Chun Li" and "Barbie Tingz," attended the Met Gala dressed like a devil (peep that reunion with Cardi B also), and has teased some big news following that canceled appearance on The Ellen Show due to "doctor's orders."
She has yet to reveal what exactly that big news was, except maybe actually she just did in a single, one word Instagram comment?! Nicki, say WHAT?!
Last night, Nicki posted a video of her rapping her verse on YG's new song, Big Bank. The song features rappers 2 Chainz, Big Sean, and Eminem, which is why we're gathered here today.
Minaj captioned her Instagram, "I met Slim Shady. Bagged a EM!!!," In the comments, she then replied to a fan who'd simply asked, "You dating Eminem???" with three Internet-roiling letters: "Yes." GASP!
The Internet is shooketh following this BIG news, and nobody quite knows what this all means. Is Minaj just referencing her verse on the song that goes like, "Told 'em I met Slim Shady, bag the Em. Once he go black, he'll be back again?" Or is she for real? She did allude to "[bagging] a white guy" in "Barbie Tingz," let's remember!
Minaj and Eminem previously worked together back in 2010 on Roman's Revenge, and she recently broke up with rapper Nas so she's a free agent and can do whatever she wants! (To be clear, Nicki Minaj can/should always do whatever she wants, thxvm.) We'll just have to wait and see if this relationship is legit or not. With Nicki, you can never be too sure.
