Nicki Minaj surprised her fans when she went on the Ellen Degeneres Show and joked about keeping her personal life with Philly rapper Meek Mill private.
“I don’t even want to say I’m in a relationship anymore,” the 33-year-old rap mogul told host Ellen Degeneres.
“I used to say I wasn’t in a relationship even though I was in a 12-year relationship and now, I feel like going back to that and saying I’m single… For instance, Valentine’s Day passed and I didn’t put up my Valentine’s Day gift on Instagram. People said, ‘They’re not together.’ We were getting anonymous messages saying, ‘She wasn’t with him. She was crying all day.’ They put up all these things. Meanwhile, we were really in bed all day on Valentine’s Day.”
"You can’t impress people,” Minaj continued. “You just have to do you and make yourself happy and forget about trying to get everyone’s approval. It’s better to just keep those things sacred. So now, I don’t really care to say I’m in a relationship or I’m engaged or whatever. There’s a boy that likes me. That’s all."
The boy -- Meek Mill -- is currently on house arrest in Philadelphia. If Minaj wants to see her man she has to fly into Philly. That's no an easy task when she lives all the way on the west coast.
She probably didn't post her Valentine gift on Instagram because Fed Ex didn't deliver it on time.
