Nicki Minaj Explains Why She Pushed Her Album Back


At least according to rapper Nicki Minaj, who said she's dating the Detroit rapper in an Instagram post she shared early Friday morning. In her verse, Minaj raps, "Uh oh / Back again / Back to back Maybach, stack the M's / Told 'em I met Slim Shady, bag the M / Once he go black, he'll be back again".

Nicki Minaj confirmed the rumors that she's dating Eminem after being boldly asked by a follower on Instagram.

Page Six has reached out to reps for both artists for comment.

Eminem is mentioned in a verse from Big Bank.

The left-field couple have known each other since at least 2010, when they teamed for Minaj's track, "Roman's Revenge", but their romance comes as a surprise to many.

It's not entirely clear whether Minaj and Eminem are actually dating, or if her response was a joke.

"@eminem babe I thought we were gonna keep it on the low til the wedding", she wrote.

Ellen, for her part, made the most of Minaj's failure to appear because, in lieu of having the rapper on her show, she showcased the video for "Chun-Li" with her own head transposed on Minaj's twerking body. I can't give y'all half-a** s***, I just refuse to'. "I also want to do some things where I invite some of my actual fans to the studio and listen to the album and listen to the songs". TMZ reported the two had started dating last June but the relationship ended in December.
