Dating rumors started to fly after she and Nas were photographed snuggling up during dinner at the New York location of Nas’ Sweet Chick restaurant.
During an appearance on The Ellen Show a few days later, host Ellen DeGeneres broached the topic as they were discussing Minaj’s exposed breast at a Paris fashion show.
“Does Nas like both of them the same as well?” DeGeneres asked.
“He’s so dope,” Minaj said. “He’s a king. Shout out to Queens, New York. I have to say that — we’re both from Queens and he is the king of Queens, and I’d like to think I’m the queen of Queens. So he’s a rap legend. Let’s just say that. I have a lot of respect for him and you know, he’s kind of cute too.”
For now, Nas is focused on his Sweet Chick restaurants and Minaj recently popped up on Migos’ Billboard Hot 100 hit “MotorSport” with Cardi B.
Perhaps this will give both of them the time to work on their new albums.
