Nicki Minaj Gossip
Nicki Minaj gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
After Drake took down Meek Mill a couple of weeks ago, people wondered whether or not Nicki Minaj would break up with him out of embarrassment. Didn’t happen. The other night at her show in Pittsburgh, she called him her “baby father”. Then, on Twitter, when someone congratulated her, this was the response. Full Story
Oh my God, Ben Affleck is so…basic.
The nanny is pretty much the MiniVan Majority’s worst nightmare – it’s either Angelina Jolie or the nanny.
So the poor decision making continues. Ben Affleck cannot help himself. More on this in today’s first post.
Last night I went to the Nicki Minaj concert in Toronto. Was a really, really good show. She’s sexy as f-ck. She’s SO cute. She’s playful. She has enormous stage presence. In person, that star power is undeniable. By the end of it, I was in love with her. And afraid of her. When she tells you she’ll beat your ass, believe it.

Nicki Minaj was on Good Morning America today. And she talked about what went down with Taylor Swift this week. As you know, Taylor publicly apologised yesterday on Twitter, one of the rare times she's found herself in the wrong and having to eat sh-t. Which she did. She ate it from the internet and she ate it from the media. Full Story
Right now, I love them all. I love that they can’t f-cking help themselves. For all their weak accusations about the media creating drama that’s not there, I love that they’re the ones creating it for themselves. As usual.
But what about the publicist? It used to be the publicist’s job. Before Facebook and Instagram and Twitter, there was a buffer between whatever it was that a celebrity wanted to say and whatever it was that they ended up saying. Read Full Intro

And for those of you who insist that Nicki was targeting Taylor, click here for Buzzfeed’s solid case in defence of Nicki, and how she was consistent with her original message before Taylor even jumped in.

Sudden divorces, cheating scandals, award shows, girl sh-t, boy sh-t…
It’s been an ideal week in gossip so far.
Yesterday I opened with the VMAs on Miley’s announcement that she’ll be hosting, wondering about a possible Miley-Taylor Swift situation at the event. Nicki Minaj stepped in instead. The winner in all of this, of course, is MTV. That show is now basically going to be 3 hours of closely monitoring camera cutaways and reaction shots. Read Full Intro

And she was rolling along so smoothly. Taylor Swift. Friend of Everyone. Protector of Artists against Apple. It was world domination. And then…a MAJOR stumble. So the MTV VMA nominations came down yesterday. As expected, the Bad Blood video led the way with 9 nominations. Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda, however, was only nominated for 2 awards, and not in the Video of the Year category. Full Story
Let me just tell you, again, how it was when I was growing up, OK? Old people do this. We have to mansplain to the new generation about the superiority of our world. Back then, a Madonna video and/or performance was a major event. It was tight. It was bold. It was always imitated. Over and over again it was imitated from basements to school gymnasiums to stages.

Julie Taylor is a student of Hogwarts. Last night I was texting Lainey about The Wizarding World of Harry Potter experience opening at Universal Studios Hollywood. I need a wand! It's going to cost a fortune in baggage fees! #wizardingworldofharrypotter #HogwartsExpress Full Story
Last month, Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill were exchanging messages on Instagram and posting pictures of a giant heart shaped ring suggesting that they’re engaged. Apparently they’re not engaged. The ring is legit. But it doesn’t mean marriage. Meek gave an interview to The Fader, with Nicki present during most of it, and clarified the situation: "(The ring is) definitely real. Full Story
Have you watched the Feeling Myself video yet? I can’t stop watching Beyonce and Nicki Minaj dedicate an entire video to celebrating themselves.
Isn’t every video a self-celebration? If you’re going to do it – and they ALL do it – you might as well do it with really, REALLY good hair and makeup, toned legs and asses, and some burgers. I change my mind about my favourite part every time I hit repeat but right now, I love it when they eat the burgers. And groove while they’re eating the burgers. And, yes, feeling themselves. Oh they feel themselves real hard.
It’s the rise of the huge female ego. Two at a time. And I am totally OK with this.
Quick programming note: I’m at Disneyland with The Social for the next few days as we’re coming live from the park this week. Have tried to prep the column before I have to leave for rehearsals and shoots and Sarah’s handling several posts while I’m on set. If anything breaks, I’ll try to write from my phone. Thanks in advance for understanding.

Jay Z took some time on the weekend to unleash #TidalFacts and he does make some salient points – at 700k subscribers in a month, it’s hardly a flop. But with the star power and hype behind it, what number would tip it to “successful”? The problem with an endeavor like this is that there’s no context. Full Story
Nicki Minaj was hinting on Twitter on Tuesday that she’d had a really great night. Then she hinted some more that maybe it had something to do with a ring. After that, on Instagram, she posted a text exchange between her and Meek Mill:
I’m not big on romance but OK, that brought out a giggle. Because it feels like Teen Love, doesn’t it? Look at that ring. This ring IS Teen Love!
I love Teen Love. Duana and I went back and forth on text celebrating Teen Love yesterday after she sent me the most beautiful article about Teen Love, or maybe it was an article about fingerbanging which, basically, is Teen Love. There are so many good lines but this is probably my favourite:
“Whenever a teen enters a new space they think: Could I fingerbang someone here?”
Anyway, Nicki Minaj is engaged. Teen Love is thriving.
