Nicki Minaj performed on “The Wendy Williams Show” recently and stuck around for a rare sit-down interview with Wendy. Minaj chatted about everything from her new album to telling a story of when her father burned down their family home, and even dished on her current love life.
Minaj commented: “I’m married to Benjamin Franklin – that’s all I care about.”
Nicki Minaj on love:
WW: Are you in love, I noticed that you’re wearing a ring?
NM: No, I’m not in love, Wendy! I’m in love with my music, I’m in love with Pink Friday, I’m married to Benjamin Franklin – that’s all I care about. You know what I mean?
WW: And at 26 years old, as far as I’m concerned that’s the correct answer. It should be all about our careers at this point.
NM: Thank you, and that’s what I tell my Barbie’s and my Ken Dolls – don’t chase these boys, go to school, go to college – don’t depend on anybody, don’t be having babies. Do your thing.
Nicki Minaj on her father burning down her family home:
WW: I was reading at one point that your father made an attempt to burn the house down.
NM: No, he DID burn the house down. It wasn’t an attempt, he did – and my mother was in the house. And she had to run out at the last minute, but she had a dream the night before that the house was going to burn down so she had me and my brother sleep at a friend’s house. And so at 3:00 in the morning, they were like – something is going on at your house … so we ran like four blocks and we just saw smoke.
