She's single for the first time since she was 15. But Nicki Minaj is perfectly OK with that.
The 35-year-old Queen rapper talked to Ellen DeGeneres about her solo status in a promo clip for the season 16 premiere of the talk show, due to air on Tuesday.
'I used to feel like I have to have a man,' she confessed. 'And I want every woman here to know, you absolutely don’t.'
Va-va-voom: Nicki donned an orange wig, a split-to-the-thigh suede mini-skirt, over-the-knee boots and a tight rollneck sweater for the Season 16 premiere of the Ellen DeGeneres Show
But that didn't stop the 60-year-old TV host pressing the hitmaker on her love life.
She asked Nicki all about her past relationships and her 'new boy' without offering a name.
Nicki revealed that the 'new boy' may in fact be long gone by now, replaced by a 'newer boy.'
'But I don’t have a boy,' she quickly added. 'This is the first time that I’m single, and I’m happier, I’m more free.'
