“We’re Brother And Sister”: Nicki Minaj Finally Addresses DJ Khaled Proposal, Says It Was Publicity Stunt
As I initially thought, DJ Khaled is out here proposing to folks for attention ya’ll, or at least, that’s what Nicki Minaj claims.
Despite Khaled’s appearance on DJ Felli Fel’s radio show on Power 106 over the weekend, where he stood by his proposal and again claimed that he liked and kind of loved Nicki Minaj (he was never really sure), she called in to Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex to say that she doesn’t take it seriously because that man has been pulling a prank on folks since day one. Why? Not only to promote his album Suffering From Success coming out in September, but to also get some hype around his song with Minaj, Rick Ross and Future called “I Wanna Be With You.” Now we all see why she took so long to respond to his proposal, she was waiting for the song to drop. Womp:
“I was shocked just like the rest of the world and I was cracking up laughing with the rest of the world ’cause Khaled is a master at what he does,” she told Flex last night. She says that he pushed the proposal to kind of match the feel of the song that she’s featured on. “It was just another way for him to kinda give the world a glimpse on the feeling of this record.”
But she maintains that from the very beginning, those close to her knew it was a joke, and no, she has zero interest in Khaled romantically, and he feels the same way…according to her at least.
“Nobody in my real life took it seriously. Everybody just hit me like, ‘LOL. Yo, Khaled is crazy.
Khaled is my brother and Khaled was not serious with that damn proposal, ya’ll. Please let it go. He was kidding. He’s not attracted to me, he doesn’t like me. We’re brother and sister.”
Khaled took to Twitter after the song premiered on Funkmaster Flex’s show to say, “Salute @NICKIMINAJ!!! … Bringing the excitement back to the game!” That doesn’t confirm that he does or doesn’t like her, but I think it’s safe to say we won’t have to care about what he’s doing anymore since their publicity stunt is over. And all of that for a song with a repetitive dull chorus by Future (“I wanna be wit yoooou!”) and altogether a truly forgettable track. They could have kept that…
