Even after their short-lived Twitter marriage, Nicki Minaj and Drizzy Drake remain great friends. Drizzy was a surprise guest at the New Orleans stop of the Lil Wayne-headlined I Am Still Music Tour, and MTV News caught up with Young Money’s Bonnie & Clyde backstage.
Rather than tend to our questions, Drizzy and Nicki decided to interview each other. Drake started off slow with his questioning, asking Nicki about her “peak moment” onstage.
“You want to know what, Drizzy? I really love busting out from underneath the floor doing ‘Roman’s Revenge,’ ” Nicki told MTV News — er, Drake. “When I say, ‘I’ll kick that ho, punt!’ When I say, ‘Bitch, if you ain’t sh—in’ then get off the pot,’ we really connect.”
The “Best I Ever Had” rapper did his journalistic due diligence with his follow-up question, asking Nicki when we could expect new music, while adding that he thought it would be “really exciting.”
“Well, you know, Drizzy, I have been keeping everything sort of stored inside of me,” Nicki said. “So I’m just in complete tour mode. Yeah, I’ve been getting a lot of requests to do some features, but if I can’t give myself wholeheartedly, I always pass. I definitely never want to be just doing too many features that they start getting watered-down and I’m not giving my whole, true self.”
Nicki said she would focus on recording new material after she’s finished with Britney Spears’ upcoming Femme Fatale tour. One exception the “Moment 4 Life” MC will make to her limited recording is if any of her YMCMB crew come calling.
Drake then asked Nicki if she would be on his forthcoming sophomore album, Take Care, to which she playfully said she would pencil him in.
It was then Nicki’s turn as interviewer, and her first question for Drake was what it was like to be back with his Young Money family after touring the U.K. earlier this year. “I truly enjoy these moments,” Drake answered. “Especially being in New Orleans. Actually, New Orleans was the first place that I ever really realized that my music was getting out there. I remember walking outside the W [hotel], and there was a guy out there selling mixtapes and he had So Far Gone. I couldn’t believe it. I wasn’t even mad. You usually think you’ll be mad when there’s a bootlegger, but I was super excited.”
Nicki then asked Drake about the beard-and-curly-hair look he’s been rocking lately, and he revealed that it was for a film role. In January, it was reported that the former “Degrassi: The Next Generation” star was joining the cast of “Arbitrage,” which is set to star Susan Sarandon and Al Pacino. However, Drake relayed that he has “decided to work on my album instead of doing that particular film.”
Seems like Take Care may be arriving sooner than later.

In case you haven’t heard, click here to read how Drizzy Drake and Nicki Minaj tied the knot via twitter. This turned out to be just a joke, but check out what People magazine reported about Drizzy Drake‘s mother being mistaken about the situation:
Rapper Drake had the Web buzzing when he and his Young Money label-mate Nicki Minaj Tweeted last month that they suddenly got married.
“Please refer to @nickiminaj as Mrs. Aubrey Drake Graham and don’t stare at her too long,” the rapper Tweeted on Aug. 27. “She’s finally mine.”
“Yes, it’s true,” Minaj, 25, added via Twitter. “Drake and I tied the knot.”
But no one was more surprised to hear the supposed big news than the rapper’s mother.
“My mom was actually like, ‘What happened? How did you elope?’ ” the rapper, 23, told PEOPLE at the MTV Movie Awards Sunday. “But we were just joking around. I never thought it would get so out of hand.”
This wasn’t the first time that Mama Drake likely wondered about her son’s romantic life – last year, he was rumored to be dating Rihanna. And it didn’t help matters when Drake bought himself a certain piece of jewelry around the time of the wedding Tweets.
“Ironically, I got a ring for myself, so people were like, ‘Aw, you got married, and you have a ring you’re wearing,” he says.
Drake’s seemingly innocent joke also had some additional backlash beyond his worried mom.
“People still think it’s real,” he says. “I’ll look at a girl, and she’ll be like, ‘You’re a married man. You shouldn’t look at me that way.’ “
‘Drizzy Drake is just my little brother, and I kid with him all the time,’ Minaj says.
Nicki Minaj promises there were no "Drickis" born in the 24 hours she and Drake were "married." This past weekend, Nick called into Atlanta’s Hot 107.9 and spoke to DJ Drama about a myriad of topics, including her recent Twitter marriage to (and divorce from) her fellow Young Money rapper.
"Drake is just my little brother, and I kid with him all the time," said Nicki, who will be performing at this year’s VMA pre-show. "We were just being crazy. I think we were a little bit bored. There’s really never a dull moment. I wouldn’t say we were bored; I would say we were being mischievous.
"I was doing an interview, and every day, I see some things written about me that aren’t true," she added. "I wanted to give the blogs a bit of payback and put my own story out."
When asked if she were still single, Nicki coyly answered, "I’m always single. I don’t date boys. I don’t like boys. It’s true. I don’t change. I think boys are yucky, and that’s it. Nothing more to say."
When it comes to the kings of hip-hop, however, Minaj had plenty to say — especially when she’s on a track with them. Nicki recently appeared on the Kanye West/ Jay-Z collaboration "Monster," which also guest-stars Rick Ross and Bon Iver. Minaj has gained a swell of support from fans who say she has the song’s show-stealing verse.
"I’ve just been blessed to be on a song with two living legends. In my book, Jay and Kanye are icons, and I never in a billion years would have thought I would be on a song with one of them, let alone both of them," she said. "I’m happy people think I murdered the record. It just feels exciting to be a part of that collab. Seriously."
Nicki also revealed that she has moved to Los Angeles and is still hard at work on her debut LP, Pink Friday. That means no days off — even on Labor Day.
"I know a lot is riding on this album," she said. "I wanna make everybody proud. There are some people that are rooting for me out there. I wanna go in."
