Nicki Minaj has been seen with Meek Mill a lot lately and there is some speculation that the rappers are dating. However, in a recent interview with Vogue, The Pinkprint rapper says she is single. She expresses surprise at people’s reactions to her relationship with the MMG rapper.

“This is what I want to say about him: People think for some strange reason that we just started becoming friends recently,” she says. “We’ve been friends for a very, very long time, and he’s been around for a lot of things that I’ve gone through.”

Meek Mill appeared on two tracks on The Pinkprint.

Minaj also addresses the consequences of her hard work. She says she is planning on taking time for herself before she begins The Pinkprint Tour in March.

“I did get exhausted last year,” she says. “I promised myself that when I put out Pinkprint, I would take some time to live my life and not care what other people said about me. I find that people feel like they know what I’ve gone through in the past two years, and they don’t. I’ve seen so much judgment. If people knew what I’ve really gone through, they’d think I was Mother Teresa. I’ve taken so much shit, so much betrayal, and I still remain classy about it.”
