Nicki Minaj Gives Language Lessons + Talks About Kissing Madonna on ‘The Graham Norton Show’

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj is a character, and she came out in full force on the U.K.’s ‘The Graham Norton Show.’ We already know she talked about her Twitter hiatus, but the rest of the interview debuted in full — and it’s absolutely hilarious!


The Harajuku Barbie dished on her success in comparison with ‘Give Me All Your Luvin” singer Madonna. When host Norton asked if Madge sent Minaj flowers to congratulate her on knocking ‘MDNA’ off the No. 1 spot, Minaj giggled and said, “She emailed me and said some nice things.”

Another Madonna moment Minaj touched on? That kiss! Norton brought up that Minaj “made out” with Madonna, which the ‘Roman Reloaded’ rapper was quick to clarify. “I wouldn’t call that making out with her,” she said, shaking her head. “She kissed me!”

Minaj also revealed how she got started in rap. “I wanted to be an actress first,” she said, “so I went to school for acting. I always loved music because my mom would sing all the time, and then I thought singing was a little bit boring — let me just start rapping.” Now she does both! “People don’t realize I’ve been doing it for a very, very long time. I put out three mixtapes, and then kaboom! I was signed with Lil Wayne and now I’m releasing my second album.”

Minaj’s band was out of the country, but she did grace the audience with some lip syncing to a clip of her ‘Beez in the Trap‘ video, which featured accompaniment by the crowd, who recited every word. She explained the meaning of the song using a British accent. “It’s like, ‘I am always in the trap.’ ‘The trap,’ ladies and gentlemen, refers to anywhere you get your money.”

Watch the clip below for hysterical clips on Minaj’s meanings of ‘”tumble dry,” “strawberry shortcake,” “Balloon Boy” and “Waffle House,” as well as the ‘Starships’ rapper’s workout routine to maintain her killer curves!
