Nicki Minaj Is A Red Coat

Get it? Red coats, like the British soldiers wore during the American revolutionary war? Anyway … Nicki Minaj was in London on Monday (January 24), continuing her press tour across the pond.

The Young Money queen visited BBC 1XTRA’s DJ Semtex and talked her British, Scottish and Irish fans through a listening of her album. Her playback even included “Raining Men,” which the rappper recorded with pop star buddy Rihanna.

“I just wanted to be crazy, I wrote that track in bed actually. I had an off day, they sent me a record and said they needed it back in 24 hours and I wrote … saying craziness,” she said of the cut’s creation. “I wanted to make it more melodic and crazy.

Minaj also explained who she was making fun of on the last line of her featured lyrics on the song.

“On the last line of ‘Raining Men’ I say ‘It’s raining men, fat bitches’ ” she continued, with a giggle. “I just said it and I couldn’t take it back … Then when I was at Yankee Stadium, I ran into [Island Def Jam Music Group Chairman] L.A. Reid and he repeated that line back to me. And I was like ‘Did L.A. Reid just say ‘fat bitches?’ I wanted to pass out.”

Rihanna and Nicki recently wrapped the clip for the pair’s duet “Fly” on Barbie’s Pink Friday.

“We’re shooting the video with Rihanna for ‘Fly,’ ” Nicki told E! News recently. “We’re going to save the world in more ways than one with the video, and that’s all I can say about that. … I love Ri Ri! I mean, when she’s not grabbing my ass, she’s a sweet girl.”
