Nicki Minaj fever swept across the U.K. all last week as the fashion-forward rap star undertook a dizzying press tour and media blitz, all while becoming the darling of the U.K. press.
On the last weekend of her visit across the pond, the charismatic rapper sat with BBC Radio 1’s Tim Westwood and quelled the ongoing rumors that she and her Young Money compatriot Drake are an item, although she flirted with the idea, if only briefly.
“I think [our children will] definitely have my personality. My mother-in-law will be super beautiful, so that’s good ’cause Drake’s mom is freaking amazing. I love her,” Minaj said. “They’ll have Drake’s intelligence, they’ll have his sarcastic wittiness that I love about him, and they’ll have his songwriting skills.”
“I think we’ll just make a real creative bunch of kids.”
However, Nicki quickly dispelled the rumor, one that both artists have previously denied. “Wait, did I just say that me and Drake will make kids? I think that would be like incest or something,” she added.
The Young Money diva made U.K. headlines in more controversial ways. With an ever-growing mob of fans following her every move, the throng of “Barbz” – her nickname for her followers – proved to be too much for the swanky Dorchester Hotel where Nicki was staying. The hotel’s management asked the rapper and her entourage to leave the premises.
Shortly after her interview with Westwood, the popular artist was given a tour by the radio host. During the evening sightseeing tour, Nicki received a slight slap on the wrist from Buckingham Palace police for snapping prohibited photos of London’s famed landmark Big Ben.
