Nicki Minaj Freestyles About Stephen Colbert on ‘The Late Show’
Nicki Minaj stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Monday night (Aug. 13) to discuss her new album Queen, and things got steamy pretty quickly.
The television host asked Minaj about her much talked about song "Barbie Dreams" in which she name-drops countless hip-hop artists in some less than flattering ways.
"This one's getting a lot of attention for a lot of the famous men you call out," Colbert said. "You, in certain terms, describe reasons why these men would not be able to, as the kids say, get with you," he continued. In "Barbie Dreams," Nicki puts her own spin on The Notorious B.I.G.'s classic song "Just Playing (Dreams)" and calls out rappers like Meek Mill, Drake, Lil Uzi Vert and more.
Colbert goes on to call Nicki's attention to the fact that his name is suspiciously absent from the list—something Nicki is quick to rectify. After a momentary pause, Nicki bangs a makeshift beat on Colbert's desk and freestyles off the top.
"I might fuck Stephen after the show/He gone' come back to work with a magical glow," she began, to cheers from the audience and sending Colbert into hysterics.
"When you see us please [bleep] don't stare/Just address me as Queen Nicki Colbert," she continued.
Nicki goes on to ask a dumbfounded Colbert if he's married and proceeds to shout out his wife. She also told the veteran comedian that she has received some blowback from two of the artists she called out on the original version of "Barbie Dreams." Nicki said she simply responded by hitting the artists with laughing emojis, which seemed to quiet the upset rappers down.
Colbert went on to ask Nicki Minaj about her performance at the Time 100 Gala in 2016, during which she dedicated her performance of "Anaconda" to both Joe Biden and Donald Trump. At the time, she said, "I'm very political and I would like to dedicate a song in the spirit of unity to Joe Biden and Donald Trump. Who do you think likes the biggest butts? Donald Trump or Joe Biden? Trump?"
According to Minaj, she can only assume that Biden prefers big butts, because he's "invited to the cookout."
