Starting things off, Ellen asks about the eye-popping diamond ring Meek gave Nicki in December, mistakingly calling it an engagement ring.
“First of all, that’s not an engagement ring,”
Nicki said in response.
“I have two rings from this boy who likes me.
He said that that’s my second ring and if I get a third ring that that would be the engagement ring.”
When Ellen asks if she’s ready for that third ring, Nicki remains tentative. “I don’t know,” she said.
“We’re still figuring each other out.
In fact, I don’t even want to say I’m in a relationship anymore cause I think when people hear that, they go to a mean place.
I used to say I’m not in a relationship even though I was in a 12-year relationship.
Then now, [I’m] just going back to that and saying I’m single.”
Nicki then gives an example of how, on Valentine’s Day, many speculated that she and Meek had broken up because she hadn’t posted her gifts from him to Instagram.
The truth was though, that they had spent the whole day together.
“It just made me realize, no matter how great your life is, you can’t even impress people. You just have to do you and make yourself happy,”
“And forget trying to get everyone’s approval.
It’s better to just keep those things sacred. So now, I don’t really care to say I’m in a relationship.
There’s a boy that likes me, that’s all.”
“He and I are just two souls right now passing through the universe and I don’t know what’s going to happen and I have learned over the years to just let things be and come and go.”
