Romance rumours abounded over the weekend that Nicki Minaj and Eminem might be a thing. Nicki teased her upcoming album, Queen, by posting a video of herself lip-syncing to her songs. One of those new tracks, “Big Bank” features a verse about her and Slim Shady, and Nicki even tweeted a fan that yes, they were dating. But the excitement was short-lived.
Turns out, it was simply a savvy PR move. One of her peeps dashed our dreams and denied the dating news to TMZ, which means we’ll just have to listen to “Roman’s Revenge” and get our fix of the two rappers there, right? Um, not so fast. It seems these two want to play with our emotions a little more.
Eminem addressed the relationship speculation during his performance at the Boston Calling Music Festival, and while he also confirms he and Nicki aren’t dating (yet???), he’s giving us hope that there’s a possibility that it could happen.

Oooh. Things just got interesting! Minaj was quick to reply, allowing less than 15 minutes before she chimed in, basically the equivalent of waiting by the phone.

First date in the studio as they gaze into one another’s eyes? Yes, please. Come on. How good would Nicki and Marshall be together? It’s undeniable. They’re hip hop royalty, she’s the female version of him, he’s the male version of her, what with their wacky alter egos, and together, they could be magic — making music or making … something else.
