Nicki Minaj's Queen arrived as somewhat of a surprise last Friday. An early highlight of the 19-track album, marking Minaj's first in four years, is the Biggie-flipping "Barbie Dreams." In the track, Minaj hilariously flips Biggie's "Dreams' to include a series of playful jabs aimed at everyone from Drake to Lil Uzi Vert. Simply put, the song will likely go down as one of Minaj's greatest.
During her appearance on Stephen Colbert's particularly stacked episode of Late Show Monday night, Minaj ended up giving the host his own "Barbie Dreams" line. "I would say 'I might fuck Stephen after the show, he gon' come back to work with a magical glow . . . and then the ending says 'but when you see us please, motherfucker, don't stare, just address me as Queen Nicki Colbert,'" Minaj rapped when asked how such a mention might have gone.
Minaj then revealed that two people mentioned in the album version of the track have approached her about it. "Only one person so far got a little irritated but then I explained how much I love him and he understands now," Minaj said. "And then one person, he was just laughing. He was, like, texting me. It was kinda like a mix between cursing me out and laughing about it."
Minaj also discussed her theory that "genuine men like big butts," the Queen cover's "warfare goddess" inspiration, and more. Catch the full Minaj x Late Show event via the video up top.
