Nicki Minaj paid a visit to radio host Angie Martinez's show on Power 105 yesterday and gave one of her most personal interviews yet. The rapper, whose album The Pinkprint was released this week, opened up about a lot of topics during the lengthy interview including her love life and friendship with Beyoncé. While she remained vague about her rumored relationship with Meek Mill (who appears on the album twice), she compared him to DMX and said the rap game needs a rapper like him that represents the harder side of life. Nicki slyly put her labelmate Drake further into the friend zone by saying she definitely "doesn't want to kiss him in the mouth," too. Ouch.

Perhaps the most compelling part of the interview is when she opened up about her breakup with Safaree "SB" Samuels, which even caused her to break down in tears. The relationship is a major theme on Pinkprint and Nicki delved into the reasons that she keeps her private life under wraps saying "relationships aren't sacred" in the world we live in. The most heartbreaking quote is when she said that if she wasn’t a rapper, she would live "happily ever after" with Samuels, a rare moment of vulnerability from the acclaimed rapper.
