Nicki Minaj Gets Proposed to by DJ Khaled in Bizarre Video
Apparently rapper and radio host DJ Khaled is so in love with Nicki Minaj that he couldn’t be bothered to ask her on a date. Instead, he skipped straight to a marriage proposal, popping the question on MTV News in an awkward 100 second-long video.
Khaled sweetened the deal by presenting the rapper and former American Idol host with a giant diamond. The rock is a $500,000, 10-karat, radiant-cut ring, according to an E! Online report.
“Nicki Minaj. I’m at MTV. I’m gonna be honest with you. I like you. I love you. I want you. I want you to be mine,” he said in the video proposal. “I’m here at MTV because it’s a worldwide network. The only reason I am not telling you this face to face is because I understand that you’re busy. I’m gonna be honest with you; I want to marry you.“
The DJ goes on to explain why the two would make a great couple.
“We got the same symptoms; we both suffer from success,” he said. “You out there touring, you out there hustling, you out there making music, you out there winning. I understand. That’s why I feel like you need a man like me in your life.”
Some viewers thought the proposal was a prank or a publicity stunt, but Khaled told US Magazine on Friday that it was no joke.
“I want to marry her! I was serious,” he said. “She can take her time and think about it. At least she knows how I feel now.”
Minaj is taking her time responding to the video; she has yet to publicly comment on it.
Khaled and Minaj collaborated on Busta Rhymes’ “Twerk it” and are both signed to Lil’ Wayne’s Young Money record label.
