Stephen Colbert was ready to risk it all after Nicki Minaj dropped a quick freestyle about him.
The “Chun-Li” rapper stopped by The Late Show on Monday, August 13, to promote her new album, Queen, reports ABC News.
Colbert brought up the men she mentioned on “Barbie Dreams” and joked about not being included in the list of men she wouldn’t smash.
"It’s pretty comprehensive. It’s a pretty comprehensive list, and I’m just curious, if I were to make the list, how might you inform me?" Colbert asked.
Even though he put her on the spot, Minaj didn’t miss a beat and dropped a verse that left Colbert speechless.
“I might [bleep] Stephen after the show/He gon’ come back to work with a magical glow,” she spit.
As Colbert blushed and the crowd roared with laughter, Onika continued.
“But when you see us [bleep] please don’t stare/Just address me as Queen Nicki Colbert.”
Colbert tried to regain his composure and stammered when Minaj asked he if he was married.
“Why ... yes. Yes, I am married. ... Shoutout to you, darling. It’s all showbiz,” he replied, after stammering a bit. “Now you, uhh, uhh ... I don’t know where to go from here actually. I just don’t know what to do. I just don’t want to pass this moment. I just want to linger here for so long.”
We hope Colbert didn’t end up sleeping on the sofa.
After Colbert got himself together, the pair talked about the track and Minaj admitted she got a couple of calls about “Barbie Dreams” but wouldn’t name the callers.
She says one guy got aggy while the other laughed it off.
“I’m not gonna snitch on them. I’m not telling you. Only one person so far got a little irritated, but then I explained to him how much I love him, and he understands now,” she said.
“And the other person he was just laughing. ... He was texting me, and it was kind of like a mix of like cursing me out and laughing at it,” she added. “I just kept [responding] with crying face emoji, so that it could like make things not as bad.”
