Nicki Minaj doesn't hear the sound of wedding bells ringing.
In the last year, the "Truffle Butter" rapper often sparked engagement rumors by wearing two different (but equally dazzling) diamond rings on that finger. Meek Mill has denied popping the question, telling Fader last year, "It ain't really time to get married yet. We're still learning each other, feeling each other out." In NYLON's April issue, Minaj insists that they are not engaged—at least not yet. "He said that my third ring would be my engagement ring. But sometimes he calls me his fiancée, and I'm always trying to stop him, like, 'Nope! I ain't got that third ring yet!' We're just taking it one step at a time," she tells the magazine. "And, you know, if that happens, if I get married, then I'll have a child, and that'll be fun, because I can't wait to hold my baby."
Minaj, 33, is confident that Meek Mill, 28, is The One. "When he and I were just friends, he would always say, 'You remind me of my mother, and I like that because you're like a dude. You're tough like a guy and you talk like a dude.' So, I always got the sense that me being tough and bossy was a turn-on for him. And it's important for me to keep my voice. Being in a relationship shouldn't mean that you lose your voice," she says. "Being in a relationship should mean that you've met a secure-enough man to allow you, in a sense, to remain a queen."
