Nicki Minaj on Taylor Swift: ‘She’s Like a Bowl of Ice Cream!’
Ask anyone who's ever met her and they'll tell you, Taylor Swift is sweet. So sweet, in fact, that one of the world's hottest rap stars is crediting a lot of her own success to the generous country cutie.
Nicki Minaj is currently sitting in the Top 10 of Billboard's pop charts with her huge hit, 'Super Bass.' The eccentric artist describes the song as about "taking a playful approach" to pursuing a crush. So it's no surprise, Taylor is a big fan. "Driving back from rehearsals listening to Super Bass by @nickiminaj OVER and OVER. I'm so obsessed with this song!" she once tweeted. The country superstar has also gushed about her love for the track in interviews and even invited Nicki to sing it with her on stage at a sold-out show in Los Angeles. [Watch their performance below.]
"I want to publicly say again that Taylor Swift really launched that single into another stratosphere, with just tweeting about it and rapping it and stuff," Nicki tells Billboard. "I performed it with Taylor, and she's so cute -- she's like a big bowl of ice cream!"
'Super Bass' is from Nicki's latest album, 'Pink Friday.' Taylor is already writing for her own fourth studio album, but in the meantime is celebrating the upcoming release of her 'Speak Now World Tour Live' CD and DVD set. The collection is set for release on Nov. 21, one day before the final show of the trek's U.S. leg -- a sold-out concert at New York's Madison Square Garden.
