Nicki Minaj Visits ‘LIVE with Kelly and Michael’

Nicki Minaj kicked off her week with an early morning visit to “LIVE with Kelly and Michael” on Monday. Dressed “demurely” in a flowery Dolce&Gabbana dress and Versace shoes, the “Pills N Potions” rapper sat down with Kelly and Taye Diggs, who was filling in for Michael Strahan.

She discussed her love for West Indian food (“Everytime I come [to New York], I gain about five pounds”), her army of fans, and her new single.

“It’s been literally my most critically-acclaimed single that I’ve ever put out—ever,” said the leader of the Barbz.

She also shared her love for Taye Diggs. “I would love to have this sexy hunk of chocolate in my video,” gushed Nicki, who wants to play the actor’s love interest in a movie.

The “Pills N Potions” video will premiere around 8 p.m. EST today on VEVO.
