Nicki Minaj

In between visits to “The View” and “106 & Park,” Nicki Minaj sat down to dish with Tamar Braxton, Adrienne Bailon, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai, and Tamera Mowry-Housley on “The Real.” The Pinkprint rapper spoke about collaborating with Beyoncé on “Feeling Myself” and Ariana Grande on “Get On Your Knees.”

“Ari did her thing on ‘Beg for It,’” said Nicki. “It’s very, very sexy, hunny. Her inner freak been coming out lately.”

Tamar shared her love for the Dr. Luke and Cirkut-produced song, saying, “I’m a little ratchet rat right here and I love ['Get on Your Knees'].”

The ladies also praised her “SNL” spoofs of Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian. Nicki was confident about her Queen Bey impression, but wasn’t so sure about Kim. “I didn’t know if I could really nail Kim,” she said.

She also spoke about writing “Anaconda” for the curvy women. “I felt like back in the day, thicker women were celebrated in hip-hop and I kinda felt like there was a shift happening and I didn’t like the shift,” she said. “I felt like somebody needed to say something.”

Plus, she revealed that a song called “Dem Boyz” didn’t make the cut, but features her infamous alter ego, Roman. She plans to leak the track in the future.

Earlier in the week, Nicki reflected on her rise to superstardom during an in-depth conversation with Elliott Wilson for his CRWN series.

In between hosting “The Real” and taping her reality show “Tamar & Vince,” Tamar Braxton still finds time to slay the screen in the extravagant video for her new single “Let Me Know.” The R&B songstress shines in all her diva glory in the clip, which she directed. She switches up her look several times, from blonde to brunette, and even covers her naked body in glitter.

The Future-assisted song samples Aaliyah’s “At Your Best (You Are Love).” “I’m definitely a fan of Aaliyah,” Tamar said of the late singer. “She was one of my good friends because her uncle [Barry Hankerson] and my sister [Toni] were affiliated at the time, so I spent a lot of time with her.”

Tamar is currently in the studio finishing the follow-up to last year’s Love and War. The new season of “Tamar & Vince” premieres tonight at 10 p.m. on WE tv.
