Young Money’s own Nicki Minaj took to the E! Channel last night to make her appearance on Chelsea Handler’s show, Chelsea Lately. The two ladies discussed Nicki’s multiple personalities, her debut album Pink Friday, relationships, her rear end and much more. Check out the interview and what we learned:

On wearing Spanx (or not?) to cover her ass
Chelsea: “What’s up with your ass?… Do you put something around it to minimize it… like Spanx?
Nicki Minaj: “Yeah… Actually, I do. I do that.”

On double standards for women in the business
“The way I interact with my fans is very… cutesie. People expect me to be like that in business but I can’t be like that in business because people wouldn’t respect me.”

On who dominates in relationships
“It’s very hard when you’re in a relationship becuase your natural instinct is to be bossy but you can’t really be like that with your boyfriend all the time. I like the boy to take control when we are [facial expression]… Let me be the boss in public.”

On being with a man who’s also a boss
“Him being a boss would turn me on but then at the end of the day we can’t really make it long term. It would be too many egos clashing.”
