Minaj shared that The Pinkprint album took a lot out of her emotionally, but for her follow-up project she’ll be in a happier state of mind. “I needed time to hear myself think again,” she said, adding, “because where I left off with The Pinkprint was a little bit emotionally unstable. Now, I want my happiness to be reflected in the new stuff.”

Joyous times just might be ahead of Minaj given a non-stop arrival of engagement rumors every other day. Minaj revealed that her third ring from her Philly beau, Meek Mill, will be the confirmation that everyone is waiting for. “We’re just taking it one step at a time,” she said. “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.”
