NIcki Minaj and Meek Mill

We’ll admit it, we thought Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill‘s relationship would be just be a faint memory and material for her next album by now (especially after his Twitter fingers fiasco with Nicki’s label mate Drake). We’re not haters, we just thought it was a publicity stunt. But the celeb couple are proving us wrong as the withstand the test of time and flaunt their love in the latest issue of GQ.

“My favorite thing about Meek is kissing him,” Nicki says. “I love the way his lips feel.” She added, “We’re just like any other couple in the hood.”

While #Omeeka have millions of fans (just search the hashtag), there was one very important person in Nicki’s life who was unsure about their connection.

“The only person was my mother,” she reveals. “My mother only knows Meek from what she sees in public, in the media. She’s met him now, but she just wants to make sure he’s a nice guy. She’s overprotective of her daughter. Another thing people don’t realize is I’ve only had three boyfriends in my whole life. I’ve never dated around… I don’t have a whole lot of experience in that department so my mother and my family were very like what? This is a big step, because they’ve only known one thing for over a decade. Even my pastor, who’s like a second mother, was scared. Everybody was just scared. Those women were scared for me because when I love someone I really let them in, and I really let me guard down, and I think it’s only natural for a mother to just you know, she just wanted to make sure I wasn’t rushing into anything.”

Nicki and Meek are learning more about each other as they continue to navigate the industry as a couple.

“You know we were just figuring each other out,” Nicki says. “We liked each other. We were into each other. Once we learned how to understand each other, it was curtain closed. Everything was a go.”
