Nicki Minaj and Stephen Colbert Cut Up During Her Appearance on The Late Show

Nicki Minaj appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to promote her newest LP Queen, and the entire segment was full of steamy, hilarious moments. Much like Tiffany Haddish’s appearance on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, Minaj and Colbert’s energy clicked.

Minaj and Colbert kicked off the segment chatting about Minaj’s “warfare goddess” inspired cover before discussing her explosive track that called out a lot of men in the Hip-Hop community, “Barbie Dreams.”

Colbert pointed out how the track listed reasons why the men, as the kids say, couldn’t get with her and that he noticed he didn’t make the list of men.

“It’s a pretty comprehensive list,” said Colbert. “And I’m just curious… If I were to make the list, how might you inform me?”

Her bar in response left Colbert blushing.

“I might fuck Stephen after the show/ He gone come back to work with a magical glow,” rapped Minaj. After Colbert regained his composure, Minaj continued, “But when you see us, please (expletive) don’t stare/ Just address me as Queen Nicki Colbert.”

Minaj left Colbert so shook she had to ask if he was married. Spoiler alert: He is.

Later in the segment, the duo discussed whether Donald Trump or Joe Biden liked big butts more. Minaj answered Biden.

“Anytime a white person gets the pass that they can be invited to the cookout, that means they probably like big butts,” said Minaj.

After her response, Colbert asked Minaj if she could recognize a “big, juicy butt,” and she said yes prompting him to show her a picture of Donald Trump. When Minaj’s face became unenthused, Colbert hilariously responded telling Minaj, “Girl give into it.”

They closed out Minaj’s appearance swapping roles momentarily. Colbert rapped some lines from Minaj and she read a joke about LeBron James and Trump that had previously been cut.
