Congratulations to Nicki Minaj, who’s engaged to fellow hip-hop artist Meek Mill. E! News confirmed the news, which was kinda sorta announced by Nicki herself via Instagram by sharing a photo of her ring. The source explained:
“It may seem like it all is happening very quickly but Nicki and Meek are in this 100. They truly love each other.”
It’s not totally clear how long the two have been together, although it doesn’t seem to be longer than several months. Romance rumors started late last year, but Nicki denied they were dating. Then in February she seemed to confirm they were dating when she shared a photo of him kissing her cheek. They’ve since been spotted on dates.
But back to the ring. Here’s the photo Nicki posted last night, complete with nail art.
Morgan Shara of MASbisjoux jewelry told E! that the ring “looks like a 15-carat fancy yellow heart modified brilliant cut diamond mounted in platinum with a double halo of white pavé diamonds.” That’s all gibberish to me. All I’m thinking about is the $500,000 price and how many cars and/or houses and/or burritos that could buy.
I’m also thinking about the ring’s similarity to a certain other engaged pop star’s ring. Anyone remember Lady Gaga’s engagement ring from Taylor Kinney? The heart-shaped one with “T hearts S” on the band? Sure, this one is yellow with diamonds around the border of the heart, but it’s not every day that you see a heart-shaped engagement ring, so I can’t help but compare the two.
Which one do I like more, you ask? I like them both the same amount, which is not at all. Diamond rings do absolute zilch for me, especially ones as gaudy as Nicki and Gaga’s. The fact that they cost as much as 50,000 or more burritos but look like something you could buy at Claire’s doesn’t help.
Also the fact that they’ll probably get divorced soon.
Congrats again from Debbie Downer, you two!
