When I was on the first tour, I saw Nicki for the first time and literally fell in love. She had this snap-back hat on that said ‘Minaj.’ She used to wear that every single day. She was like a theater student and she was so cold at rapping. I remember one of the first nights that we were out in Miami and I went to Jerry’s Deli. I was like, ‘You want food, you hungry?,’ I sent her flowers, and she was like, ‘Yeah, I want some food.’ I was like, ‘I’m in, we gon’ eat food together.’ I came to her door and she took the food and shut the door in my face! I was just like, ‘Man, this is gonna be a long road for us.’ I’ve always really, actually, really had a crush on her, always really loved her.
