The Word: Video: DJ Khaled proposes to Nicki Minaj
Lots of guys put videos of their quirky, unique proposals on YouTube these days. Nothing weird about that. Of course, most of those guys include the woman they’re proposing to in those videos.
DJ Khaled went a different route in this video he made with MTV, in which he asks Nicki Minaj to marry him. Khaled says he would have asked her face to face, but “I understand that you’re busy.”
The rapper says he and his prospective bride have a lot in common. “We both got the same symptoms. We both suffer from success,” he says.
Khaled says repeatedly that he’s serious, and if this is a joke he doesn’t telegraph it. The giant diamond ring he pulls out looks serious as a heart attack. But here’s one clue there’s more going on: “Suffering From Success” is the name of his next album.
Mariah Carey will not be returning to “American Idol” next season as a judge, she announced. Not to be outdone, her co-star (and occasional sparring partner) Nicki Minaj also announced her exit a few hours later.
Mariah and Nicki had some personality clashes early in the show, but seemed to get along better by the end — probably to the consternation of “Idol” producers, since the show has always seemed to benefit from a bit of friction between judges.
