While on stage at the Boston Calling three-day music festival, the star asked the crowd if they’d like to see and the Queens native as an item.
“Yo Boston, how many people in here want me to date Nicki Minaj?” he said to the audience. “So wait, one more time: Let me make sure so I can actually make this official. How many people want me to date Nicki Minaj?”
In response to the crowd’s resounding cheers, Eminem answered “Well goddamnit, me too!”
