Nicki Minaj is a pretty open book about her life and love too. So during her recent sit down on Ellen, she held nothing back. 

Asked whether things have gotten serious between her and rumored boo Nas, the rapper admitted that after her break up with boyfriend Meek Mill in January, she made the choice to remain celibate. 

"I'm chillin' right now," she said. "I'm celibate. I wanted to go a year without dating any man. I hate men," she added, jokingly. But like the rest of us, Nicki knows Nas is hard to resist. "I might make an exception to the rule, because he's so dope," she added. "He is a rap legend. I have a lot of respect for him. And he's cute too." Touché!

Nicki joins Meagan Good and her husband DeVon Franklin, Ciara and Russell Wilson and host of other famous stars who swore off sex for a period of time. Mario, LisaRaye, Jill Scott and Lenny Kravitz have also gone public with their decisions to abstain from sex. Ciara has said being celibate while courting Russell Wilson gave them both a chance to really get to know each other. “It's [celibacy] awesome,” she told Gayle King in 2016. “It's a great challenge. I can definitely say that. But it's awesome because we get to really challenge ourselves, get to know each other and really build a foundation.”

Would you ever consider celibacy?
