Nicki Minaj briefly sparked dating rumors with Eminem last week, when she flatly told a fan who questioned if she and Shady are an item, "Yes." While follow-up posts seemed to prove that she was merely joking, her and Slim continue to egg fans on.

Em performed in Boston on Sunday night (May 27), and addressed the rumors. "Let me make sure, so I can actually make this official," he said to the crowd during a break in the action. "How many people in Boston want me to date Nicki Minaj?"

After some applause he replied, "Got damn it, me too."

He added, "Nicki, if you get this message, just text me later and we'll talk about it."

Barbie definitely got wind of what Em said. She posted a clip from Shady's show along with the response, "LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. The fact that he’s silly & a goof just like me. Love him so much," she posted. "Em we need you on the #Queen album. That’s where our 1st date will be; at the studio while I gaze into ur beautiful eyes as u write ur verse."

The two spittas previously worked together on the song, "Roman's Revenge," off Minaj's debut album Pink Friday.

Nicki's new Queen album was originally set to drop in June, but has since been moved back to a August 10 release date. So there is time to get Em on a track. According to Nicki, fans should be getting three different surprises between June 11 and June 15, with one being the album artwork.
