DETROIT • Rap star Eminem needed advice on matters of the heart, so he asked the crowd at his concert last Sunday: "Boston, how many of you want me to date Nicki Minaj?"

After the audience roared its approval, he said: "Nicki, if you get this message, just text me later, we'll talk about it."

Recently, talk has swirled that the two rappers are in a relationship after Minaj said "yes" to a query from a fan, reported E! News.

The 35-year-old has a soft spot for rappers. She was in a high-profile relationship with Meek Mill before she revealed in January last year that they had split up.

She did not mope too long because, months later, she posted a photo of her with Nas on Instagram.

On Sunday, Minaj, after learning what Eminem had said in Boston, tweeted that he is "silly & a goof just like me".

She added that she needed a favour from him for her upcoming 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."
