Apparently, nobody knows nothing about what’s going on between Nicki Minaj and her longtime-maybe-split-up-now boyfriend, Safaree Samuels. But if Minaj is indeed singing about her own life in a newly released song, things look even worse than the rumors would have you believe.

Bossip on Monday pointed to Nicki Minaj’s performance as she hosted the 2014 MTV EMAs in Glasgow, Scotland on Sunday. In addition to hosting the show, Minaj rocked a sold-out crowd for the award show, performing her latest hit, “Super Bass.”

The rumor mill churned up in earnest, though, when Minaj slowed things down to debut a Skylar Grey-assisted track, “Bed of Lies.”

What’s so scandalous about the track? Well, here’s a snippet of the (edited, of course) lyrics:

Blockquote open

You could never make eye contact

Everything you got was based off of my contacts

You a fraud, but I’mma remain icon-stat

Balenciaga’s on my boots with the python strap

You was caught up in the rush, and you was caught up in the thrill of it

You was with me way before I hit a quarter mil’ in it

Put you in the crib and you ain’t never pay a bill in it

I was killin’ it, man you got me poppin’ pills in it

I told Baby hit you, I said this dude buggin’

Cause I was doing it for us, I told em f*** the public

Couldn’t believe that I was home alone contemplating

Overdosin’, all the postin’, no more toastin’ over oceans

They say you don’t know what you got ’til it’s gone

They say that your darkest hour comes before your dawn

But there was something I should’ve asked all along

Well, okay then. Of course, this could be a case of internet gossip mongers confusing the artist with the art, but Nicki’s lyrics on “Bed of Lies” seem a bit personal. Her boyfriend Safaree Samuels was in fact with her way before she “hit a quarter mil'” in record sales, and as some have pointed out before, nobody really knows what Safaree does, aside from dating Nicki Minaj.

Add to that the rumors that their relationship has been more off-again than on-again of recent, and it’s starting to look like we’ve got a confessional track on our hands.

Of course, there’s no mention in the track of Nicki smashing up the Mercedes Benz she bought Safaree with a baseball bat, so she’s still got plausible deniability.

Then again, if the recent Beyonce-Jay Z “On The Run Tour” taught us anything, it’s that maybe it’s best not to assume that an artist is actually singing about their personal life when they’re on the stage.
