Nicki Minaj covers up her bare skin torso on the cover of Billboard magazine’s latest issue!

Here’s what the 33-year-old rapper had to share:

On that huge ring that Meek Mill gave her: “Meek gave me that…He and I are not engaged. But he said he would like to give me three rings before we get married.”

On Hillary Clinton: “I support her as a woman. Am I convinced that she should be the next president? I still want to be open-minded about everyone. Obviously, I identify with her struggles as a woman…”

On Donald Trump: “There are points he has made that may not have been so horrible if his approach wasn’t so childish. But in terms of entertainment — I think he’s hilarious. I wish they could just film him running for president. That’s the ultimate reality show.”
