Nicki Minaj's "Queen Radio" returned to Beats 1 Radio on Friday, and the Queens rapper's return to the airwaves came with a few surprise announcements.

Fresh off the release of her new single "Megatron" and its accompanying music video, starring her beau Kenneth Petty, Minaj announced that wedding bells are in the future for her and Perry.

"We did get our marriage license," Minaj said. "I think I have what I was striving for, just happiness. It was so hard to get to a happy place. Now that I'm there, I don't want to compromise that for anyone or anything."



The two dated when Minaj was 16 and rekindled their relationship late last year. Perry has been criticized by fans for going to jail on two separate occasions, once in 1995 for attempted rape and then again in 2006 for first-degree manslaughter. When a fan questioned Minaj's decision to date Perry after his criminal record went public, she wrote, "He was 15, she was 16…in a relationship. But go awf, Internet. Y'all can't run my life. Y'all can't even run y' all own life. Thank you boo."

While Minaj hasn't announced a wedding date, she did mention that she's been planning the wedding.

Minaj's second surprise announcement came in the form of her recanting one of her "Cocksucker of The Day" awards from a previous episode. During a rant regarding Travis Scott's Billboard sales which resulted in her album Queen debuting at No. 2, Minaj called out Scott's manager Irving Azoff and gave him the title." The cock sucker of the day is Irving Azoff. And I'm gonna tell you why," she said. "Allegedly, he tried to put out a smear campaign against my tour, and contacted people in the media to spread negative things about my tour."



Now, all of that is in the past as Minaj announced that Azoff is her new manager. The news comes two months after Minaj parted ways with her longtime managers Gee Roberson and Cortez Bryant.

DJ Clue, Blac Chyna and Trina all made special guest appearances on the show as Minaj talked about an array of hot topics from her alleged blackball from the Grammys to why she pulled out of the tour with Chris Brown.

She told listeners that she ultimately pulled out of the tour because she wants to hold off on touring until her next album is done. "I'm not gonna have you waiting too long," she said about the forthcoming project. "I want to make things good and perfect." She also revealed that "Megatron" is not a single from the album, but it's own stand-alone song just in time for the summer.
