The Nicki Minaj bit of Justin Bieber’s recent single ‘Beauty And A Beat’ will be amended at live shows, sources have somewhat predictably claimed, so to remove the mention of “Selena”, now that the Biebster has seemingly ended his relationship with acting popstress Selena Gomez.
The Minaj rap in the Beiber hit includes the line “Justin… Bieber, you know Imma hit em with the ether buns out, weiner, but I gotta keep an eye out for Selena”, but, a secret insider source monkey tells The Sun: “It’s too late for Justin to remove the lyric from his album, but there’s no way he’s going to be singing it or have anyone else sing it – including Nicki – at his concerts. He knows it would just rub salt in the wounds for Selena and there would be a huge backlash from his girl fans, so it’s easier forgotten”.
Ah, and after Minaj went to all that effort to rhyme “wiener” with “Selena”. We can only hope that Bieber now hooks up with someone with a homophonic name to his ex. Possibles: Christina Aguilera, Marina Diamandis, erm, Regina Spektor? Oh, I know, Celina Dion. She’d have to change her name slightly, but I’m sure Dion would be up for that if it rescued a rhyme.
