Nicki Minaj, appearing on Thursday's edition of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, defends having sometimes-filthy lyrics despite a young fan base.

"You know the good thing about my album is we always make it in a clean version -- I know your show doesn’t play curses!" she said. "They don’t have to worry about it … they watch you on Ellen, and they get the good version!”

Nicki's new album Pink drops Friday: Roman Reloaded is available now.

Said Ellen: "President Obama just came out in support of same sex marriage and I say, 'Wow -- wow.' There have been moments in history when someone has the courage to stand up for what they believe in, and that one action changes everything.

"It takes a brave man to take a stand like this -- especially in a election year -- so I say, Mr. president thank you very very very much!"
