Nicki Minaj and John Mayer Are Flirting on Twitter and My Brain Is So Confused

Especially because of what he once said about dating black women?

Nicki Minaj and John Mayer are flirting on Twitter and I don't know how to feel.

First, John tweeted about how he's always wondering what Nicki Minaj thinks of him, and then Nicki, in a power move fit for a queen, threw his own words back at him.

Ugh, why is she THE BEST?

Of course, John couldn't handle it because she's way too great for him:

Now, let's take a moment to remember the moment John Mayer said his dick was racist (opens in new tab).

When he was asked, "Do black women throw themselves at you?" he replied:"I don't think I open myself to it. My dick is sort of like a white supremacist. I've got a Benetton heart and a fuckin' David Duke cock. I'm going to start dating separately from my dick…I always thought Holly Robinson Peete was gorgeous. Every white dude loved Hilary from the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. And Kerry Washington. She's super hot and she's also white-girl crazy. Kerry Washington would break your heart like a white girl. Just all of a sudden she'd be like, 'Yeah, I sucked his dick. Whatever.'"

BRB, puking forever until all my organs are gone and I'm dead.

Also, I kinda want Nicki to go on a date with him and just DESTROY him, you know? I know that's not her battle, but she would slay.
