  • DJ Khaled is putting his heart on the line -- all in the name of Nicki Minaj! While at MTV News on Thursday, the 37-year-old recorded a special video message to the "Super Bass" singer, confessing his major crush on her.

    "Nicki Minaj, I'm at MTV, I'm going to be honest with you; I love you. I like you, I want you, I want you to be mine," he said in the video. "Only reason I'm not telling you this face to face is because I understand that you're busy."

    He continued, "I feel like you need a man like me in your life; we got the same symptoms, we're both suffering from success. [If] you gotta take your time and think about it, I understand, but I know I have to be here today to let you know how serious I am and how serious this is to me."

    The hip hop star finished the video with a very public, if not romantic, proposal: "Nicki Minaj, will you marry me?" he asked, flashing a reported $500,000 10-carat ring for the singer.

    While Minaj, 30, hasn't responded to the proposal yet, he told Us Weekly exclusively at a screening of "Magic City" for friend, rapper Rick Ross, on Friday, July 26, at Eventi Hotel in N.Y.C. that he was 100 percent serious in the video.

    "I want to marry her! I was serious," he told Us, adding that he hopes to hear from the former "American Idol" judge soon. "She can take her time and think about it. At least she knows how I feel now."

    Khaled's upcoming new album is due at the end of September.
