Nicki Minaj makes an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today, and the 29-year-old R&B starlet chats about wanting children and how she's not ultimately responsible for young fans hearing some of the explicit lyrics in her songs.

When asked about some of her raunchy rhymes (oh you know, like the one where she says, "Somebody point me to the best a** eater"), Nicki tells Ellen, "You know what, I don’t really think I have to deal with it.  I’m not their parents ... I can only give advice and you guys know I always give my young little lady bugs my most precious advice. Which is to stay a child, don’t rush to grow up.  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."

When asked about her finances, Nicki reveals that she's "still not like a big spender," but that she does like to splurge on her friends and family every now and then. "I love buying other people stuff," she says. "Because when I buy my self something I feel like, I don’t really need this.  You know, why am I getting it.  I just bought my best friends Ranger Rovers. They’re really excited about that."
