ARE THEY? Aren't they? When Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill hit the Camden stage on Thursday night (he as an opener, she as headliner), thousands of fans will be looking for clues about the couple's relationship status. Hip-hop's current queen and her Philly-son suitor have been the subject of breakup rumors following Mill's ill-advised Tweet-diss and ensuing failed diss track about Drake, who belongs to Minaj's label. A week ago, blogs reported that they'd split. But Friday in Detroit, Mill showed love onstage for his Nicki.

Homicide detectives have arrested a man in connection with the stabbings of two employees of the rapper Nicki Minaj, one of them fatal, outside an East Germantown bar last week. Pierce Boykin, 31, of the Stenton section, was charged with attempted murder in connection with a stabbing outside the Che Bar & Grill that left a 27-year-old man whom police have declined to identify in critical condition. Boykin was not charged in the slaying of Minaj's tour manager, De'Von Pickett, 29, of New York City, who died shortly after the altercation outside the bar. Details on his death remained unclear Tuesday.

The opening acts at Friday's Wired Fest, a five-hour concert at the Susquehanna Bank Center Center in Camden, were meant to set the stage for headliner Nicki Minaj. But the show, sponsored by Wired 96.5 (WRDW 96.5-FM,) was neither a cohesive selection of like-minded artists nor a purposefully eclectic conclave like the Roots Picnic, but an accidental hodgepodge of seven performers, including B.o.B., T-Pain, and Diggy Simmons, taken from the station's playlists. Ironically, it turned out to be a fitting introduction for Minaj, whose attempts to conquer every corner of the pop universe simultaneously has stretched her prodigious talents to the breaking point.

WHEN TATTLE was a kid, an over-the-top bar mitzvah party was one held at night - with steak. "Star Wars"-themed bar mitzvahs were a big deal. So were sports-themed. Sure, a boy was becoming a man, but he was still a boy. Now . . . Matt Murstein , the 13-year-old son of NYC rich guy Andrew Murstein , had his bar mitzvah party at Manhattan's swanky Pierre Hotel on Saturday night, and London's Daily Mail reports that the entertainment was . . . Nicki Minaj . Makes Tattle think that the snake in the Garden of Eden may have been an anaconda.

The Philly rapper, 28, is slated to perform at the Susquehanna Bank Center as part of Nicki Minaj's Pinkprint Tour. Or, as Canadian rapper Drake called it, "his girl's tour.

WHEN TATTLE leaves the Daily News or the Daily News leaves Tattle, we may set up shop as a professional denier. We'll sign up clients - celebrities will be the easiest, but politicians and athletes will be big - and then whenever something appears online from one crackpot source or another, we'll deny it. Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill split? Will happen some day, but for now we deny it. The Naval officer in Tennessee who fired his gun at the killer is being "charged" by "the Obama administration"?
