MTV debut the new Nicki Minaj documentary Nicki Minaj My Time Again on Sunday night to rave reviews.
Of late the Young Money rapper have been opening up to her fans about her heart break and emotional turmoil over the last couple of months.
During her 60-minute documentary, Nicki Minaj opened up about her emotional journey of recording her third album The PinkPrint.
“I was really, really broken writing The Pinkprint,” a tearful Nicki Minaj said.
“The brokenness is OK as long as it can inspire people,” she added.
The clip started out with Nicki Minaj getting a call from her manager telling her they planned on releasing the “Anaconda” video at midnight.
She then took us behind the scenes of her rehearsal for last year’s MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs).

“There is a lot of pressure on this performance,” she said. “It’s my first time performing on the main stage of the VMAs, number one, and number two, every performance should be better than my last, that’s how I look at it.
“So that is why I am implementing things that I haven’t done before with this amount of dance,” she added.
During her VMAs rehearsals her now ex-boyfriend Safaree Samuels was there with her the whole time.
Nicki Minaj also took shots at rappers who are not putting in the work.
“Most people don’t rap no more,” she said. “Most people ain’t even tryna spit. Everybody is getting by being fraudulent. Everybody is getting by being half-assed. Everybody’s getting by not pushing their pen. Do you know how many times I think to myself, why did I just rewrite this verse, when everything on the radio is a bunch of wack verses.”
