Nicki Minaj reveals history of abusive relationships in clips from 'Queen' documentary
"I let one human being make me so low that I didn’t even remember who I was. I was scared to get in the studio," an emotional Minaj reveals in a clip from her forthcoming Apple Music documentary 'Queen'.
Nicki Minaj has shared two clips from her forthcoming Apple Music documentary, 'Queen'. The film was reportedly made during the recording process of Minaj's 2018 album of the same name. In anticipation of the release of the documentary film, Minaj shared the clips on her Instagram on Tuesday, which sees the 'Chun Li' singer discussing two abusive relationships from her past.
In the first clip, Minaj recalls trouble in her parent's marriage. "I remember when my mother would let my father be violent with her," she says in the clip. "And she always brings up this story, as a little girl I would stand in front of my mother and go like this," she says, spreading her arms out wide.
"Maybe some people would describe me as abrasive or bitchy or whatever, because I vowed from that age no man would ever abuse me, call me out my name, treat me like that, and all of a sudden that was my life," she added.
The second clip shows Minaj talk about an abusive relationship of her own, but she doesn't reveal the name of the person involved. “Who was I going to inspire when I had nothing in me to give?", she wonders out loud. "I let one human being make me so low that I didn’t even remember who I was. I was scared to get in the studio. I didn’t believe in myself.”
Eventually, she overcame her struggles and recorded the Queen album-cuts 'Coco Chanel' and 'Good Form' soon after, mostly due to a change of setting, Minaj admits.
“All of a sudden, in Miami, I started catching a vibe as soon as I went to Miami,” she adds. “As soon as I changed locations, I started catching a vibe, and then one day, I got the vibe it’s time to go to New York.”
No official announcement has been made about the release date of the forthcoming documentary, but Minaj assures fans that the documentary is "coming soon". How soon is soon? Guess we'll have to wait and watch.
