The rumors of Nicki Minaj getting her own reality show were only partially true. The YMCMB Barbie and current American Idol judge will be appearing in three reality specials on the E! Network starting in November, reports MTV News. The specials will reportedly include never before seen footage of the Queens rapper during her come up from street DVD artist to Pop star instead of a reality series many thought was in the works.

There have been other shows that took a glimpse at Minaj’s early grind, like MTV’s Nicki Minaj: My Time Now doc. Besides her AI gig, Minaj is also dropping a new fragrance called “Pink Friday.” The perfume’s bottle is fashioned in the shape of a wigged head. Minaj will also be re-releasing her sophomore album, Pink Friday: Roman’s Revenge, and the updated version will be reportedly called The Re-Up. Recently, an old Minaj track called “Letter To Lil Wayne” hit the Internets that features a pre-YMCMB Minaj lyrically expressing frustration at a then delay in being signed to Lil Tunechi’s label.

How times have changed.
