Just ahead of the scheduled premiere date this weekend, the E! network has released a trailer for Nicki Minaj’s upcoming reality special, Nicki Minaj: My Truth, and Mariah Carey received a quick, but noticeable, blow.
As promised, fans will get to see candid sides of Minaj.
During the video clip, Minaj is seen stressing out over being late for her first day as judge on American Idol—because she couldn’t find anything to wear, one of many real moments. “You’re going to see the no makeup, the crazy sweaty face in the studio, you know, the regular stuff. You’re going to see rehearsals for the tour. People always see the glamorous side of the tour when I’m all made up and done up and everything is already set in stone,” Minaj told Ryan Seacrest Wednesday (Oct. 31).
“You’re going to see the behind-the-scenes stuff…me saying how I really feel about the people who interview me and a good part of what I love about the special is that its showing the people around me, the people I love, the people I have to be with everyday and its showing us take on these new things that are going my way recently.”
Recorded over 21-days, the special also follows the YMCMB Barbie on touring overseas, but things don’t really get interesting until the very last scene of the trailer. Minaj, wearing a curly black wigs, makes mention of her reported rift with Mariah Carey. “Nobody gonna run me off that mother f-ckin’ show, play boy.”
Of course she doesn’t name Carey directly, but the multi-Grammy-winning songbird accused Minaj of threatening to kill her after video footage of an argument between the two popped up online. The 29-year-old laughed-off the allegations.
Nicki Minaj: My Truth airs Sunday (Nov. 4) at 10:30 p.m. EST.
