Nicki Minaj is explaining the video concept for “Right Thru Me”, her new single from her Pink Friday album.
According to Nicki, who was recently spotted wrapping up the video for “Check It Out” with Will.i.am, the video will tell a love story complete with relationship drama and intimacy to match.
She tells Entertainment Tonight,
“The concept of the video is boy-and-girl relationship drama, you know, all of the intimate stuff as well as the fighting as well as the self-reflecting type stuff…It’s basically just a love story told from the perspective of a very hard girl who doesn’t want to give in but she has to.”
She also adds that the song should be easy to relate to, considering that it’s about an authentic relationship, something everyone has experienced in their life.
“The song to me is very, very personal…I haven’t spoken about an authentic relationship since I’ve come out. … Not everybody is rich, not everyone likes jewelry, not everybody likes playing dress-up, but everyone has been in a relationship at some point in their lives, so when you hear a relationship song, it’s like, you react.”
Before wrapping up with ET, Nicki revealed her celebrity childhood crushes from Bruce Willis to Treach from Naughty By Nature.
