Nicki Minaj Shows Her Strength In New MTV Doc

"No one can prepare you for this business," Nicki Minaj says in the trailer for her new MTV documentary, My Time Again. "Unless you are in it, you really can't wrap your brain around it."
Minaj will attempt to make sense of this world for her fans come Sunday, January 18. Like 2010's MTV documentary My Time Now, Minaj is bringing audiences behind the scenes and into her familial and personal life. Based on the trailer, she's not holding back either. (For one thing, there's a shot of her backup dancer's bloody arm after a snake bit it before the VMAs.)
My Time Again follows the release of The Pinkprint — Minaj's most personal album to date. It also is a continuation of her championship for authenticity in the hip-hop/rap scene. "Women MUST aspire for more," she tweeted back in July, clarifying her acceptance speech at the BET Awards. "My desire [is] to motivate women to write. Our voices have to be heard. I hope I inspire up & coming females to do that."
My Time Again premieres Sunday, January 18 at 10 p.m. EST on MTV.
