[VIDEO] MTV Airs Nicki Minaj's Documentary "My Time Now"

 

Nicki Minaj was recently featured in an MTV documentary about her life and music called "My Time Now."   We have the full mini-movie for you inside in case you missed it (or in case your Barbie and Ken quota for the day hasn't been met).....

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

By the way, she sold about 400,000 units of Pink Friday her first week according to Billboard.  Now that you know about her struggles and her back story, does this change how you feel about her--good or bad?  I'll play nice today and keep my answer to myself...

Only time will tell with

Only time will tell with Nicki. I like the attitude she took in regard to the entertainment business and the discriminating ways the women are treated as opposted to me. It's like that in every sector of life. That is why women need to stop hating on each other, in everyway and band together. I love lil Kim, she gets my vote first, because she was first. Yet, imagine this if the fued between the two is making headlines, imagine what a collab - I mean a true business venture could do as women empowering movement. Kim, Nicki, Foxy, all women with a voice to reach the masses please get it together. It's the men who drive the wedge between us and love it from the hood to Hollywood.

You know I genuinely like

You know I genuinely like this chick. Her personality alone will get her far cuz it seems to me that for her to only be 26 years of age, she slightly got her shit together. She is a head strong women that knows what the f*** she wants and I have alot of respect for her and her craft. Screw all the haters cuz if she wasn't shit no one would say shit so...... do you Nicki and rule the F**king world girl!

you know i realize that

you know i realize that people cant be just happy for nobody, and i hate that. she had to put in alot of work to become who she is today its not a easy work. there is alot of you out there saying bad things about her, that wouldnt put up with half the stuff she had to. so how she got what she wanted, be happy for her. and not because she is a female she sleep around to make it happen. i know she put hard work into to this, like a man. because any other female can tell you its not easy for a female to make it. if you sleep around, the men in the industry will not respect you. and those men around her respect her, its hard work.

I COMPLETELY agree I have a

I COMPLETELY agree I have a new found respect for her and the additude she has toward the game and her life in general! She's Going to be the mogul that she wanted to be because the difference from a sucessful person and an unsuccessful person is that the successful person knows they are and never doubts when everyone else does.... They never for a minute! They just GO! And she's Going!!!

its cool 2 me that she done

its cool 2 me that she done this just so every1 can get that glimpse of her life & career. its obvious that people still not going 2 lik her for whatever reason. I mean really do people thnk dat she does those voices & personalities jus 4 the hell of it? i wud imagine the people above her tell her 2 do that. its what her fans lik & obviously its wat otha artists lik if they want her on their features. its about the money 4 happiness at the end of the day. 2 feel more then just lame i imagine & not 2 b stuck n 1 job, city or point n life. so if you dont love her do yu. if yu do then continue. .

She DOES do those voices for

She DOES do those voices for the hell of it, it's not because someone makes her. She has talked about that in other interviews. The girl is creative, quirky, silly and fun.... and it shows in her music.

That home she is buying looks like it is in the hood? so really what kind of borrowed paper is she really stacking? Better invest child for later instead of shopping at the malls.
Anonymous's picture

Really..you have all that

Really..you have all that going on and you still found time to hate on someone for doing something positive. It was not the money she spent or how large the house was idiot. It's love and compassion for the people we truly care about. And why the hell are you worried about what she is stacking? Does what she eat make you shit...? ask yourself that? 50 acres in the Hollywood hills..I don't think so..because I know of all the properties out there of that size..being in Real Estate and all.. and frankly 6700 sq.ft that's a little small for so much acreage...well not if it's the guest house. Don't worry we believe you and think your awesome too..LOL Grow up and let people live their life accordingly and you do the same in your big fancy house..

1st off there is nothing at

1st off there is nothing at all ghetto about Long Island so get ur facts straight and she got the hose for her mom pay attention stupid. I love the fact that she proves when coming 4rm nothing and starting to make something you still appreciate the smaller things in life for what they are and you spend within your means so when shit starts to get hard you still can mange life issues to come.And 2nd of all i understood her when she took her family shopping back home cause the point of it was to say yes now she can help her family and it feels good to buy something and not have 2 worrie bout were the money just came from and will it cost something else to get interrupted

well maybe cause she is

well maybe cause she is living off show appearances and endorsements... I heard that in Young Money themselves put in 1.2 million into promotions and marketing, etc. The problem with that is Universal get paid first, then Motown, then Cash Money last Young Money. Since those are the parent companies. So hopefully she can push platinum

She really needs to drop the stupid faces and voices and the Barbie schitck; but I guess it is too late for that now, since she has already established her "brand."

Why drop the faces and

Why drop the faces and voices??? She went to acting school... this is fun for her and most people like it so why change it for the critics? Does she have to fit a certain mold to be an "artist" or can she be just that... an ARTIST!

Nicki Minaj: My Time Now was

Nicki Minaj: My Time Now was directed by Michael John Warren. The film is great. He was also the director for Drake: Better Than Good Enough and Jay-Z’s Fade To Black. Found his site – mjwfilms.com. In case anyone is curious who is behind the camera.

Everyone is saying they

Everyone is saying they respect Nicki more after the documentary.. As a fan, I was actually NOT feeliing her in the 1hr long special. I felt she gave mixed personalities.. It just felt she was acting way to hard. I feel she is a drama queen and has a serious ego. Most new artists are HUMBLE and HUNGRY.. At times, she has this real pompous attitude that I truly cannot respect. The way she demanded Safaree bring her ish.. It is like he is her personal slave. She seems very fake to me. I like her style, mixtape flow - but I think she is heading down the wrong direction. I actually LOVE Lil Kim and admire Nicki as a new artist.. I feel this beef thing is being blown out of proportions. Fans shouldn't have to pick.. I refuse to be Team Nicki or Team Kim. The idea itself is pathetic.. I will say this -- I'm happy that Kim is back in the studio.. At least she can do a few club apperances and perform her song. I truly think Nicki is big right now - but not sure about her longevity.. Her album wasn't great and it doesn't reach many audiences.. One thing I can say - Hardcore was a classic album.. even though Biggie wrote it. Much success to Nicki..but she needs to humble herself.. and really put out quality songs.. Enough with the gimmicks.. If you want to be dubbed the best to ever do it.. You gotta stretch yourself like you did on all your collabs (Up All Night with Drake , Monster with Kanye, Hello Good Morning wih Diddy & Ross) .. Enough is enough.. As a true hip hop fan - we can't call Nicki the Queen when Lauryn, Remi, Eve, Trina, Kim, Foxy, Latifah, Shawna came with better lyrics. Ladies..we gotta hold our own to higher standards!!

I kinda agree with you bout

I kinda agree with you bout the standards thing & the not picking sides. I luv Nicki!! but i kno that she cant b the queen jus lik that. it takes time & whole lot of otha ishh. i thnk she is great even tho her career may or may not last long. but wat i kinda wasnt feeling from you (lol) was how you werent feeling her in the show. i understand how you thnk she shud b more humble. but she basically is a "hot commodity" so i guess wanting more 4 herself wud mean b alil more "boss". i mean we dont kno the real situation 4 the pickle juice at a photo shoot with a $50 clothes budget. her name is alil bigger then rookie now so y hav less. & where did she "demand" safaree 2 bring her stuff? didnt she [ask] him 2 bring her those slippers?
