[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...

I like the documentary,

I like the documentary, surprised me in a lot of ways. Giving her the benefit of the the doubt.

I am glad she sold just to

I am glad she sold just to save face, but regardless if you love or hate her, or love or hate Lil Kim, we all know (young and older, pop or hip hop) that her cd was trash. This isn't just my opinion (I only heard snippets, couldn't buy it) but the reviews are in and it didn't pass the elementary grade. She has the sales, but I am wondering how it will fare once people start telling their friends about it., etc. I just think she won't continue to sell because it just wasn't good enough--it was all over the places. As for doc, I did try to watch some, the Sunday football wasn't as exciting as I thought. She is on her hustle, but she really is pumped up and believes she is delivering us new hip hop. I love confidence, but cockiness without the real talent, is just wasted gas. She has potential, but the problem is that her mouth is bigger than her lyrics. She thinks she is smarter than all before her and better at the game. She is cockier than Kanye and that is saying something. But, before someone says I'm a hater, I always try to give a compliment. She is always on her makeup. Her face always looks nice and she has a nice shape, with or without the fake stuff. But, as for a rapper and maybe even a person, I am not sure she is a real as her fans want to believe. She has a lot of people fooled, especially the pop world and the young people world, but her presence is like her cd, it leaves something to be desired.

Everyone I know who has

Why speak for everyone? Her

Why speak for everyone? Her whole album LEAKED and folks STILL ran out to buy it. Clearly she has fans and people who liked her album. First folks said she wouldn't sale. Now that she IS saling something, here comes the "folks didnt' like her CD" ish. She has FANS. I don't care for many artists and their music, but I don't just assume they ain't got real fans. Just because I don't like an artist doesn't mean they don't have their fans.

people bought the album out

people bought the album out of curiosity, period, shes not going to sell anymore.

Why not download it for FREE

Why not download it for FREE out of curiousity? With the digital age out there, folks could've downloaded her entire album for FREE. I haven't heard of folks just going out in droves to buy an album out of curiousity especially when the WHOLE album was on youtube. What was there to be curious about?

I'm with you, while I am

I'm with you, while I am somewhat surprised by her sales. Many of those who bought the CD said that it was garbage so it will be interesting to see how it does in the weeks to come after a friend tells a friend and so on, it may have some trouble reaching platinum status. Other than that personally I've only heard one song on underground radio with her and drake but I thought it was OK

I do not like Nicki but maybe

I do not like Nicki but maybe I would like Onika! I think that the problem that so many people have with Nicki is that her image is better than her talent. She has been very promoted and that leads to expectations of greatness. There are a lot of recording artists who are successful even though they may not have the skills to back it up because they have star quality! Some fans really want that, they want a star who has a great image other people want the raw talent!

seriously she may not be the

seriously she may not be the best rapper ever, but the girl is just trying to put food on the table and give her family a better life. Look just like Rihanna. Who wouldn't?

I am truly laughing at you

I am truly laughing at you haters right now. Loving the way many are mimicking Lil Kim like dazed out puppets. The chick is a success because it the haters that propel her. The chick is a success because no one is doing what she is doing right now....she is filling a void that we are yearning for....a female in the rap game. It frustrates me when I see women trying so hard to keep another woman down. Why do you think the male MCs has such longevity? Its because they aren't going so hard on the next dude. Take that energy and feed it into album. I like a one or two songs of Nicki's but not a major fan of her music. But why the need to hate? She buys clothes for her family, you all hate. Everyone accepts Beyonce's alter ego, but you hate on Roman? seriously? I really like this documentary because I was able to see a glimpse in the artist off stage, their struggles prior to the success and where they came from. It shows what drives the passion and the hunger to be on top. Kudos to Nicki/Onika for staying true to herself and family. To the women on this board, including Natacha- Stay true to yourself, uplift others and be positive to the women that is trying to be their own Boss.

I actually thought the

I actually thought the documentary showed Nikkis vulnerable side. She looked less like a barbie and more like a human being. It made her personable and approachable. I am not a music artist but I can imagine the pressure and problems she has to deal with as a female and then again as a female RAPPER in the media. She cant be everything at once and frankly if i was in her shoes I would be going crazy. Keep up the good job nikki!!!! I know I wouldnt be able to handle all of that right now and I want to be famous one day and you gave me the courage to keep going!

Now to have seen this side

Now to have seen this side form her, and now i truly see how much she cares for her family/others and her backgroundstory, i dont understand that she came out to be a rapstar of the the stupidest version ever , i mean have a backgroundlike that be so real YET u choose to come out so fake and plastic hmm i guess why her and barbie have a similarity THEIR BOTH MADE IN CHINA!!!!

I could agree with you, if we

I could agree with you, if we knew what the hell minaj was saying! Also, you think talking about being with girls is a great thing for girls to hear? She curses and says things that aren't nice either. The fact of the matter is, she wants to be like KIM and that's it! KIM did and does what has always worked for her and minaj does what she thinks work for her! Stop being mad at KIM, remember, she was here first...

I'm happy I ain't the only

I'm happy I ain't the only one who noticed she had nothing to say about the Keri video. Bottomline for me? She's not an awful person, she ain't commiting crimes etc., I definitely related to her visiting her fam on the islands. We would all love to have enough money to provide for our family and it's nice to see folks who DO have enough, share it.

The moments with her family

The moments with her family were very sentimental. Although, my opinion of her music remains.

What A Bore!! I Havent Been

What A Bore!! I Havent Been This Turned Off Since The Record Label Gave R.Kelly that Video Camera, LOL. I Guess cus I like to watch TV for entertainment and not an explanation of why someone's career is mediocre. I find it funny that she said "Roman" is a 'guy' trapped inside of her. I guess that explains her bein a dyke/butch lesbian/klonDYKE/Stud back in NY....Yall know the Youtube video she denied that I'm talkin about lol.

I don't see how you can EVEN

I don't see how you can EVEN compare the two. She cried because her grandmother passed away and didn't get to see her success. How the h@ll does that compare to Brown crying because he beat a woman up? You sound ridiculous.

Actually, IT DID. Before I thought she was a cartoon gimick for kids and now I can she is a grown woman just like the rest of us trying to make her dreams happen. I hope she continues to shine bright, she is a beautiful spirit not a clown. I am now a fan.
Just Me's picture

I agree.... At first I didn't

I agree.... At first I didn't have a set opinion about her because I was still trying to figure her out. She said something so profound "If this fails I have nothing to fall back on". That's true courage right there. Nicki is very smart and I truly wish her the best. Those who do not have "big dreams/goals" will never understand the risk many "big dreamers" take to be successful! Nicki you have definitely gained my repsect because you are out there handling your business and not settling for less.

This did give me a different

This did give me a different view of NM. i see why she struggles and does what she does..for family..something we all wish we can strive to do for our families. Lil Kim was the ish in her days and like some of the posts say...Kim let NM have her time and let her rock...Hating on someone never gets you anywhere but more distress when you lay down at night because all your comsummed with is what the next person have that you want...Move on Kim and do some acting, sexy clothing line for the mature adult classy lady...somethng besides doing these "Diss NM" tracks. I am not a fan or stan of NM or Lil Kim but it is redamdiculious that this is going on. I wish NM much luck in her career and any future projects. Keep being you and you will continue to have much success. Keep God first in all you do and He will guide your path. I am sure this has been a dream she visualized for many many years...not it is her reality...No hating is necessary at all. She is able and does take care of her family. It would have been nice to see some interaction with her children but each person has a reason for keeping their children out of the media's eye...Probably would be more negative comments so i respect her decision.
