Behind the Video: Nicki Minaj – ‘Right Thru Me’

Nicki Minaj

The drama ain’t over for Nicki Minaj. The Harajuku Barbie tackles the ups and downs of relationships in the video for “Right Thru Me,” the newest single off her debut album Pink Friday (due Nov. 23).

Speaking to “ET” from the Los Angeles set, the Young Money raptress revealed a few tidbits about the visuals for the sensual tune. “The concept of the video is boy-and-girl relationship drama, all of the intimate stuff as well as the fighting as well as the self-reflecting type stuff,” she explained. “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.”

The hip-hop Barbie, who shared her love of Bruce Willis, George Michael, and Naughty by Nature’s Treach, also said that the song doesn’t just stem from a personal place, but is relatable to anyone that has ever been in a relationship.

“The song to me is very, very personal. I haven’t spoken about an authentic relationship since I’ve come out, so this is my first time where I’m speaking about something very, very authentic that everyone in the world can relate to,” she added. “Not everybody is rich, not everybody likes jewelry, not everyone 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.”
