    I really like her as a person.

    Irrelevant sidenote: Her upperbody is in good shape but she’s fat below. Odd.

    I thought it would be a series or like arealtity tv show but it was a really good documentary. It showed the highs and lows of being rich and famous. People seem to get this idea that it’s easy money but it’s not.

    Nicki Minaj is very misunderstood. Nicki really deserves all of her success. She came from humble beginnings and she has worked hard. Lot of blood, sweat, and tears and people give her so much hell.

    I love how she wants to do so much for her family and seeing them happy is what makes her happy. It seems like she gets her humbleness from her moms side of the family.

    Loved this. Very introspective. I also liked how they showed the tender moments like her spoiling her family and her missing her grandmother. Fantastic job, MTV.

    I love this woman so much more after watching this doco! It was actually very moving and emotionally charged, to see that she was motivated by her family and her statement at the end about it not being about money, but about having a life for her and her family without struggle. It showed she is human, grounded, but also motivated for good reasons.

    Loved seeing Onika!
    Go for success baby girl! x

    Wow this is amazing, made me cry when she poured out her heart. Not many artists are like this, taking care of their family & who value the real meaning of life.

    She will go down as one of the greatest, may God bless her soul.

    wonderful documentary,i hope this let the critics know her a little more,because they put her through so much crap,and i hope the people who misunderstood her,and be thinking she just pop up on the seen that she didn’t,and that she isn’t some put together Gimick that they think she is and trying to make other people think the same,she bin on the grind for so long,she deserve her success and only haters would want to tell her different,keep on staying humble Nicki and still keep your eyes on the prize and never become complacent.

    My Time Now was directed by Michael John Warren. The film was great. He also directed Drake: Better Than Good Enough and Jay-Z’s Fade To Black. Found his site – mjwfilms.com. There are lots of clips there.

    I’m glad people get to see her world from her point of view. And she was soooo right about that VMA performance. Before she even went on she said, “People are going to bash me.” And they did. I hope all continues to go well for Ms. Minaj and her family. :)

    I’m glad it seems that I can watch it here. I don’t have a problem w/N.Minaj but the fan wars really put a bad taste in some people’s mouths and it makes them sick. I respect hustle and hard work so no hate on her. Let’s just stop the hate (and the ridiculous, pointless arguing) altogether! <3

    i luv nicki and her music but i find it hypocritical that she implying dat she wnts ppl to follow their dreams an all dat stuff, but in monster she sez just killed another career its a mild day….. she wouldnt have liked it if someone did that to her from the start (lil kim) when they really had the power to do so.

    This documentary was truly amazing. I was holding back tears b/c we have a lot in common and I could relate to a lot of things that she was feeling. People are always going to have different opinions but she is human just like anyone else. She’s beautiful, talented, and successful. I will continue to follow and support her. Keep doing your thing girl! (:

    I feel that everyone in life has been through trials and tribulations and from all those obstacles some intend to strive for the best and others give up from their destination. Nicky has PREVAILED and as taken the time to ellaborate to others that life is not PERFECT but it’s summed up to be what you want it to be. Respect I have for eveyone but what I have gained from Nicky Minaj is a sense of Wisdom, Inspiration,Courage to believe in myself and never give up on the True PRIZE in life and that the blessing that God has invest among us allllllllllll.

    I respect her so much more for this. Sometimes with artists I prefer not to know about their personal lives, just know them in terms of their craft–but I see her in such a different light. And it’s quite wonderful.
