Nicki Minaj Confirmed for E! Reality Specials

Nicki Minaj

Before Nicki Minaj makes her debut on “American Idol” in January, fans will get a closer look into her life on an E! reality special. The network has confirmed that the “Pound the Alarm” rapper will star in three episodes.

The trilogy will give viewers intimate access into her personal and professional life with never-before-seen footage when it begins airing in November.

“If you only have such one-dimensional things to go off of, like rumors and stuff on blogs, then you kinda never get to know the artist, and when you pull them in your world, they see you as a real person and they understand everything,” said Nicki, who previously starred in the 2010 MTV documentary, “My Time Now.” “I’m not running away from it anymore.”

Meanwhile, her re-release Pink Friday…Roman Reloaded Re-Up is due in November featuring five to six new songs including “The Boys” with Cassie and a collaboration with Lil Wayne.

    @BEDSTUYFLY, That’s one of the major things you should care about as an artist. If you have no money how do you fund your projects ? People be saying the most ignorant shit.

    @Roman, lol super true. It’s funny how her haters promote her more than her fans. Her haters will be responsible for 40% of the views American Idol gets.

    Yasss Rap-Up better stan!

    The rest of you hating ass losers will be sitting your saggy asses on the couch to watch this and be the FIRST ones to comment once Rap-Up uploads the footage. STOP IT!

    Nicki has dominated non-stop during this ENTIRE year. So the bitches you stan for that can’t trade studio time for edges and announce an album release can sit the fuck down!

    Oh and fixate. Since Nicki put ‘Pink Friday’ out 2 years ago. A rap bitch has yet to release an album. Ponder that.

    @Roman, you nicki minaj fans seriously make me sick. It’s like you think nicki minaj is the only rapper/singer that had hype this year. We also had Kanye, big Sean, Rick Ross, j cole, 2 chainz, and meek mill (all better than nicki minaj and arguably had more hype) snap this year. Facts are nicki minaj USED to be a decent rapper when she had her mix tapes but now she releases a whole bunch of crappy pop songs and only like 2 ACTUAL RAP songs, and that she hasn’t dominated anything this year. The only reason nicki minaj is on the this super pop singer level is because the garbage pop songs she’s put out, so don’t act like she got big off real rap shit.

    @LOL, she’s a female rapper not a male rapper, so dnt get it twistd. ps: luv u haterz

    LOL Reply:

    @Now Datz Whut Imma Talkin Bout, what does her being a female have to do with anything? Roman said she has “dominated” this year as a rapper and that isn’t true. What does her being a female have to do with anything? Also, you ratchet ass chicks need to stop calling everyone that doesn’t agree with your fellow “barbz” haters. I don’t hate on nicki, she dropped some bomb verses on some of her features, I just don’t like you insecure highly defensive nicki fans. It’s like you people are all the same arrogant person. You guys are living in this huge reality distortion field, believing that she is the only good female rapper out and has “dominated” since 2010. Like every fad, the idiot fans will go away along with the fad itself.

    @LOL, blah blah fucking blah, we’ve heard it all before. yes nicki don’t rap like she did FOUR FUCKING YEARS AGO. artist need to evolve. who says she can’t dabble into different genres of music to gain a larger fanbase ? i mean, who wouldn’t ? and the joke is, if nicki was still rapping like how she was four years ago you haters would be trying to come at her for that. fuck, why knock someone’s hustle ? admit it, she is clearly winning and this isn’t even coming from a fan!

    [Reply]

    LOL Reply:

    @.-.,How is selling out counted as evolving as an artist? Anyone can make crappy pop beats and sing horribly to them, and then prance around half nude in the videos. That isn’t a “dabble” into a different genre, that’s straight up selling out.

    “and the joke is, if nicki was still rapping like how she was four years ago you haters would be trying to come at her for that.” False. If she was still putting out real rap shit like she was before then I would applaud her for being a female in rap that puts out good shit like that for so long and MAYBE she’d be comparable to someone like missy elliot. But she isn’t. All she is now is another garbage pop singer who makes female artist look like nothing but sex objects. Once her time is up, she’ll end up like every other fad of the moment getting dropped from the label and struggling for a hit.

    “admit it, she is clearly winning and this isn’t even coming from a fan!” How the hell is she winning? Her record sales aren’t meeting the quota and there are tons of female pop singers (this is what I’m going to be calling minaj for now on) that are MILES ahead of her. Adele, Taylor Swift, Pink, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Lady GaGa, all do better than her. Far from winning if you ask me.

    @MusicFan, Hmmmm. Eve had her own tv show, AND a clothing line.

    Lil Kim had her own tv show, AND was a judge
    on “the pussycat dolls present: the search for the next doll” (which pulled in a good amount of views).

    Not to mention Lil Mama has been on ABDC for 7 seasons.

    And you don’t think Kim, Missy, Lauryn, Eve, or Queen Latifah have had sold-out arena tours? LOL!

    @MusicFan, “Pussycat doll judging gig”… YES REALLY! PCD’s 1st album came out in 2005 and went 2x platinum, the show cameout right
    after. And the ratings were more then good…. Was she not a judge? YES SHE WAS.

    And I never said Nicki wasn’t “winning”. Just that 99% of the stuff she’s doing has already been done…. Dumb Bell.

    YMCMB_#1STUNNA Reply:

    @DC3BKM, but dont forget. in order to be a legend. you have to be loved by all. Hip Hop has pretty much abandoned her after the 2nd album.
    maybe she’s just in it for the money.
    if so, more power to her.

    TMOE Reply:

    @YMCMB_#1STUNNA, You think Jay is loved by everyone? HELL NO! And he is the BLUEPRINT… When you fan base is as Loyal as Nicki’s you don’t need no one else… And don’t say her fans aren’t loyal cause PF:RR didn’t go platinum in the US cause they was never fans then. Half of the BIG BOY rappers you all like haven’t even reached GOLD yet. SO SIT and change your @ name cause u ain’t YMCMB nothing cause that says YOUNG MONEY CASH MONEY. which means everyone in YMCM. Just write who u like cause..

    Keepin it real Reply:

    @YMCMB_#1STUNNA, Just b/c you’re a barb doesn’t mean you can’t discuss hip-hop matters. I happen to be a true dedicated Nicki stan, but Starships wasn’t my favorite song by her. I support her for more than her songs, also her movement and what she stands for. When I’m not listening to Nicki I listen to real hip-hop just because I’m a barb doesn’t mean Tupac, Biggie, Jay, Kendrick, Foxy, J.Cole aren’t in my playlist. And tbh your name is YMCMB, they aren’t really who you name when talking “real hip-hop”. Just saying.

    DC3BKM Reply:

    @YMCMB_#1STUNNA, You dont have to be loves by all to be a legend actually. There are many legends in hip hop who are despised by a lot of the hip hop community.

  16. diamond candy

    WHAT i DOON’T GET IS WHY DO PEOPLE HATE THIS WOMAN SO MUCH.

    sorry for caps but she is the ONLY female rapper keeping the genre alive at all. At least respect her for that if you not feeling her movement or whatever. This is a damn mans world. Sometimes I feel peopel want women to go back in the old times where they can’t be apart of things. That’s got to be why she is gettig all this hate because people want to drive all the females away.

    Face it, it’s so many more worse male rappers in the game right now than nicki and she has gotten on a track with practically every respected male rapper or rnb singer and people still won’t give the woman her respect. Sad
