Nicki Minaj shared more of her journey on the second episode of her E! reality show “Nicki Minaj: My Truth.” The 30-minute episode picked up where she left off last week on the set of “The Boys.”
She meets up with choreographer Laurieann Gibson to rehearse for her “Pink Friday: Reloaded” tour, going over outfits and learning some new moves including one involving a stripper pole. Although Nicki is hesitant to slide down it at first, she eventually gives in.
Lil Wayne makes a cameo when Nicki visits him at The Hit Factory in Miami so he can record his verse for her new song “Hell Yeah” (His verse ended up on “High School”).
She also addresses her infamous feud with fellow “American Idol” judge Mariah Carey. She refuted the comments Mariah told Barbara Walters (“If I had a gun, I would shoot that bitch”) and fired back at “The View” host (“Am I not good enough for you to get my side ’cause I’m a little black girl that raps?”).
“Twenty minutes before that happened, she egged me on,” Nicki told Young Money president Mack Maine. “I stormed off the stage ’cause I didn’t want to do that. I left and when I came back, it was another jab…. She’s admitted that she did not want another female doing the show thinking that somebody was coming to steal her shine.”
The episode ends with her shooting her part for Alicia Keys’ “Girl on Fire” video at her mansion in Malibu.
