Who is Nicki Minaj? She’s the most buzzed-about music star since Lady Gaga, and she hasn’t even released an album yet! She’s worked with Usher, Mariah Carey and Diddy — and now we’re on the set of the rapper/R&B star’s new music video, “Right Thru Me”!
“The concept of the video is boy-and-girl relationship drama, you know, all of the intimate stuff as well as the fighting as well as the self-reflecting type stuff,” says Nicki. “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 song to me is very, very personal,” she adds. “I haven’t spoken about an authentic relationship since I’ve come out. … Not everybody is rich, not everyone likes jewelry, not everybody 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.”
Watch the video to watch a “rapid-fire round” in which Nicki reveals her favorite escapes, guilty pleasures and even her childhood crushes!
Nicki’s much-buzzed-about new album, Pink Friday, drops November 23.
