Nicki Minaj shared two clips of her upcoming Queen documentary that was filmed while she was recording her album. In one of the preview clips she opens up about facing domestic violence in the past. She says she witnessed it both as a child and has experienced it, in a past relationship now as an adult.

She can be sitting on a couch and gets emotional as she recalls, “I remember when my mother would let my father be violent with her, she always brings up this story. As a little girl, I would stand in front of my mother and go like this,” she added, and spreads her arms apart to demonstrate as if to block or protect from something. “That’s why maybe some people would describe me as abrasive or bitchy or whatever because I vowed from that age no man would ever abuse me, call me out my name, treat me like that,” she goes on and wipes away a tear, “And then all of a sudden, that was my life. Everything that I said I would never…”

In the second clip she discusses how after a bad relationship she had low self-esteem and struggled to make music. She confesses, “I was so low, I didn’t even remember who I was.” Then goes on to say when she was able to eventually come out of that state she and recorded the tracks “Good Form” and “Coco Chanel” that are now featured on Queen. The captions for both clips just read, “#Queen The Documentary Soon”, watch the full clips below.
