The second installation of Nicki Minaj’s three-part E! special My Truth picks up on the set of her video shoot for The Boys, but as the show progresses, the YMCMB rapper addresses the fallout from her American Idol feud with Mariah Carey, and specifically Barbara Walter’s involvement in the beef.
On the show, Nicki complains to Mack Maine that the cameras did not capture the moments leading up to her outburst; “20 minutes before that happened, she egged me on and I walked off — I stormed off the stage because didn’t wanna do that. So 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 somebody’s coming to steal her shine,” Nicki added. “And nitpicking, nitpicking, nitpicking — I don’t do well with that passive aggress sh–. I’m not gonna allow it no more. I can’t. I work and keep it moving, I don’t even f— with the people in this business.”
Later, she goes on an epic rant!
“I really felt good when I left yesterday and then I hear that Mariah went to Barbara Walters with some more fabrication that even the producers told her was never said,” she explained. “Telling Barbara I said something about a gun, which everybody knows that I’m way smarter than that. Literally my jaw was just hanging open and I was in shock. I’ve never in my life said anything regarding a gun.”
“Am I not good enough for you to get my side, because I’m a little black girl that raps?” she said, addressing Walters directly. “Because if I was J. Lo, you would’ve called J. Lo’s camp. But are we not good enough for you Barbara? ‘Cause you wasn’t even there when I was on the show Barbara. So I guess I’m not good enough, but I’m only good enough for you to tell people I’m ‘unpredictable,’ when you don’t f—–g know me?”
The special three-part Nicki Minaj: My Truth concludes next Sunday at 10:30 p.m. ET on E!
