LOS ANGELES, Jan. 9 (UPI) -- Nicki Minaj details the recording of her new album in a new trailer from her upcoming MTV documentary My Time Again.
The minute-long clip begins with Minaj stating she "didn't know that [her new album 'The Pinkprinkt] would entail an emotional roller coaster," and while she doesn't offer many details as to why, the albums's multiple delays and eventual leak are two good explanations for it.
The trailer then cuts to the rapper at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, where one of her dancers was bitten by a snake.
"When I'm faced with crazy adversities. I turn on a switch that I don't even know I have sometimes", Minaj says in a voice over, later adding. "When I was a waitress, we had to steal bread and eat that."
My Time Again is a follow up to the singer's 2010 documentary My Time Now, where she documented her rise to fame in the rap world. Like she stated in the intro of the trailer, the new film will follow the emotional ride she had while working on The Pinkprint -- an album believed to have been partly inspired by the demise of her 12-year relationship with Safaree Samuels.
Nicki Minaj: My Time Again premieres Sunday, Jan. 18 on MTV.
