No matter how rich or successful a person is, no one can really buy true happiness. This is what Nicki Minaj somehow showed to people during her tell-all at the MTV documentary “My Time Again.” Read on for more details.

According to, the MTV Special was released on Sunday, Jan. 18, 2015. It showed Minaj as she opened up on her life before and during her time as a celebrity. Some of the highlights noted in the documentary were the snakebite incident of one of her backup dancers during their VMAs practice, her wardrobe malfunction during the VMAs, her current love life and her emotional reveal of her abortion.

According to Rap-Up, when one of the backup dancers was bitten by an anaconda they planning to use for the show, Minaj was one of the people who tried to take control of the situation and calmed the poor dancer down.

She also relays on how grateful she was to the people supporting her during the wardrobe mishap. She particularly mentioned Beyoncé when she told her, “As an entertainer, I gained so much more respect for you because of that.”

With regards to her love life, she tells of how hurt she was after breaking off her 11-year relationship with Safaree Samuels and how it inspired her in making her album. She also mentioned on how she imagined herself years from now as a breastfeeding mother while maintaining a successful career.

She even gave some details on her abortion of her child from ex-boyfriend Aaron at the young age of 15. She says that should the child have lived, she would have named it Caiah and would have been almost 16 by now.

Her appearance in “My Time Again” is actually her second. She also appeared on the said documentary’s prequel in 2010, which was entitled “My Time Now.” It is also rumoured that the MTV documentary is actually a three-part series, so we may hear more about Minaj’s story.
