Nicki Minaj or Onika Tanya Maraj as she is known to friends and family – is one of the best female rappers around with huge hits such as Super Bass, Starships and Pound the Alarm under her belt.
The quadruple platinum artist is renowned for her unique style – using fantasy alter ego’s to create something unique. Or slightly odd.
To celebrate the R and B star’s life – heat TV will be airing a brand new series of Real Stories starting with Nicki. With revelations, scandal and expert analysis from heat editor Lucie Cave and the Mirror’s showbiz editor, Dean Piper – this is one definitely not to miss.
The hour-long episode will explore the highs and lows of the 29-year-olds rise to fame. From a eccentric girl growing up in the queens to the controversial artist we see now. Have a first look here at what she was like growing up.
Remember last week’s “eat sh*t and die” message to fans? Lovely.
From her old dance teacher to her friends and old hood crew, all the worms are sneaking their way out of the woodwork, just for heat TV.
Our personal favourite is when the little diva got her entire class at school to shout "We love Onika' - watch the video below for a sneak preview.
