Nicki Minaj has signed a deal to front a six part documentary series on her career that will be available via HBO’s streaming service HBO Max. The announcement of that deal coincides with the tenth anniversary of her ‘Pink Friday’ album.

“It’s going to give you guys a raw unfiltered look at my personal life and my professional journey and I can’t wait to share it with you”, says Minaj of the show, in a statement.

Director Michael John Warren adds: “I love that this series not only provides an all-access glimpse at one of the most iconic musicians of our generation, it also profiles the brave woman behind the artist, Onika. I believe all of us can learn a great deal from her remarkable professional and personal life. It’s an honour to be entrusted with this dynamic story”.

Nicki Minaj’s real name is Onika Maraj-Petty, just in case you were confused about any of what Warren was talking about there. He has previously made two other documentaries about Minaj, so he should know by now what bits of her life and career to cover.

The show is currently untitled and no date has yet been given for when it will be available.
