You might know Nicki Minaj when you see her face. But you don’t “KNOW” her.

In a brand new hour-long E! special, the Harajuku Barbie details her rise to super-stardom, from working at Red Lobster to becoming today’s biggest female Hip-Hop star. Minaj also talks about growing up poor, a fifth grade teacher who “changed her life,” stealing her dad’s car and how Lil Wayne almost nixed her verse from “Bedrock.”
