US rapper, Nicki Minaj has shared two emotional clips from her forthcoming documentary around her latest album Queen.

Minaj,35, details her mother's physical abuse at the hands of her father: "I remember when my mother would let my father be violent with her.

"Maybe some people would describe me as abrasive or bitchy or whatever, because I vowed from that age no man would ever abuse me, call me out my name, treat me like that, and all of a sudden that was my life," says Minaj.

"Who was I going to inspire when I had nothing in me to give?," Minaj adds tearfully.

"I let one human being make me so low that I didn't remember who I was."
