Nicki Minaj - Nicki Minaj Gets Tearful On 'Pound The Alarm' Video Shoot

Subscribe to Nicki Minaj alerts

A teaser video for Nicki Minaj 's forthcoming video show's the normally-steely rapper getting emotional in her birthplace of Trinidad and Tobago. Nicki was filming the video for 'Pound the Alarm' and can be seen arriving at the airport, where the locals begin screaming and trying to take snaps of her on their mobile phones. As she talks to the camera about the last time she visited her birthplace, she gets visibly choked and the scene quickly cuts away.
"I never thought in a million years I would ever do this," she explains to the camera. "The last time I came to Trinidad, this was the exact room that I stayed in. This is where we shot 'My Time Now' for MTV. My whole family came in." and it's at that point that she looks to be getting too emotional and turns away, before the scene switches. During the two and a half minute video, Nicki can be heard describing how supportive the women of Trinidad and Tobago are of her and she is filmed wearing traditional carnival dress, as are many of the women who feature alongside her in the colourful video. One group of girls shout to her "We love you Nicki!" before a guy can be heard saying ""What's good Nicki?! Thanks for being in Trinidad. This video is going to be very hot."
Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj made the headlines yesterday after The Guardian reported that she complained about the length of the grass backstage. A source has told them "She said it was far too long for her to walk on. She threw a complete strop, pouting and pointing and asking someone to get a lawnmower to sort it out." Could it be that the long grass was to blame for her being an hour late to the stage that night?
