THE US rapper has shared two emotional clips from her forthcoming documentary around her latest album Queen.
She 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 the 35-year-old.
Who was I going to inspire when I had nothing in me to give?” she adds tearfully.
“I let one human being make me so low that I didn’t remember who I was.”
The hip hop star, who was born Trinidad and raised in Queens, New York, doesn’t reveal the identity of her former partner in the clips.
