"The American Music Awards was set to be an amazing performance, but then I had a horrible malfunction with the clothes and the hair ten minutes before I opened," she tells the new issue of Complex magazine. "So I was backstage having a f—ing nervous breakdown. My hair was supposed to light up, my choker was too small."

Ever the pro, Minaj managed to pull it together. "So while I was in the box, waiting for the show to open, I had to rip the s— off, throw it to the side, and act like nothing happened. When I got off stage I freaked out because it was just so emotional. I really, really, really wanted that to be a dope show."

"They took stuff that I've worn, focused on what I like, and then they started doing sketches," she says. "They're pretty amazing. I was like 'Oh my God, the kids are going to love this.' It's not gonna get done overnight, but I know that it's something they're going to love."
