Nicki Minaj's 'The Pinkprint Movie' Will Make Your Heart Ache

Nicki Minaj's new breakup film has arrived. In "The Pinkprint Movie," the artist combines tracks off her new album "Pinkprint" to tell the story of a relationship holding on by its last threads. The video -- which is divided into parts "The Crying Game," "I Lied," and "Grand Piano"-- captures the accompanying feelings of heartbreak with aplomb. It lasts sixteen minutes, so make sure to have a box of tissues ready before hitting play. On the not so sad side, Minaj's vocals have never sounded better.

Some speculate that the short film is inspired by Minaj's real-life breakup with her longtime boyfriend Safaree Samuels. Though Minaj has not said that the video is based on their relationship, Minaj got emotional with Power 105.1's Angie Martinez when discussing the split in a radio interview last week:

"I've never been single for the past 15 years of my life," she said.

"I don't even know how I'm gonna function without that person in my life. I've never lived my life as a famous person without him. So I don't even know how to really function. I tell my girlfriends, my best friends, but sometimes I still want to tell him stuff and get his opinion, cause..."

The "Anaconda" singer then took a break in the interview after getting visibly upset. Watch Minaj's the full interview with Power 105.1 here.
