The 'Super Bass' singer told USA Today that the show will bring fans along on her public appearances as well as show them intimate moments.
"I guess what will most surprise a lot of people who may not be die-hard fans who haven't known me for a long time is the honesty," Minaj explained.
She continued: "I'm not trying to have a façade. I'm showing exactly what goes on in my life. I think people will be surprised at seeing that.
"[Viewers will see] the crazy stuff and high momentum [and see me in] the studio where it's reflective."
Minaj also acknowledged that it was not easy for her to allow cameras to follow her every move for weeks at a time.
"I'm such a private person, it was a bit hard," she admitted. "When I'm around my circle I just kind of loosen up. You'll see by the first episode that I didn't care that the cameras were on."
Nicki Minaj: My Truth will follow the star recording her next album in New York and Miami, capture her at an American Idol photo shoot, and document her highly-publicised UK tour.
The first episode of the three-part series airs 10.30/9.30c on E! on Sunday, November 4.
