Minaj revealed the detail at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards press room following her Best Hip Hop Video win for “Super Bass.”

“Well, the new album is going to have a lot of Roman on it, and if you’re not familiar with Roman, you will be familiar with him soon,” Minaj hinted. “He’s a boy who lives inside of me.”

In an 2010 interview with New York Magazine, Minaj explained that she first developed alter egos as a child to escape her parents’ marital woes: "To get away from all their fighting, I would imagine being a new person. 'Cookie' was my first identity – that stayed with me for a while. I went on to 'Harajuku Barbie,' then 'Nicki Minaj.' Fantasy was my reality."
