Nicki Minaj Spills On Childhood, The Music Industry, And The Haters!

It's clear Nicki Minaj doesn't give a shiz what people think about her and now we know why!!!

Nicki confessed to Teen Vogue that she had to deal with her fair share of sticky icky times during her childhood, especially when her parents argued, but it was those obstacles that prepared her for the sometimes immature music industry and made her capable of shutting out the haters.

The tough-as-nails American Idol judge revealed:

“Every time my parents fought, my mother would have us move and I would have to go to a new school, which meant I’d have to face the task of making new friends. I dreaded it. I had butterflies in my stomach each time: Are people going to like or hate me? … Sometimes there’d be a fight, sometimes not. I let people know I wasn’t going to be pushed around. People treat this business like it’s high school. It can absolutely feel like one big popularity contest, and you know what? I can’t be bothered. I can’t allow myself to play ridiculous games with grown adults in the industry. I can’t be nice to someone just because they’re hot right now. I can’t do it.”

And that's why we love you, gurl! You always keep it real!

But besides the shmoozing that fame requires, it also means opening yourself up to criticism.

So how does she stop the meanies from getting to her???!

Ignore them!

The rapping wonder continued:

“I used to read the bad things people said about me. Then I asked myself, ‘Why am I reading that when I have millions of people saying great things?’ You cannot give negativity power. I tell teens, if you’re having a problem, there’s nothing wrong with deleting your social media. If people keep taunting you and you keep reading it, it’s poison.”

And that's how it is done people!

She might not be America's sweetheart, but Nicki is still a GREAT role model for girl power.

Keep doing you, Nicki!!!!

    I don't like her or how she intentionally bubble gummed herself up to appeal to toddlers and young children. She gave Perez an interview so they are simpatico buddies, so you won't see him doing anything but positive articles on her because he's got something to gain.

    I have respect for her in that she doesn't kiss ass. Say what you want about her, at least she keeps it real/honest. I also like her advice to teens about their social media. She's not half bad. good for her.

    Glad she addressed them, she rocks. Most of her haters are racist white trash, who cares about them anyway :-)

    Re: Prince Charming – You know, I find your comment offensive just because one doesn't care for her behavior is no reason to label them racist. I didnt care for Katie perry and her bubble gum toddler outfits either, but I certainly don't care for her constant temper tantrums and what the el does that have to do with the color if her shin?

    Re: Prince Charming – I have NEVER in my life addressed any nationality in such a destructive racist rant in my life, no matter if I agreed with their statements or not.

    HAHAHA No matter what your excuse Nicki Minaj, When you play the age card towards Mariah Carey…You have shown that you have no respect for your elders and their success!!! You have shown how ugly, uneducated,rude and no class or in other words NO BREEDING , you are as a person!!! Nicki Minaj, I don't believe that you would even play your " What happened in my card"!! You are successuful now and what ever happened in the past just showed you have overcome it. So, please stop playing that card and start spending your success money on buying some good manners and etiquette!! This will help you match the success and money you have now and stop acting like instant rich person you are!! Money and fame cannot buy breeding unfortunately and that's not in your genes baby!!! Final solution, Try to humble yourself, because KARMA can always sweep that success as easy as you got it! What important is how you deal with fellow human being!!!!!!!! BTW, I used to love your style of music but your terrible attitude IS A MAJOR TURN OFF!!!!!!

    Re: Rose – Sorry Rose! Did not mean to offend you. I'm white and live in the South and I see undercover racism esp online with a lot of things. It's disgusting. I did not even see your comment before I wrote that. It was not directed at you. My apologies.
