Nicki Minaj models for the June/July issue of Teen Vogue.
The first lady of YMCMB decided to cover the June/July issue of Teen Vogue and in her interview with the magazine, she talked about the music industry, her childhood, and dealing with negative people. In the spread, you'll see Nicki talk about the following,
On the music biz: âPeople treat this business like itâsÂ high school. It can absolutely feel like one big popularity contest, and you know what? I canât be bothered. I canât allow myself to play ridiculous games with grown adults in the industry. I canât be nice to someone just because theyâre hot right now. I canât do it.â
On her rough childhood:Â âEvery time my parents fought, my mother would have us move and I would have to go to a newschool, which meant Iâd have to face the task of making newfriends. I dreaded it. I had butterflies in my stomach each time: Are people going to like or hate me? â¦ Sometimes thereâd be a fight, sometimes not. I let people know I wasnât going to be pushed around.â
On social media:Â âI used to read the bad things people said about me. Then I asked myself, âWhy am IÂ readingÂ that when I have millions of people saying great things?â You cannot give negativity power. I tell teens, if youâre having a problem, thereâs nothing wrong with deleting your social media. If people keep taunting you and you keepÂ readingÂ it, itâs poison.â
