nicki minaj*Look who’s keeping it real.

Nicki Minaj shared her interpretation of the entertainment industry with Teen Vogue recently, comparing it to high school.

“People treat this business like it’s high school,” she said. “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.”

She’s the one to talk, right!

Nicki has all the drama in the world with her fellow industry peers, including Lil’ Kim and Mariah Carey.

Totally high school.

Something the underage readers may be able to take from the conversation is the fact that Nicki knows how to dust her shoulders off and get past the criticism.

“I used to read the bad things people said about me,” said Minaj. “Then I asked myself, ‘Why am I reading that when I have millions of people saying great things?’ You cannot give negativity power.”
