Nicki Minaj got all dolled up, like literally, she looks like a doll, for her new June/July 2013 cover of TEEN VOGUE.  Check out what the head Barb in charge says about the high school-like music industry, why she has zero f*ks to give about your negative opinions of her, and more inside...

 

"Idol" judge Nicki is glammed up in tutus, tulle, platforms and pink for the new issue of TEEN VOGUE.  And the "High School" rapper is telling us all about why this messy music business is just that--high school.

Check out the highlights from her cover story plus a few inside pics below:

On why the music business is like a high school popularity contest: 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.”

On how she got her tough-girl act from moving around so much as a kid: “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,” she tells Teen Vogue."
 

On ignoring people's negative opinions of her:  “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 for Mother's Day, Nicki couldn't be with her own mom so she treated all the moms on Team Minaj to balloons and flowers:

WANT YOUR OWN AVATAR? GET IT HERE.

The fact that she admits that

The fact that she admits that is stupid on her part.. Your music should not be based off of a popularity contest but based on you talent, skills, and drive for what you are doing. There are many talents the get ignored because they refuse to conform to the big fake T&A the industry wants them to get. She's a prime example,

She is so full of shit. It's

She is so full of shit. It's not about being nice to people because they are hot right now. How about being nice period? There are so many stories of how she treats staff, production crew, etc like crap. Even the idol contestants said how rude she was to them. Seriously? Say what you want about Mariah, JLO and even Beyonce, I know people that have worked with all of them in some capacity and have said how down to earth they are. She sounds so immature for a 30 year old . Can't wait for her 15 mins to be up.

She doesn't want to play

She doesn't want to play high-school games with adults, yet she is an adult on the cover of a teenager's magazine. So she wants to play high-school with teens then I guess lol smh. I hope she wakes up and figures out what/who she is.

Yes, it is like high school and Nikki is participating in the fuckery of it all. She talks negatively and acts catty towards other celebs. Her mouth has spoiled it for me. I wont be supporting her with my dollars.

she looks like a cartoon

she looks like a cartoon character. how evil do you have to be to destroy an entire show, and kill jobs worth hundreds of millions, and destroy the dreams of all the contestants???? i have had evil doers come to my work place and do the same thing. satan is real. u can know the demon possessed by their deeds. stay the heck away from them is what i recommend. lil wayne's problems are likely caused by allowing this monster of a character into his life, and work.
