Nicki Minaj arrives at Heathrow Airport in a hoodie and oversized sunglasses, while her fans are happy to even get a glimpse of their favorite celebrity. The singer is wearing a lacey ballerina dress on the cover of Teen Vogue, the June/July 2013 issue. The American Idol judge told the mag more about the music business: “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.” The singer also mentions that she stopped reading any nasty comments she would get on social media, and she recommends it to anyone who’s been taunted online. Minaj herself had a rough childhood: 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 says in the interview.
