The songstress flaunts her flirty sense of style and admits that the music business is ‘like one big popularity contest.’

American Idol judge Nicki Minaj looks like a high school cheerleader on the cover of Teen Vogue, where the 30-year-old pop star flaunts her signature sense of style in a slew of tutus, crop tops, and wedges. Inside, she opens up about her rough childhood and how she she survives in the music business.

Nicki Minaj On 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.”

Nicki Minaj On Her 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.”

Nicki Minaj & Social Media:

“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.”
