Nicki Minaj in Teen Vogue

Nicki Minaj took time out from trash talking fellow “American Idol” judge Mariah Carey, in order to pose for the June/July 2013 issue of Teen Vogue.

The rapper admitted, “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.”

Minaj also spoke about growing up. “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.”
