Nicki Minaj Talks To Teen Vogue About Haters

(Radio.com) Nicki Minaj may be a star now, but she remembers life when things were a little different. In the June/July issue of Teen Vogue, Minaj opens up about her childhood and how she dealt with bullies.

"I would never want to be a teenager ever again," she said. "You know, adults feel like teens don't have problems. I know firsthand that teenagers aren't always the nicest people. They can be cruel and tough, and they can isolate you."

Minaj explained the difficulties she faced as a child when her family frequently picked up and moved. "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," she recalled. "I dreaded it. I had butterflies in my stomach each time: 'Are people going to like or hate me? Will they talk about me?'"

Despite it all, she grew thick skin and her confidence never wavered. "I encountered jealous girls a lot—it wasn't like I had nice clothes, so they couldn't be envious of that, but they were like, 'You shouldn't be that confident,'" she said.

"I let people know I wasn't going to be pushed around. What it came down to is that the bullies wanted me to bow down to them. And I just wouldn't." more on this story
