Love her or hate her, Nicki Minaj has always repped LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, the high school she graduated from. She said it was her education that made her the person she is today. LaGuardia, if you’re not aware, is the high school that Fame was based on. And needless to say, the alumni list from that school is something like a seating arrangement chart from an Award show. It’s hard to keep track of the notable people who walked its hallways.
Nicki Minaj wanted to give back to her high school by speaking to students, but she says the current principal turned her down.
“I wanted to go back to my HS and speak to the students but the new principal declined,” Nicki wrote on Twitter on Thursday (September 11). “No need for me to inspire them, I guess.”
One has to wonder why the current principal, Lisa Mars, turned down Minaj’s request to speak? Maybe she thought Minaj is too risqué? As one of the school’s must popular graduates, you’d think (lyrical content aside) Minaj’s music industry success is something the teens there would enjoy hearing about. Especially since most of them have aspirations of being singers, dancers and actors.
Clutchettes, do you think Minaj should be allowed to speak at her former high school?
