Nicki Minaj recently revealed that she believes the music industry is just like high school, being a popularity contest that she refuses to participate in.

"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," she said.

Nicki also said she had to change schools a lot as a kid, and it always made her nervous.

"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," she said.

She credited the Internet with starting her career, because if it weren't for MySpace, she might not be who she is today.

"My journey to who I am today began on MySpace. I love getting real opinions from people. 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 can't give negativity power. I tell teens, if you're having a problem, there's nothing wrong with deleting your social media."
