Nicki Minaj loves the kids — so much so that she wanted to pay a visit to her old high school and speak to the students.
Unfortunately for Nicki, she wasn’t allowed. She took to social media to vent her frustrations.
I wanted to go back to my HS and speak to the students but the principal declined. That school change my life and I wanted to pay it forward to the students there now. I was really looking forward to it. I guess I’m not good enough.
As soon as Nicki made her feelings known, her loyal Barbz went on a rampage sending the school emails and jamming their phone lines with complaints.
The uproar caused the school district to issue the following statement in a letter to parents:
September 11, 2014
Dear LaGuardia Community,
It has been brought to our attention that Nicki Minaj is attempting to generate publicity for herself by posting negative information about our principal, Dr. Lisa Mars, and LaGuardia Arts High School.
The fact is that Ms. Minaj was told by the NYC Department of Education (DOE) that she would not be allowed to enter the school with a television crew. The DOE has policies in place to protect the privacy and security of all its students. I’m sure we all appreciate the strict enforcement of these policies with regard to the safety of our children.
Nicki Minaj left out the part about wanting to film the ordeal. If that’s the case, we understand why the school decided against it.
Do you think the school should have let Nicki talk to the students on camera?
