Nicki Minaj’s high school doesn’t want her to visit

Despite Nicki Minaj’s success, not everyone is a fan of the singer — including her former high school.

Minaj explained on Twitter that Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School, a New York performing arts school (aka the school from the movie Fame), declined her offer to visit to speak. The principal apparently told the singer something along the lines of “Thanks, but no thanks.”

Minaj and her fans were clearly hurt by the rejection.

In fact, many fans took to Twitter to support the singer.

Not that Minaj could let this get her down for long. Following the rejection, she was off to Paris to perform with Beyoncé, joining the singer and Jay Z during their On the Run tour.

Still, Minaj was clearly affected by the sentiment, especially since she’s previously spoken so highly of the school and the education she received. In a 2013 interview with Teen Vogue, the “Anaconda” singer said, “It was the first time I felt like I really fit in. Everyone there was creative. For once, I didn’t feel like there was something weird about me.”

It seems that after you find success, this school is definitely not all about acceptance if they don’t agree with your performances. No one from Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School has commented on the situation yet.

Do you think the school made a mistake? Or is Nicki Minaj a bad example for the young and impressionable?
