Nicki Minaj has never been shy about talking about her hard childhood and how hard it has been but now she has spoke out in Teen Vogue magazine!
The singer/ rapper has talked about the hard times during her childhood, especially when her parents argued, and also how she deals with al the haters.
The Pound The Alarm singer said:
“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: Are people going to like or hate me? … Sometimes there’d be a fight, sometimes not. I let people know I wasn’t going to be pushed around. 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.”
“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 cannot give negativity power. I tell teens, if you’re having a problem, there’s nothing wrong with deleting your social media. If people keep taunting you and you keep reading it, it’s poison.”
Nicki no longer talk’s to her dad due to what he did to her and her mother growing up but it show how much her life has changed since she found fame.
You would think that how famous Adele is her her family would treat her differently to all the other members of the family but according to Adele’s aunt Anita Adkins they don’t.
This is what Anita had to say about the super star:
“She doesn’t get any special treatment — of course not. Why would she? There’s plenty of nieces, nephews and grandchildren in this family so no one gets any special treatment, I can tell you. They’re all treated the same.
Adele comes round and she’s still got to go and make her nan a cup of tea, I’m afraid.”
Also with all the fame that Adele has you would think that it would go to hear head but her aunt has confirmed that that is not the case:
“She hasn’t changed with her success, she is who she is. What you see is what you get, the package.
Apart from a few expensive ballgowns, why would she change because she’s earning £41,000 a day?
She’s quite thrifty with her money, she knows not to throw it around. She’s not a waster, she wasn’t brought up to waste.”
Is One Direction‘s Zayn Malik leaving the band all because of him cheating on his girlfriend Perry Edwards with a stripper??
A insider has reported:
“There is growing concern among the bosses that Zayn is on the brink at the moment…He feels that the last six months have been his toughest in the band yet.
Even before the cheating scandal, Zayn was steering clear of nights out with his bandmates and sometimes would skip media events. He has been quite low at several points when being away for key family celebrations. But his pals have cheered him up. People forget he is the shyest member. Naturally, he likes the adoration and his day job, but he is battling to cope with the pressure which comes with it.
Zayn feels that being caught out with Courtney has made the band look bad, and is still worried about how bosses will react in the long run.”
Simon Cowell would go mad if he left the band so we can just imagine his face.
But the boy band’s rep has said that he is NOT leaving:
“It’s completely untrue, Zayn isn’t leaving the band.”
With all the success that One Direction have had it’s really hard to imagine One Direction fading out but some people who think that will are the Spice Girls.
Talking recently to Heat magazine Spice Girls member Mel C gave some words of wisdom to the boys as she said:
“They seem to be breaking America, which we were lucky enough to do. My advice would be just enjoy it, because so often with success like that, it’s over so quickly … With pop bands, [fame] is often so short-lived that you have to take every opportunity that you can, and it is hard.”
“I would say that you have to rest as much as you can. I think it’s harder for boys, as well, but there’s lots of evidence that they like a bit of a party. There’s no time for hangovers, really. It can be difficult, but I have no sympathy.”
