Nicki Minaj Denied By Own Her High School From Visiting Students Because She Wanted To Film It (EXCLUSIVE)
Nicki Minaj wanted to visit with students on Thursday at her old alma mater, Fiorella H. LaGuardia High School in New York, but the singing star was flat out rejected because she wanted to film it, Gossip Cop has exclusively learned.
On Thursday, she tweeted, “I wanted to go back to my HS and speak to the students but the new principal declined. No need for me to inspire them, I guess. Smh.”
“I guess I’m not good enough,” offered the booty-shaking singer.
She then added, “That school changed my life and I wanted to pay it forward to the students there now. I was really looking forward to it.”
The problem, Gossip Cop is told by the New York City Department of Education, was that she planned on bringing cameras into the school, and that’s a no-no.
A spokesman for the Department of Education says, “Of course alumni are welcome back to our campuses and we love to celebrate their success, providing it does not interrupt the educational process. Alumni visit all the time and address students.”
“However, we do not allow reality TV to be filmed on school property. For documentaries, any visit to a public school must be educational in nature and cannot intrude on instruction,” the spokesman further told us.
Minaj has previously publicly praised her high school, on which the TV show “Fame” was based, noting in a 2013 Teen Vogue interview that all the students there were “so creative, and “For once, I didn’t feel like there was something weird about me.”
