Given her propensity for on-screen lap dances, we’re not sure if Nicki Minaj is the best role model for young girls. But the American Idol judge still managed to land a spot on the front cover of Teen Vogue. And she spent a good portion of her interview dishing on the world of social media. What does Nicki think about Twitter and Facebook?
Nicki Minaj’s Twitter page is frequently updated, so it’s assumed that the celeb either likes the website or sees it as a necessity for success in show business. Either way, Nicki is very interested in social media and its impact both on the individual celebrity and society as a whole. She discussed such issues at length during a recent interview with Teen Vogue, explaining that, once in a while, it’s valuable to back off from the tweeting and status updates. “If you’re having a problem, there’s nothing wrong with deleting your social media.”
Not only is deleting social media okay in Nicki’s eyes, it’s sometimes a necessity. This is especially the case for anyone who has been the victim of online bullying. Nicki admits to having looked at the bad press and nasty comments from time to time, but decided that it really was not a good idea for preserving her mental health. “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.”
Do you think Nicki Minaj deserves all the online negativity she’s attracted in the past few months? Leave a comment and let us know!
