Nicki Minaj wrote on Twitter, “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…”
Well, the school wasted no time and responded to the accusations. Here’s the statement:
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.
