Yesterday, footage spread of a young Nicki Minaj giving her all in a scene from one of her high school acting classes. While die-hard fans loved being able to see Nicki way back when, there were others who felt the need to not only criticize her acting skills but her very slim frame, as she clearly didn’t have the bust, hips or backside that she now possesses.

Nicki has since responded to the hate she received for the video, saying there will always be negative people trying to steal your joy while also implying that the slander has truly hurt her feelings, but because she’s a celebrity with millions in the bank, no one cares.
