Nicki Minaj Warns Barbz To Keep ‘Dat Ass’ In School On ‘Pills N Potions’ Release Day

Eager Barbz are threatening to play hookey on Wednesday!

Nicki Minaj wants you to hear her new single “Pills n Potions” when it drops on Wednesday morning, but she doesn’t want you to miss school for it! The YMCMB rapper hit Twitter to let fans know they could get a first listen between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. tomorrow (May 21), but unfortunately, that time conflicts with when a lot of Barbz are in class.

One fan complained:


And Ms. Minaj firmly replied:


Another not-quite-as-scholarly follower had a different response to the single release news:


To which the ‘Superbass’ rapper replied:


And then one of Nicki’s fans took it a step further, saying they were not going to school at all.

That tweet was too much for Minaj to bear:


It’s not too hard to see why Nicki expressed herself with those dramatic emojis though. She graduated from the prestigious art and performing arts school, Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School, in New York City where, “for once, I didn’t feel like there was something weird about me,” she revealed in a Teen Vogue interview last year.

Minaj really liked one fan’s idea on to get more of her peers to listen to “Pills n Potions””


Looseleaf, markers and hashtags. Genius. Staying in school keeps you smart right, Nicki?

When she's not behind her desk at MTV News, you'll probably find her kicking and punching an imaginary arch nemesis at the gym or dancing and shopping for carrots in the aisles of her local supermarket.
