 Nicki Minaj speaks onstage at the MTV EMA's 2014 at The Hydro on November 9, 2014 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Nicki Minaj has a message for Jimmy Fallon's audience: She probably was your waitress at one point.

Minaj stopped by the Tonight Show Tuesday night and talked with Fallon about her myriad of high school jobs. She talked about how that motivated her to brush up on her performing skills, because she wanted to follow her dream and "get out of there before it was too late."

Fallon also shared an old high school picture of Minaj -- a.k.a Onika -- and Minaj was quite embarrassed. She shouldn't be: If you're in a position where Beyonce is sharing old photos of you, you're doing just fine.
