Nicki Minaj Bails on Concert After Host Calls Her Music “Bulls**t” (VIDEO)
Nicki Minaj bailed her on her highly-promoted Summer Jam performance on Sunday after one of the event’s emcees dissed her earlier in the show.
Minaj was scheduled to headline Hot 97’s annual event in New Jersey, even hyping up her appearance on Twitter hours before she was slated to take the stage.
That was until Hot 97 host Peter Rosenberg told the crowd, “I know there’s some chicks here waiting to sing ‘Starships’ later, I’m not talking to y’all right now. F**k that bulls**t. I’m here to talk about real hip-hop s**t.”
When Lil Wayne — the head of Minaj’s Young Money label — heard of Rosenberg’s diss, he pulled the plug.
“Wow. U ni**az just f**ked up history. But the President has spoken,” Minaj tweeted after the decision was made to back out of the performance.
Minaj, who hinted that she had quite the show planned, added, “I go above and beyond for my fans. But won’t ever go against wayne’s word. What he says, goes.”
She also sent out thanks to “the staff @ philly & boston summer jams for treating their guests w/respect! Had a blast.”
Other Young Money artists, including DJ Khaled and Busta Rhymes, who were also slated to appear, similarly bailed on their performances.
