Lil Wayne CANCELLED Nicki Minaj‘s performance! Sources are saying it’s because the station’s host Peter Rosenberg said a disrespectful diss about her “Starships” track.
“Wow. U ni–az just !!ed up history. But the President has spoken. #YMCMB,” she wrote after Wayne announced they they’d be pulling out of the show. “I go above and beyond for my fans. But won’t ever go against wayne’s word. What he says, goes. Had a HELL of a !!ing lineup. But we won’t b disrespected.”
Nicki proceeded to retweet many of her fans who reassured her that Wayne had her beast interests at heart. StyledFamous wrote: “SMH. @Hot97 got it twisted. How you book @NICKIMINAJ as your headliner and then allow their DJs to disrespect,” and @KaitlynMorris added, “Lawd it’s not about WHAT he said, u don’t invite some1 to perform, use their name to sell then publicly disrespect.”
*UPDATE* Nas & Lauryn Hill were set to be part of Nicki Minaj’s surprise guest lineup. And since Nicki pulled out at the command of Lil Wayne, Nas & Lauryn performed “If I Ruled The World” anyway:
