Nicki Minaj responds to gig cancellation criticism on Twitter
Nicki Minaj has angrily responded to criticism levelled at her after she cancelled three performances in the UK and Ireland.
As previously reported, the 'Beez In The Trap' star was forced to pull two slots at the weekend's V Festival (August 18/19) and a show in Dublin (August 21) after losing her voice.
Minaj picked up the vocal problems after she ignored advice from a doctor and performed two sets in one day in New York last week (August 14).
This seemingly angered some fans and prompted Minaj to today (August 21) take to Twitter to post an expletive filled rant in response. She said:
"I am so thankful to my true fans who understand WHY I couldn't play#VFestival & WHY I can't play Dublin. Absolutely gutted. However, if u have anything negative to say to me, please#EatSh*tAndDie - I am human."
Minaj continued: "I was in jeopardy of losing my voice entirely and needing surgery on my vocal chord. If u can't understand that, your mother's a WH*RE!!!! I will NOT let you people make me feel horrible for a f*cking HEALTH issue! That's what got me in this mess! I shldve listened 2 the doctor! Like people are hitting me telling me I shldve mimed. No! Then you woulda made a f*cking STORY out of that too! #killyaf*ckingself. My beloved United Kingdom, u know how much I f*cking love u! Ireland, I truly appreciate you. Barbz, thnku for the well wishes."
