Nicki Minaj loses voice after performing against doctor's orders

Nicki Minaj has lost her voice after performing live only days after being told to rest her voice.

As previously reported, the 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded' star previously told fans on Twitter that doctors had told her to rest her voice for two weeks due to the effects of extensive touring.

However, the singer performed twice on Tuesday (August 14) in New York - for the Today Show in the morning and again later at night for a free Pepsi concert.

Minaj, who has festival dates planned at the UK's V Festival this weekend (August 18/19), confirmed on Twitter yesterday (August 15) that she has now lost her voice after keeping her promise to play the free gigs. She tweeted:

"And barbz its official, my voice is GONE!!!! I swear it held up just to spk to u guys last nite! Mind over matter. The mind is so powerful. It was all worth it for what I experienced w/u guys last night tho. Wouldn't change a thing."

Replying to a fan who asked what her doctor had said to her, Minaj replied:

"U don't wanna know. U guys r gna be dramatic :p."
