Nicki Minaj - Nicki Minaj Explains Summer Jam Axe

Nicki Minaj has reached out to fans to explain why she refused to take the stage at a hip-hop festival in New Jersey on Sunday (03Jun12), revealing it was her label boss Lil Wayne's decision to axe the gig and she didn't want to "go against" his word.
The rapper was due to headline Hot 97's Summer Jam at the MetLife Stadium at the weekend and had teased fans via Twitter.com earlier in the day about her big plans for the performance.
She tweeted, "History will be made @ Hot97 Summer Jam tonight. I really hope you're there to witness it."
But Minaj pulled out of the appearance shortly before she was scheduled to perform after Hot 97 radio presenter Peter Rosenberg slated her hit song Starships on stage, telling the crowd, "I know there are some chicks here waiting to sing Starships later, I'm not talking to y'all right now, f**k that bulls**t. Bulls**t! I'm here to talk about real hip-hop s**t."
The comments infuriated Young Money Entertainment boss Lil Wayne and he took to Twitter to announce, "Young Money ain't (sic) doing summer jam."
Minaj admits she was stunned by the bold move, but she stands by her mentor because they will not tolerate rude behaviour.
In a series of tweets, she wrote, "Wow. U n**gaz (sic) just f**ked up history. But the President has spoken. (Summer Jam) Had a Hell of a f**king lineup. But we won't b (sic) disrespected... I go above and beyond for my fans. But won't ever go against wayne's word. What he says, goes."
