Was Nicki Minaj Right to Pull Out of Headlining Gig?

Nicki Minaj was all ready to headline at Hot 97's Summer Jam festival in New Jersey on Sunday until host Peter Rosenberg went on stage at the pre-show and said her single "Starships" isn't real hip hop. Within minutes, Lil Wayne announced he was pulling Minaj from the show. Minaj quickly confirmed on Twitter, saying she "won't ever go against Wayne's word."

Since the incident, Rosenberg has addressed the incident but refuses to apologize. The next day, he said on Hot 97, "I'm absolutely not apologizing ... I've been saying this for six months. I'm not going to change my stance because I'm at Summer Jam ... I'm disappointed that she felt like she couldn't get on stage. That was surprising to me. What she should have done was played the game. This is hip hop. She should have gone on that stage and made a movie." Do you think it was right for Nicki Minaj to pull out of the gig?

    Oops, other people have their own opinion. Our bad nicki, for the record, statships ISN'T hiphop. But I thought that maybe your FANS opinions would matter, seeming as THEY were the ones who paid good money to see that big fake ass. She no longer has my resepct after abandoning her fans because of what ONE person said. Shame on lil Wayne too.

    I would've voted 'Yes' if I was at the event, but I can respect she doesn't want to go against Waynes word from this point of view.

    One, her music is pathetic and is actually a discrace to the whole inudstry. Two, that is very mature of her to listen to her superiors and leave the festival.

    She truly is an idiot. She also needs to think about what she says before she opens that big yap of hers. No offense but she is a talent-LESS attention whore who is so fake she makes the plastic barbies at the dollar store look real.

    Minaj is a temporary "Star", who lacks a lot of talent and cannot Dance. You're gonna listen to Lil' Wyane? Rappers are NOT musicians. Minaj should have stuck to the gig and earned her money for HER FANS which in essence are her bosses, the people who buy her music, NOT Lil' Wayne! Hip Hop is horrid and its now music for the Mediocres of the World, not an Artform. Minaj will rue the day.

    Hate to break it to you, honey, but the fathers of hip hop didn't wake up one morning and say, "Let's make a new artform called hip hop." You've got a lot of nerve to say rappers aren't musicians. And believe it or not, "Mediocres of the World" aren't the only people who listen to this "horrid" music.

    I hate country music. And I hate classical music. And this pop music isn't all that hot either nowadays. I listen to hip hop and r&b, and I don't think of myself as mediocre. Did you think before you wrote that comment? Because it was pretty rude.

    Basically she disappointed her fans. People are always going to talk and say things you don't agree with but she should know her fans are what make her and she shouldn't turn her back on them.

    Because of one person she didn't perform for her fans.... Thers are many people's out there who think starships is a pop record... And most of the songs on PF:RR are too Pop. Unprofessional move from her and Lil Wayne to leave fans.

    THANKS ROSENBERG! Somebody finally speaking up to this wannabe disgrace to female rap and to the whole genre in general. Starships is NOT hip hop-it is a dance track aimed at the clappy trends that sell well on iTunes.

    I'm only saying she should have pulled out because I think by doing so she is doing the whole Festival a massssivvvvvvvee favour. She is also ripping off her fans-few as they are, now. What an idiot. She is not a hip hop artist.
    I'm glad a white guy has been 'brave'-or maybe sane enough to point this out, as MTV are so ignorant they seem to be happy classing every coloured act as hip hop.

    First of all, Lil Wayne pulled her out of the festival because he was so butt hurt by REAL TALK. She should have protested and been loyal to her fans not the worst rapper of our generation. We need more people like Rosenberg though, everyone in show business is so damn complacent and thats why kids think Nicki Minaj is hip hop.

    I'm pretty sure all tickets are sold without any guarantee that the show will happen. Not 100% positive, but it sure seems that way. she didn't have to go out there if she didn't want to regardless of the circumstance.

    I'm more so undecided. I think she should have tried to prove him wrong, but I understand if she wouldn't go against Lil Wayne, Lil Wayne is why she is where she is.

    I wonder what a white chick would look like with a black girls afro from the 70's?

    Probably as stupid as Nicki Minaj looks with blonde straight Barbie hair.

    She has a right to decide where and when she performs. Rosenberg is just butt hurt because him being an ass cost him money and instead of admitting it he projects the blame onto Nicki.

    First, I am not a fan of hers and I don't know what any of her music sound like except what I saw of her at the half time show during the SuperBowl. On that note, it shouldn't be about what was said....she should have honored what she was supposed to do and not disappoint her fans. She showed how unprofessional she is. Even though it was Lil Wayne's decision to not have her perform, she should have still performed.

    Just cause of someone's opinion? And to be honest, that opinion is facts cause Starships isn't a hip-hop song, it's a pop/techno song. I'm disappointed in you wifey. smh

    It didn't prove anything about her music. It didn't change anybody's opinion. And it didn't hurt Peter Rosenberg. It just gave him free publicity.

    Let's see. Who did it hurt?... That's right her fans that were expecting a show. Too bad they obviously don't matter. Maybe they will take their money elsewhere and Nicki Minaj will eventually get paid back for abandoning them.
