Nicki Minaj was in Balado, UK yesterday to perform for T In The Park. The female rapper managed to turned off the audience and some performers with her attitude, and let’s just say the tea is being spilled.
Apparently, Nicki was 55 minutes late to her set due to her flight being delayed. This caused the crowd to become very anxious and frustrated, and when Nicki finally arrived she was booed during her entire performance.
Past fashionable and fifty-five minutes late, the rap star ran onto the stage with no introduction, and a mega-sized bridge centre-stage lit up, allowing her team of BacoFoil-clad dancers to be seen writhing all over it.
Backed by rhythmic sub bass, a male MC, and aggressively rapping into a baby pink microphone, the 29-year-old and Roman’s Revengesurprised the crowd- the enigma had arrived, but there was no hello or explanation.
Babbling with her booty in the air, she got cheers from the front of the stage and boos from the back, having made enemies from her unexplained late arrival-now was the turn of the crowd for their own revenge.
Using an olive branch of chart hits to win them back round, perpetual anthems, Starships and Pound The Alarm, had the crowd using all remaining energy reserves, but the booing was still obvious as each track faded.
The hurried set didn’t show much rhythm, or fluidity, or finesse, or come to think of it…talent. Miss Minaj showed none of the quirks of her many interviews and simply came across as bratty.
With pre-rehearsed lines and no genuine crowd interaction, twenty-five minutes after it all began, she jogged back off of the stage, and the crowd were left wondering, ‘Did that actually happen?’
T in the Park have released a statement to confirm that unfortunately Miss Minaj’s flight was delayed, leading to her late arrival and short set. What the statement didn’t explain, was why she was so damn awful.
UK singer, Frank Turner, and partner were also performing during T In The Park and had tweeted rather disparaging descriptions of Nicki and crew’s behavior. This caused the Barbs to drag in a frenzy, but no one is afraid of them.
Well. What do you think about all of this?
