Nicki Minaj to Perform Free Make-Up Concert on Aug. 14 for Summer Jam ‘No-Show’
Those Barbz who were sadly disappointed when Nicki Minaj abruptly backed out of performing at Hot 97’s Summer Jam concert in June can now get a chance to see her … for free! The ‘Starships’ rapper will perform a complimentary show on Aug. 14 at a secret location in New York.
According to Minaj’s My Pink Friday website, the first 1,500 people who line up at the secret venue tentatively at noon will be guaranteed a bracelet for entrance to the event. But fans must first sign up with their correct e-mail address and wait for them to send you the info of the secret show. Only one ticket per person, per e-mail.
If you’re unable to get a ticket don’t fret because the show will be broadcast live online via Pepsi.com. Minaj’s free concert is in addition to her already-scheduled ‘Today Show’ morning performance at Rockerfella Plaza, so Aug. 14 is unofficially going to be Nicki Minaj Day.
This is wonderful news for the Barbz who were upset after Minaj canceled her Summer Jam performance at the behest of her boss Lil Wayne after Hot 97 radio DJ Peter Rosenberg called her chart-topping song ‘Starships’ “bulls—.” Afterward, a brouhaha ensued with Minaj lashing out at the radio station on Funkmaster Flex’s radio show.
As for Minaj’s free concert, it’s unclear if Peter Rosenberg will host the event — we’re only kidding. But wouldn’t it be cool if Rosenberg extended an olive branch and make peace with the Harajuku Barbie at the show?
Nah, it will never happen.
