After the whole Hot 97’s Summer Jam ordeal last weekend, Nicki Minaj plans on making up her cancelled set by performing a free concert in New York. This morning, the Young Money rapstress told Power 105 FM’s Breakfast Club that she is going to move forward with her efforts to please fans that were disappointed with her festival absence.
“It’s still in the works, but it’s definitely gonna happen,” Minaj said about the free concert. “We gonna make it work.”
“This was actually Wayne’s suggestion. Wayne was like ‘Yo Nick, we can do our own show for the people. You don’t have to feel bad.’ Obviously, I felt bad. I don’t want to let my fans down period,” she said. “We’re going to have fun.”
After all of this, Peter Rosenberg, the Hot 97 DJ whose comments led to Minaj and all other Young Money acts to pull out from the festival, refused to apologize.
“Hey, I went out there, I was hosting, I was in the zone of doing real hip-hop. I just said what came to mind and everyone made a big deal about it…Now the Barbz are all hitting me and asking me to apologize. There’s a get-me-to-apoligize movement, to which I can say…I’m absolutely not apologizing because I didn’t do anything wrong,” Rosenberg said.
Minaj denied the reports that she vowed to never perform at Summer Jam again, but she wants Rosenberg to apologize for his comments.
Her free show is planned to happen sometime this summer. Stay tuned for more details as they trickle in.
