Nicki Minaj fans erupt in "Cardi B" chants after the rapper cancels gig
11 March 2019, 17:12
The "Barbie Tingz" rapper is currently on "The Nicki Wrld Tour" with supporting act Juice Wrld and had already cancelled a planned show in Bratislava, Slovakia, last month. She didn't let her fans know the Bordeaux concert wasn't going ahead until they were already in the arena and understandably they were absolutely fuming.
"Cardi B! Cardi B! Cardi B," the crowd began chanting in support of her rap rival. As pretty much everyone knows, despite collaborating on "Motorsport" together, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B spent the majority of 2018 beefing. It resulted in a huge brawl at New York Fashion Week, where Cardi ended up throwing her shoe at Nicki.
Later, Nicki headed on social media to apologise to her hurt fans and explain why she'd cancelled the concert. "You guys, it's not in my best interest not to perform and lose money, and aggravate my fans," she began. "I love performing for my fans.
"I'm more excited than you are before the show. These two cities that had technical issues, were cities I'd never been to before. We tried to add them but they just didn't have the power in the building to facilitate my show.
"And they didn't tell us until three hours before the show as opposed to when we did soundcheck, they said it was fine."
She added: "But anyway every artist, every artist, has technical difficulties and has to cancel shows. I want to tell you guys that I love you dearly and I really hope to make it up to you very soon.
Nick Minaj and Juice WRLD's are set to perform at The O2 Arena in London tonight. Let's just hope they have a backup generator…
