Nicki Minaj has caused headaches for another concert promoter, and this time, Richard Branson and his V Festival crew are on the receiving end.
Minaj was forced to cancel her appearances at V Festival at Highlands Park in London as she had suffered “strained vocal chords”, according to her representative.
“Despite doctor’s orders, she performed on a bruised vocal chord in New York on August 14. As a result, the chord has gotten worse. After her most recent x-ray, the doctor advises she rest her voice for a few more days.”
It’s not the first time Minaj has bailed out on an appearance right before it was scheduled to happen: in June, she pulled out of New York radio station Hot 97’s Summer Jam concert, due to remarks made about her by one of the station’s announcers.
It’s not the first drama V Festival organisers have faced this year: Frank Ocean recently pulled the pin on his spot at the festival along with a string of other European dates at the beginning of this week.
