Minaj cancels UK festival show due to vocal chords
NEW YORK – Nicki Minaj has cancelled her appearance at this weekend’s V Festival in the United Kingdom because of damage to her vocal cords.
Her representative said in an email that Minaj will have to back out of her shows on Saturday and Sunday because of “strained vocal chords.”
Minaj performed a free concert in New York City on Wednesday, though she had been advised by her doctor to rest.
Her representative now said her voice was “worse,” and that recent X-rays showed that the singer-rapper must “rest her voice for a few days.”
The two-day V Festival also features David Guetta, The Killers, LMFAO and The Stone Roses.
Minaj performed for more than two hours at her New York show. It featured Drake, Lil Wayne and Foxy Brown
