Nicki Minaj's strained vocal cords can't make it to V Festival...
Nicki Minaj has cancelled her appearance at this weekend’s V Festival due to ‘strained vocal cords’. Sad face.
V Festival reps released the following statement about her not turning up: “Miss Minaj's band and crew have all arrived in the UK ahead of the performance at the festival this weekend, however as the artist herself boarded her flight from New York on Friday 17th August, she felt unwell again."
According to Digital Spy the statement continued, "This is despite having thought she had overcome her vocal cord issues from earlier in the week. Having revisited her doctor she has now been advised to rest for a week, which unfortunately means that she is no longer able to perform at V Festival."
Festival organisers have decided to bump up LMFAO into Nicki’s slot and have wished her a “speedy recovery”.
Nicki had tweeted earlier in the week, "It's official, my voice is GONE!" after finishing a couple of gigs with Drake in New York City. It’s a shame she couldn’t get better in time for V, but the show must go on!
