Nicki Minaj pulls out of music fest
London: Rapper Nicki Minaj has cancelled her plans to perform at British music festival due to illness.
The 29-year-old was set to take to the stage at Britain`s V Festival this weekend but has pulled out of the show after she fell ill boarding a flight from New York Friday, reports a website.
"Due to on-going vocal issues, Nicki Minaj is unable to play this year`s V Festival... Miss Minaj`s band and crew have all arrived in the U.K. ahead of the performance at the festival this weekend, however as the artist herself boarded her flight from New York on Friday Aug 17, she felt unwell again," said a spokesperson.
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. V Festival organisers wish her a speedy recovery," the spokesperson added.
