Nicki Minaj called up The Breakfast Club to speak about her absence at this year’s Summer Jam and the special guests she intended on bringing out.
“We had an amazing, amazing show and that was the only disappointing thing. You want to know what the funny thing is? After all this has been said and done, I wasn’t going to [perform] “Starships” and I think people know that. I mean, I’m way smarter than that and I know what people wanted to see. I think it was just someone trying to be sarcastic but like you said, like I said, like everyone else, every other artist said, the timing was in bad taste and everybody makes mistakes but you got to own your mistake and that’s the problem. When you don’t own it, then people feel like, Ooo ok, well you feel like you can do this in the future and get away with it, that’s a problem.”
