Illness Forces Nicki Minaj To Cancel V Festival Appearance; Doctors Order Rest

(AllHipHop News) Young Money rapper Nicki Minaj has canceled a headlining slot at the V Festival this weekend.

The rapper was supposed to perform at Weston Park in the UK today (August 18), but canceled the appearance after she fell ill, while boarding a flight to the United Kingdom yesterday (August 17).

A spokesperson said that Nicki Minaj’s entourage had arrived in the UK, but the rapper was too sick to board her flight for the performance.

“As the artist herself boarded her flight from New York on Friday, she felt unwell again. This is despite having thought she had overcome her vocal cord issues from earlier in the week,” a V Festival representative said in a statement.

Nicki Minaj has been ordered to rest for at least a week, in order to recover.

Other acts still performing at the V Festival this weekend includes The Killers, The Ting Tings, Tinie Tempah, LMFAO, Rita Ora, Childish Gambino, Nneka and dozens of others.
