Watch Out, Nicki Minaj's About!
Nicki Minaj may be coming to the UAE! Our local events insider revealed, “Still waiting for Nicki Minaj to announce her Dubai date, but my contacts tell me a deal has been done!” Our sources predict a date in October and we know for sure that Nicki just stopped in Dubai on the way to a gig in the Philippines – a perfect chance to sign contracts, we think!
The reaction in the Twittersphere was mixed, with some fans rejoicing, “Nicki Minaj coming to Dubai in October – yeah, told you, October is the awesome-est month of all!” But the news came as a major concern to others, with one person pleading, “When you visit Dubai, please follow UAE dress code law and UAE decency law, thanks.”
Nicki is known for her garish outfits and diva behaviour. After her appearance at T in the Park festival in Scotland, the performer was slammed for taking her antics – which included demanding the grass around her dressing room be cut a certain length – too far. An onlooker told a British tabloid, “Nicki went off on one about the grass around her area, saying it was far too long for her to walk on. She threw a complete strop, pouting and pointing, and asking someone to get a lawn mower to sort it out!”
The Starships singer was also 50 minutes late for her slot and caused a drama backstage. A festival-goer revealed,“Her security guy just pushed a crew person off the path into the mud so she could walk past.” When Nicki, 29, finally performed – for a meagre 30 minutes – fans allegedly booed her after every song!
Musicians who played at the festival also joined in the major backlash against her on Twitter. “Nicki Minaj has been [totally selfish] to all the hardworking crew backstage. Pathetic,” vented angry singer Frank Turner.
Let’s hope Nicki’s increasingly diva-esque attitude improves before she comes to the UAE or she may loose some fans!
