Minaj cancels over Starships gibe

AT BEST, it's counterintuitive to insult your headliner right before she takes the stage, and probably just not a good idea. Especially if it's Nicki Minaj.

The rapper was set to headline Hot 97's Summer Jam festival in East Rutherford, New Jersey, but pulled out shortly before her set.

Minaj nixed her performance at the festival, one of only a few annual hip-hop events of its size, following disparaging remarks from Hot 97 personality Peter Rosenberg, who also hosts MTV's Hip-Hop Squares.

Rosenberg, obviously not a fan of Minaj's club-friendly, RedOne-produced jingle, Starships, told the crowd that the radio station was "all about that real hip-hop".

"I know there are some chicks in here waiting to sing along with Starships later," he chided. "I'm not talking to y'all right now." He then quickly dismissed the song.
