[Video] Nicki Minaj Says She Regrets Not Performing At Summer Jam, Says She Doesn’t Respect Rosenberg’s Resume
If you’re a hip hop head and/or a fan of Hot 97’s annual ‘Summer Jam‘ concert, then you don’t even need a backstory surrounding this beef. The quick and dirty is that last year, Nicki Minaj was scheduled to perform and basically headline the concert. A few hours before she came on, Hot 97 radio personality Peter Rosenberg, made a comment to concert goers that Nicki’s song, Starships, wasn’t real hip hop (click here to watch the clip). Word got back to Nicki’s camp and she, along with all of Young Money pulled out of the show. Back and forth went down and this week, for the first time both Nicki and Rosenberg talked the entire thing out. Peep a few excerpts.
Overall, how she feels about the entire Summer Jam beef:
It’s cool. I can’t even act like I care anymore. But I appreciate you’ll having me.
Why she regrets on performing, regardless of Rosenberg’s comments:
This is the thing, in hindsight, I should’ve just did the show because I’ve never allowed anyone to make me, let my fans down. And even if it wasn’t a Nicki Minaj fan, just a fan in general. I should’ve just came out, because it’s my hometown. They shouldn’t have been brought into whatever we were going through. They had nothing to do with that. When I thought abou it, a whole bunch off people were punished.
Why she didn’t respect Rosenberg giving his opinion:
You know what? I get it, that’s what you do. To me, I just don’t know your resume. I never found you funny. I never found you smart. I just found you annoying.
