Nicki Minaj Denies Canceling Tour, Threatens Outlet w/ “CockSuckaOfTheDay” Award & Instructs Fans To Contact Journalist
Nicki Minaj is clarifying multiple reports stating that her tour with Future has been canceled. Today, she posted a lengthy social media message stating that the tour was not canceled, but rescheduled, as she didn’t have enough time to prepare for the tour. She also warned that the media outlet that posted the particular story that she shared on her IG, was in the running to receive the ‘Cock Sucka Of The Day’. She instructed her die-hard fan base to also contact the writer. See her complete message below.
You are now in the running for #CockSuckaOfTheDay award on #QueenRadio this Thursday. Barbz get me the name of this writer then hit them & tell them this is one black woman they will not bully into a corner by FRAUDULENT SHAMING TACTICS.
So to clarify; because I realize common sense is far from common… I haven’t CANCELLED anything. I reversed the order of the US & EUROPEAN LEGS of my tour. This is for obvious reasons to anyone with a brain. My album was originally going to drop in June which would’ve given me 3 months of tour rehearsal. However, I was still writing & recording up to last week. We are all grown right? We can all do math right? Or will they just pretend to not have basic sense so that they can board the Nicki Hate train & get some clicks? I can’t rehearse 4 WEEKS for a tour I originally planned on rehearsing 3 months for. I give my fans QUALITY. I write & co produce my own music. Therefore, I can’t rehearse while I’m WRITING & RECORDING my album. My true fans understand & know that I will deliver an extraordinary US TOUR which begins in MAY just like I delivered an extraordinary album entitled #Queen. My European fans get the SAME EXACT DATES they’ve always had. Australian fans SAME EXACT DATES they had. Cancelled what? Where?
The narrative they are trying to create is disgusting. But I must say, I’m enjoying this. I love bringing some excitement to this shit. I love having the balls others only dream about. Wait, who’s been dreaming about balls? ? There’s another publication I’m giving CSOTD award to. I won’t tell you who. It’s a surprise ? Shout out to my fans around the world. I love you guys so much for holding me down. I’m working on a M&G experience for the tour & will update you ASAP.
As previously reported, North American leg of Nicki Minaj and Future’s NickiHndrxxx Tour was scheduled to kick off in Baltimore in September, but has been scrapped. The pair are keeping their European tour dates. However, the public is being fed several conflicting pieces of information. According to some reports, the cancellation is reportedly due to scheduling conflicts with Future, and Nicki’s desire to do more with her show content. The press release reads:
“[Nicki] has decided to reevaluate elements of production on the NickiHndrxx Tour…and to contribute more time to rehearsal ahead of the tour’s launch to make certain her fans get the absolute best quality show that they deserve.”
Nicki took to Twitter to personally address her kingdom of fans, adding that delaying the release date of her album, “Queen,” affected how she rehearsed.
Twitter user @StayOnFleek offered his support of the Queen:
“We love you and we completely understand”
We love you and we completely understand ?

However, according to other reports, poor ticket sales could be both the reason for Future pulling out (of the tour, that is), and the overall cancellation. A source from Live Nation reportedly told Page Six that in comparison of the venue sizes, ticket sales are staggeringly low:
“Nicki’s tour could be the most disappointing ticket sales of the year for any artist. These are big arenas with up to 20,000 capacities. Sales for opening night in Baltimore is 2,000 tickets. LA is 3,400, New Orleans 1,000, Denver 1,300, Chicago 3,900…”
