Check out what she told FUSE TV during the festival about her fave current female rap chicks. Ms. Minaj & Ms. Banks are indeed on her list:

Nas, one of the organizers of the fest, hit the stage of course:

And Wiz Khalifa & 2 Chainz chilled out backstage:

Pusha T and his braids we wish he’d cut off hit the stage.

Ice Cube repped for the west coast.

Oh hey Big Daddy Kane.

E 40 was out there functioning and ish.  And chillin’ with Method Man and Redman.

Common hit the stage.

And so did J.Cole.

Fun times.  Rock The Bells comes to the East Coast Labor Day Weekend, but first goes to Mountainview, CA this weekend.

Nicki Minaj LASHES Out At Twitter Followers Over Criticism For CANCELLED Shows!

Nicki Minaj used Twitter to lash out at her Barbz who are upset she had to cancel her upcoming European performances. See what she said inside….

 

Following the advice of her doctor, Nicki Minaj pulled out of shows at Britain’s V Festival & in Dublin at the last minute due to bruised vocal chords.  And apparently, many of her fans got a little pissy.  Nicki wasn’t too happy that people attacked her for focusing on her health so she cussed them out on Twitter saying:

“I will NOT let you people make me feel horrible for a f*cking HEALTH issue! That’s what got me in this mess! I should’ve listened to the doctor!”

And added,

“Like people are hitting me telling me I should’ve mimed. No! Then you woulda made a f*cking STORY out of that too! #killyaf*ckingself. All you do is rip people apart and when they’re dead and gone you won’t lose a wink of sleep. #goF*ckYourselves.”

A slightly more mellow Nicki spoke to fans again saying,

I am so thankful to my true fans who understand WHY I couldn’t play #VFestival & WHY I can’t play Dublin. Absolutely gutted

However, if u have anything negative to say to me, please #EatShitAndDie – I am human.

I was in jeopardy of losing my voice entirely and needing surgery on my vocal chord. If u can’t understand that, your mother’s a WHORE!!!!

 

Well damn.  If Nicki speaks to her fans this way….what would she say to an enemy?

VIDEO: Nicki Minaj Brings Out Foxy Brown At FREE CONCERT In NYC, Says “No Other Female Rapper Opened More Doors”

Nicki Minaj kept her promise and gave her fans a big 2 hour FREE concert in NYC Tuesday night…after all that hoopla at Summer Jam went down causing her to not perform there.

 

Nicki surprised the crowd with a few of her celebrity friends, including Foxy Brown.  Check out how they shared the stage and how Nicki praised her inside…

Onicka brought her fellow New York rapstress on stage Tuesday night to help put on for the Pepsi/Fuse free live streamed concert at Roseland Ballroom.

Foxy Boogie came out to support, since she was also set to perform as Nicki’s guest at Summer Jam.  The two performed for the crowd.  And Nicki told Foxy there was no other female rapper who opened more doors for her…than Fox Boogie herself.  She also said many female rappers don’t support others like they should.  We all know who THAT was geared too…

Check out a snippet of video of Foxy & Nicki on stage.

 

And Nicki gearing up for "Starships."   Her other guests for the night?  Cam’Ron, Drake, Lil Wayne & Mack Maine. 

The show was live streamed on Pepsi.com, as well as in Times Square.

Ashanti threw on her purple leopard pants and pumps to hit the video set with Fat Joe, Roscoe Dash, DJ Khaled and more.  Everyone on set was tweeting pics of what they were up to.

And she wouldn’t say much else about what she’s working on, but she did tweet this:

LeBron James tweeted a pic with Chris Paul today as they were on their way to their first Olympic game in London. TEAM USA is taking on France as we type.

And down in H-Town last night:

Nicki Minaj brought her Pink Friday Reloaded tour to Houston.  And she brought out Texas boys Slim Thug and a super slim Paul Wall to surprise the crowd.  The trio snapped a pic backstage. 

 

Rapper Bun B also joined Nicki on stage.  And he and his GRANDdaughter snapped a pic with the Barb backstage.  Yeah, you read that right.

Jay-Z Gets A Call From Beyonce In New Duracell Commercial + Pics & Video From Nicki Minaj’s MIA Tour Stop With Weezy & More

In a cute new commercial for his newest investment, Jay-Z makes a cameo in the Duracell battery ad.  And he even gets his wife involved.  Check it under the cut, plus Nicki Minaj‘s MIA stop last night on the Pink Friday Reloaded tour with her YMCMB crew, and if Chris will meet up with Rihanna for Swizzy‘s "Everyday Birthday" vid….

Mr. Carter is Duracell Powermat’s newest investment partner.  And he’s not only putting up his money, but making actual cameos in their ads.  The first one just hit the net and it’s a cute take on just how much battery power people use for their cell phones.  But while on a night out, a certain fella picks up the wrong phone that has an incoming call from "B."  Some type of way his phone got mixed up with Jay-Z’s.  Before he goes to answer, Mr. Carter shows up to snatch it.  That call is clearly not for the club goer.  Love how The Carters are showcasing their relationship in non-conventional ways.  Check it below:

Loving these business moves Hov is making.

Meanwhile, the chick who said she’s coming for Jay-Z’s throne scooted into Miami last night for her Pink Friday Reloaded tour:

 

Nicki Minaj donned her colorful best as she performed for the crowd–and brought out her Young Money crew as well.

 

Lil Wayne, Birdman and more hit the stage during her set–while Weezy helped her perform a few tracks off her album.  And also rocked "Take It To The Head" with Nicki and a few other tracks he has verses on.

 

And speaking of rappers:

Swizz Beatz has posted more pics from the Cannes set of his upcoming video we now know will be "Everyday Birthday."  He’s got Chris Brown and Ludacris on deck, as we previously reported, and it looks like the fellas are having tons of rich people fun:

By the way, some reports say that there’s a possibility that Rihanna, who is also in Cannes right now, will be asked to make a cameo in the video.  She knows a little something about birthdays….

That would be interesting to say the least.  As we all know, Chris appeared on the remix to Rih’s "Birthday Cake" track.
