Nicki Minaj Cancels Show, Fans Start Chanting “Cardi B”
Nicki Minaj's European tour hit another snag Saturday night (March 9) in Bordeaux, France when her show was canceled right before it was set to start. The news had some fans who were in attendance so pissed off they started chanting "Cardi B" as they walked toward the exits.
Nicki is about midway through her Wrld Tour with Juice Wrld. But last night's show ended up being another let down for reasons beyond the Queen rapper's control. Apparently, the venue was not able to power Nicki's extensive set so the show was shut down at the last minute. Video has surfaced of the crowd's reaction to being notified of the cancellation. Many people are pissed, with some throwing up middle fingers to the stage. As they begin to filter to the exit, a large crowd of people start to chant the name of Nicki's perceived nemesis Cardi B, in an obvious attempt to spite the Young Money rapper for not performing.
Nicki hopped on Twitter and Instagram to address the show not happening. "Why would an artist cancel a show & lose money? What for?" she questioned on Twitter. "When they’re already in the building, dressed, etc. The artist is just as mad as the fans when a show can’t go on. I love seeing my fans. Nothing can stop me. B4 the show, juice WRLD & I are just as excited as u guys are."
Not all of Nicki's fans were pissed. Some stayed behind to cheer on the rapper. This is the second time one of Nicki's shows has been canceled because of technical issues. In February, she was forced to cancel a stop in Munich, Germany because of a similar problem.
