A handful of shady concert promoters have invoked the wrath of hip-hop princess Nicki Minaj, by planning a series of fake shows that claim to feature the in-demand rapper.
After getting wind of the news from her fans on Twitter, Nicki has promised to handle the problem herself. "What is this i'm hearing about a MSU [Michigan State University] concert? where and when is this concert supposed to be? i feel so bad 4 ppl who were scammed," she wrote, after a follower posted a twitpic of fans lining up for one of the supposed shows. "I tell u guys all the time, if u don't see me tweet about it, its not real. i'm gonna figure out the bastards behind this MSU scam."
"I'm not doing any shows between now and the 22nd of October. When shows r confirmed i'll let u guys know. I'm sorry," she continued, referring fans to her new website MyPinkFriday.com for legit show information. "Wen i find out the person responsible for this MSU scam i'm putting their name on twitter. scamming college kids? go to hell!"
The bombshell currently appears on the cover of Complex Magazine's October/November cover issue, where once more she answers questions about her sexuality and admits that she's celibate. "I didn't say [I don't like women]. I said I don't have sex with women. I don't have sex with men right now either. If [bisexual is] what they wanna call me, then fine," she said. "And I encourage all my young Barbies to do the same. I just don't have time."
Following news of the local concert scam, Minaj also announced that on October 30 she will play an official show in Trinidad, where was was born and lived until her move to the U.S. at age five. Fans can find details at MyPinkFriday.com.
