Nicki won't let anyone bring down her tour vibes.

Nicki Minaj has dismissed any notion that she's struggling financially. "Imagine being this dumb πŸ˜©πŸ˜‚. They SOOOOOO mad that they had to eat ALL their words about this tour. πŸ€ͺ They tried EVERYTHING to prevent this magic & even blatantly lied everywhere hoping it would deter ppl from coming. If y’all only knew. Bwahahahahahaaa," Minaj wrote on X. The rapper was responding to resurgent claims that her Pink Friday 2 tour was not profitable and was only being done to cover her debts.

However, randos on social media are not the only people who have had to eat crow over the tour. DJ Akademiks' plan to prove Minaj was "washed" backfired when the controversial social media creator discovered live on stream that the rapper's Pink Friday 2 tour was genuinely sold out. Akademiks, a longtime critic of Minaj, had jumped online to "prove" that the claims of Minaj's tour sales were overblown. However, try as he might, he was unable to any of her tour dates that had more than a few tickets still available. Minaj continues her tour tonight (March 10) with a show in Seattle.

Barbz Already Demanding Tour Film From Nicki Minaj

Meanwhile, despite Minaj being just three shows into her tour, the Barbz are demanding a "cinematic experience" like Taylor Swift and Beyonce produced last year. "I hope there will be movie experience of this tour! 😍 visuals are top tier and @NICKIMINAJ looks amazing πŸ’–," one popular fan account on X wrote. As mentioned, Minaj has only hit up Oakland, Denver, and Las Vegas so far on the 57-stop tour. The tour runs until July 14, when Minaj will close out with a performance at the Les Ardentes Festival in Belgium.

Furthermore, the tour includes Minaj headlining Wireless Fest in London, a performance she is very excited about. "Instead of doing another arena show in London after we sold out in the first week, I opted to do Wireless Festival. This year's show will be a billion times more special, creative, beautiful, cohesive, ugh! I'm so excited. I'd like to tell you guys thank you in advance. Last year was so meaningful but won't compare. Just wait & see," Minaj wrote on Instagram. Minaj has been a regular feature at Wireless for over a decade.
