Rihanna’s “Last Girl On Earth” Summer Tour doesn’t kick off until July 2, but the event has already hit a snag. Femcee Nicki Minaj — who had been tapped to join pop star Ke$ha as an opening act– has announced that she’s dropping out of the tour.
“Barbz I’m sorry 2 say I will not be going out on RiRi’s tour. I’ve decided 2 use that time 4 the completion of my album. Hope u understand,” Minaj Tweeted on Wednesday.
Nicki’s decision to focus on her debut album may come as a bit of a surprise: In February, the Young Money artist told MTV News that she taking her time with her new CD “because she felt people need to get used to seeing a female rapper again.” I dont know why she would drop out of a huge tour like this. Artists do not make any money on album sales these days. They get all there money from touring. Maybe she thinks she is to good to open for Rihanna ? She does have like zero hits last I can recall. I dont think the tour will suffer at all. Rihanna has a huge fan base and should do very well. Big mistake to not expand her fan base.
