But last night during the Grammys, where Cardi B became the first solo female rapper to win Best Rap Album award, BET's social media captioned a post about the win with the sentence: "Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront".
Nicki Minaj has a message for BET: Don't mess with the Queen. Young Money leader, Lil Wayne is also a headlining act on the show, and now it's unclear if he too will go ahead and cancel his performance. Check out the text (below).
"Nicki has paved the way for so many performers and has solidified her place as one of the most powerful figures in the music industry". We deeply apologize for all the hurt, disappointment and the confusion that this post has caused'. We have supported her from the beginning of her career, and we will continue to do so...More news: Missouri prison nurse fatally poisons husband to marry (life) inmate lover
In another post, Nicki thanked her fans for their support, writing. "And further does not reflect our company values", the network said. We are also conducting an internal audit to assure these types of posts are not published again.
In the meantime, the posts have been removed, but Nicki caught sight of them anyway, and her pride will not let her perform at the BET Awards after receiving such shade. We understand Nicki's position and look forward to continuing our dialogue with her.
According to Complex, Nicki is now encouraging her fans to get a refund for their tickets to her BET show. "This should have never happened".More news: Morocco freezes involvement in Saudi-led coalition in Yemen
