Frank Turner slams Nicki Minaj over T in the Park snub
Singer Frank Turner has taken aim at Nicki Minaj over allegations her security disrespected the crew at Scotland's T in the Park festival on Sunday.
The songwriter took to his Twitter.com page to rant about Minaj, claiming her minder pushed aside a stagehand to make way for her backstage at the event.
Turner re-tweeted a message from his backing band The Sleeping Souls, which read, "You know what? Nicki Manaj (sic) can just f**k right off... backstage her security guy just pushed a crew person off the path into the mud so she could walk past."
In a series of posts, Turner then added, "To clarify: Nicky (sic) Minaj has been being a total selfish s**thead to all the hardworking crew backstage at T. Pathetic. F**k off. You can (I suppose) be a d**k to your own crew, you're paying them. But everyone else? And not to mention the people out front. Ugh... Also for the record: I have no opinion either way about Nicki Minaj's music, don't think I've ever heard it."
Minaj told her Twitter followers she was feeling unwell before the gig, writing, "Still sick but the show must go on... right?" but she left the crowd fuming when she hit the stage 50 minutes late and was forced to cut short her set.
