Fans react as Nicki Minaj refuses to perform ‘Starships’ at event, calls it a stupid song

During a New Year’s Eve event in Miami, Florida, Nicki Minaj refused to perform her popular song “Starships,” calling it “stupid.”

A video posted on TikTok shows her singing only a few lines before abruptly ending the performance.

“Hold on,” the 41-year-old said to the crowd. “I don’t perform that song no more, y’all.”

“I don’t like it,” Nicki Minaj continued, resulting in a clearly unimpressed audience. “What y’all want me to do? Stupid song.”

Instead, she opted to perform her 2010 hit song “Super Bass.”

“Starships,” from her album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, reached No.5 on the Hot 100 chart and spent 31 weeks on it. Fans on TikTok have since shared their thoughts on Nicki’s opinion of the song.

“It makes me sad when artists say they don’t like their most popular song. That song gave you tons of sales, fans and recognition, at least respect it,” one fan wrote.

Meanwhile, another fan commented, “I don’t blame her it’s dated and would get annoying to perform all the time.”
