Nicki Minaj Passes on Tour With Rihanna

Nicki Minaj has opted against joining Rihanna’s Last Girl on Earth Tour this summer.

The Queens MC broke the news to her fans on Twitter this afternoon [April 7]. “Barbz I’m sorry 2 say I will not be going out on RiRi’s tour,” she wrote on Twitter. “I’ve decided 2 use that time 4 the completion of my album. Hope u understand.”

And she has been hard at work on the disc. Minaj recently premiered the video for “Massive Attack,” the first single off her as-yet-untitled album last week.

Although she won’t be joining the 25-city tour, you can still catch the Harajuku Barbie alongside her Young Money partner Drake on the cover of the May 2010 issue of XXL, which hits stands nationwide on April 20. —Brooklyne Gipson

          Bottom line, she ain’t got the material to go on the road as a tour featured act. About the time she runs thru those guest verses, that ain’t even 10 mins.

          Most likely if she did go she would receive bad reviews off of her set that would hurt her promo.

    I could talk a lot of noise about how wack nicki’s music is, but it would be a waste of time.

    First the freshman 10 cover, now this…

    shorty is cooked!

    Umm…maybe she realized that nobody would be there to see her? Just “Rihanna?”….come on…her or Ms. R…I take that island bitch anyday. But anyway..on a brighter note. I liked the Wu Massacre :)

    first of all i can almost garantuee niki doesnt like rhianna when all is said and done, and doesnt like what she is doing with her life and music. I wouldnt want to spend months on the road with that nut.

    Also, its called the last girl on earth tour… yea niki doesnt want to take a back seat to that.
