Singer struck down by illness

Nicki Minaj cancels V Festival 2012 performances

Chris Swindells - 18 August 2012

Nicki Minaj had been ordered by doctors to rest her voice for two weeks after being diagnosed with bruised vocal chords, but the US singer had hoped to make her two V Festival shows this weekend.

A statement from V Festival said: "Miss Minaj’s band and crew have all arrived in the UK ahead of the performance at the festival this weekend, however as the artist herself boarded her flight from New York on Friday 17th August, she felt unwell again. This is despite having thought she had overcome her vocal chord issues from earlier in the week.
Having revisited her doctor she has now been advised to rest for a week, which unfortunately means that she is no longer able to perform at V Festival.
V Festival organisers wish her a speedy recovery."
LMFAO will now be headlining the 4Music stage at 21.40 on Saturday 18th August in Weston Park, Stafford and on Sunday 19th August in Hylands Park, Chelmsford proceeded with an additional live performance from DJ Fresh at 20.20.
