Nicki Minaj’s UK tour is off to an eventful start. In Manchester, the colorful rapper passed on a chance to meet Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli because she was “tired” and needed to eat a massive order of Nando’s chicken. Then, at the Echo Arena show in Liverpool last night, Nicki grabbed an LFC flag handed to her from the audience and strutted around stage (it’s unclear if she rapped “You’ll Never Walk Alone” in her trademark style).
Mario was crushed by the way.
Minaj performed at the Manchester Evening News (MEN) Arena on Monday as part of her Pink Friday: Reloaded tour, and Balotelli, along with a few of his City teammates, went to the concert. He reportedly had arraigned to meet her before the show, but she decided not to at the last minute.
“Mario was gutted,” Metro reports a source told the Sun. “He’s a big fan and turned up with gifts along with his other Man City team-mates. “But Nicki was too tired after the gig and feasted on a massive Nando’s order instead — so he went home disappointed. He’d even bought a camera especially.”
That’s cold, Nicki. Who do you think you are? No one stands up Mario. He’s a bigger star than you are.
No word on which Liverpool (or Everton) players Minaj was supposed to meet at the Liverpool show last night, but it’s just a shame Ryan Babel’s not around anymore.
