Nicki Minaj Was Two Hours Late to Her Wireless Festival Headlining Slot
She had to jump onstage with the night's closer, David Guetta, to make up for "traffic delays"
Tonight saw the close of London’s Wireless Festival, which would’ve gone out without a hitch had it not been for the no-show of the weekend’s most eagerly anticipated headliner, Nicki Minaj. Per the event’s Twitter account:
Nicki Minaj has had last minute travel issues so is delayed. We’ll update as soon as we have more info #Wireless

Minaj was set to have begun her solo performance at 7:30 p.m. GMT —instead, the Pinkprint rapper took the stage two hours later for what seems to have now become a collaborative appearance with superstar DJ David Guetta. Thousands of angry fans have already stormed Twitter to demand refunds and express their dissatisfaction.
@NICKIMINAJ Not like you’ve had the whole day to get to wireless
