Nicki Minaj and Peter Rosenberg Call a Truce on Hot 97
Looks like Nicki Minaj isn't the big diva so many peg her to be after all.
Last year, the entertainer canceled her appearance at Hot 97's Summer Jam concert due to radio jock Peter Rosenberg's opinionated comments regarding her pop-drenched song "Starships." He didn't like the track and let the world know during a live stream of the event. Once she caught wind of his words, a war raged on with the rapper calling him out in interviews and via Twitter. Now the two have made amends through a fitting platform: inside Hot 97 studios.
Earlier today, Minaj sat down for an interview with Rosenberg and Ebro for the H07 97 morning show. The discourse could've gotten very heated but the "High School" rhymer informed listeners that she's no longer fazed about the situation but in hindsight wished she would've performed for her fans. "It's water under the bridge," she told Rosenberg. " I can't even act like I care anymore."
For those unaware of his actions, Rosenberg described how he was hosting the Hot 97 festival stage in 2012, and took aim at Minaj's "Starships" for being mainstream and not a good indication of what hip-hop sounds like. As the conversation moved forward, he apologized for how his comments turned into a snowball effect. "I am sorry that things went as left as they did," he stated. " I never had ill feelings about you as a human being ever. I never would have ever dissed you in any personal way ever beyond my sort of distaste for that song."
Nicki Minaj may very well grace the Summer Jam XX stage for a surprise performance. The event takes place June 2 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
