London Critics Trash Nicki Minaj Concert


Nicki Minaj receives HORRIBLE reviews for her O2 Arena concert in London...

From The Guardian
Coming after cancelled shows and bad PR, this disjointed drag of a performance suggests the razor-tongued rapper’s career is fading.

You wonder how it came to this: how a razor-tongued talent once among rap’s most revered names, able to straddle gleaming pop on smashes such as Starships and snarling trap on tracks such as Only, stooped to offering two-for-one tickets to her first London show in years, due to slow sales. Tonight’s disjointed drag of a performance suggests it is not all down to the bad PR of her beef with Cardi, US rap’s new national treasure. After a blistering first 15 minutes that peaks with fiery female masturbation anthem Feeling Myself, things starts to sag as her neon-pink, chameleonic hip-pop gives way to lengthy sections devoted to ballads like Grand Piano, mimed from behind a veil, and EDM experiments such as Pound the Alarm.
When she does interact with the crowd, it is to share Mary Poppins-like impressions of Londoners, enquire about which men present have “a giant dick”, and fire subtle barbs at a certain Bronx-born nemesis (“Any of you know someone who copies everything you do all the time?”). At her best, hits such as Anaconda fizz like popping candy, delivered while she is slouched on the ground with a wild-eyed grin like Alice in Wonderland’s Cheshire Cat by way of Cleopatra. But by the time she closes with 2011’s Super Bass to a depleting room (she went on stage an hour late, and last trains beckon), the sugar rush has long since faded.

Fun Fact: There were rumors that her last show in Bordeaux France was canceled [click here if you missed that] NOT because of technical difficulties but because she refused to perform for 5000 fans in a venue that held 15,000.
