Nicki Minaj Refuses to Perform ‘Starships,’ Calls It “Stupid”

Nicki Minaj sent shockwaves through the music universe as she flat-out refused to serenade the crowd with her intergalactic anthem ‘Starships’ during a New Year’s Eve bash at E11EVEN in Miami. The ‘Anaconda’ maestro, in a TikTok spectacle that rivals a soap opera plot twist, was caught giving the first few lines of the song a half-hearted, “Is this really happening?” kind of attempt before slamming the brakes on the performance. She then dramatically labeled the 2012 hit track as “stupid.”

Pause for effect.

“Hold on,” declared the 41-year-old rap sensation, probably sensing the cosmic disappointment emanating from the audience. She spilled the interstellar tea, proclaiming, “I don’t perform that song anymore, y’all.”

And there you have it, the demise of ‘Starships’ live performances. It’s now officially been grounded.

“I don’t like it,” she confessed, causing eyebrows to rise and heads to shake in disbelief among the onlookers. “What y’all want me to do? Stupid song.”

Oh, the audacity of a song to be so… well, stupid.

But fear not, dear fans, for Nicki had a trick up her sleeve. Like a superhero changing into a more fabulous costume, she pivoted to her 2010 chart-topper, “Super Bass,” rescuing the audience from the depths of ‘Starships’ rejection.

Meanwhile, fans, unable to contain their digital feelings, swarmed TikTok like bees to honey, commenting on Nicki’s candid thoughts about her once-beloved hit. One fan, in a moment of empathetic melancholy, mused, “It makes me sad when artists say they don’t like their most popular song. That song gave you tons of sales, fans, and recognition, at least respect it.”

While another supporter, perhaps a time traveler from 2012, sagely remarked, “I don’t blame her; it’s dated and would get annoying to perform all the time.”

Ah, the fleeting nature of stardom, where yesterday’s chart-topper becomes today’s “stupid song.” Nicki’s ‘Starships,’ once a No. 5 Hot 100 hit that spent an impressive 31 weeks on the chart, now relegated to the annals of musical history, at least in Nicki’s book. Cheers to the resilience of ‘Super Bass’ and the ever-evolving tastes of a 41-year-old rap maven. The saga continues!
