Nicki Minaj Puts Off Summer Tour For Third Album

Nicki Minaj says that several projects will keep her from touring for the first time since 2010.

Though Nicki Minaj has a slew of projects on her plate, she has usually found time to partake in a summer tour for the past two summers. However, this summer will likely see the Young Money star off of the road.

"I don't think I can [tour]. I really would love to," said Minaj in an interview with MTV News.

Nicki continued, enumerating the many business ventures she has on deck. "But I don't think I'll have the time, because I'm also going to be launching a few products this year that I'm really going to have to lend myself to the clothing line, I have a drink that's about to come out and these new speakers that you guys are going to see a commercial for this week or next week."

Nicki did reveal, however, that business isn't the only thing that's keeping her away from a summer tour. "So I have a lot of things that the business side of me has to work on, and I also want to be here so I can write. I obviously am going to start working on the third album very, very soon. I'm getting beats as we speak. I just haven't started writing, but that's my biggest priority at this point."

    3rd album? She never came out wit a 2nd album. She just kept re-releasing the first one!!!
    • foreal
      i thought the 2 album was a re release or remixed version of the first album. maybe she should think about her album titles. i think she has a dart board with random words on it and thats how the album titles come to be, throwing darts at words

    • QueenMinaj
      And that's who's fault that our communities flopping? Tell hoes to date, get married, have a career then have kids or just simply use a condom and our community will prosper. The goal is to get out the hood.

    Let's not forget why all of YM's artists don't drop albums... Their work ethic is straight horse doo. They want to live like Wayne, but they don't realize it took Wayne alot of years to get to where he is now. He may look and sound like a gremlin, but dude is always on the grind. I suspect these bums are kickin back day after day in their rented homes smoking weed and drinking instead of coming up with a blueprint for their first album, or planning a tour to support it.

    In other words, be prepared for more pop garbage from this bitch.
    • Dadonroman
      Did you listen to the interview? Did you check out her last release? Haven't you heard her features? She's doing more Hip-Hop than pop as of lately. This album might take a while since she's gearing up for a quality Hip-Hop album.
    • Anonymous
      HAHAHAHAHAHAAA!! Good one. Quality hip-hop can't come from the same bitch that sang Super Bass, Starships, and Pound The Alarm. She sold out: she's no longer a hip-hop artist, but a pop joke.

    A THIRD ALBUM ??? LOL What about the dudes who've been on Young Money since forever and still haven't dropped yet ? Damn Gudda Gudda...even Tyga dropped 2 albums before you did.
    • Anonymous
      Gudda should just stay home and watch Maury cause his album is never coming.
    • haha
      Thanks to wikipedia, you're also forgetting Mack Maine, T-Streets, Jae Millz, Lil Chuckee, Lil Twist, PJ Morton, Shanell, Short Dawg, Cory Gunz, Torion Sellers, and Flow. Majority of these people have been signed for 4+ years, and haven't put out anythings sans mixtapes;I guess I won't count Christina Milian because she's already put out albums, and Reginae Carter will probably put out more than any of the people listed above, because she's Lil Wayne's daughter.

  • KEvon
    Another garbage pink friday album......
    • QueenMinaj
      Actually, in the interview she said she might not keep te title Pink Friday: The Pink Print and that although she's ready for the next chapter she don't think she want to use the word Pink for her next album. If you didn't listen to the interview why comment stupid sh*t? The answer was in front of you. All you had to is google MTV First: Nicki Minaj interview
