“I really fought’

August 21, 2018

Nicki Minaj says she "fought" to have 6ix9ine perform their "Fefe" collaboration at the 2018 VMAs but, ultimately, the performance wasn't approved.


"I wanted him to perform with me at the VMAs and somewhere along the line he didn't get approved to perform by the powers that be," Minaj said during the latest episode of Queen Radio. "I don't want anyone to think for a second that I wouldn't invite him to perform his hit record. I want everyone to know my character. I really fought. It is what it is. When I know somebody there's nothing you can tell me about [them]. That's just how it is."

Minaj performed a medley of songs, including her verse from "FeFe" and new music from her album Queen during the awards show.

The FADER has reached out to MTV for comment.
