While backstage at Hot 107.9’s Birthday Bash in Atlanta, Wayne explains to MTV why he pulled Nicki Minaj from performing at Summer Jam a couple weeks back.
That’s a female; first and foremost Nicki Minaj is a female. I don’t know what anyone else believes, but I believe females deserve the ultimate respect at all times no matter, when or where or how. As soon as she called me and told me she felt disrespected, I just declined everything. I pulled her from the show because… no person that works with me will be disrespected in my presence as long as I’m on this planet. I feel like a woman should be respected at all times, therefore I made the right decision.
I’m all about women getting respect, but Peter Rosenberg’s words had nothing to do about gender. It was about music and just that. If you’re an artist in any industry, you’re subject to public opinion. And damn… ain’t this the same man that’s said *insert countless derogatory lines* in any of his hundreds of songs? Yeah.
