Nicki Minaj reportedly threw a "complete strop" at T In The Park on Sunday - after taking issue with the grass outside her dressing room.

The rapper was apparently so perturbed by the excessively lengthy foliage that she demanded the implementation of an emergency trimming procedure. The Sun reports a backstage source as saying: "Nicki went off on one about the grass around her area, saying it was far too long for her to walk on. She threw a complete strop, pouting and pointing and asking someone to get a lawnmower to sort it out."

Minaj came onstage an hour late and performed for just 20 minutes at the Kinross festival, provoking a chorus of disapproval from the disgruntled crowd. Festival-goer Charlotte Roseking told NME: "I've just waited longer than her whole set was; what is the point? I want to shove this glowstick up her arse."

The flamboyant rapper, who also performed at London's Wireless Festival on Saturday (July 7), will return to the UK for an arena tour in the autumn. The UK leg of her 'Pink Friday Roman Reloaded Tour' was recently extended from eight dates to ten.

For a full review of the festival's performances, pick up this week's NME, which is on newsstands or available digitally now.
