Nicki Minaj has told a group of fans to "eat shit and die" after they criticised her for pulling out of this year's V Festival.

The rapper had been scheduled to headline the 4Music stage at the two-day bash, but pulled out after she felt ill boarding a flight from New York on Friday (August 17). She has since cancelled tomorrow's (August 21) gig at Dublin's Olympia Theatre, but took exception to fans airing their disappointment on Twitter.

She wrote: "I am so thankful to my true fans who understand WHY I couldn't play #VFestival & why I can't play Dublin. Absolutely gutted."

Minaj then ranted:



She went on: "I will not let you people make me feel horrible for a fucking health issue! That's what got me in this mess! I should have listened to the doctor! Like people are hitting me telling me I should've mimed. No! Then you would have made a fucking story out of that too! #killyafuckingself."

Both Dappy and Frank Ocean also previously cancelled their slots at this year's event. Meanwhile The Stone Roses closed last night's proceedings at the V Festival in Weston Park while The Killers rounded off events in Chelmsford.

To read a full review of this year's V Festival, pick up next week's copy of NME, which is onsale on Wednesday (August 22).
