Nicki Minaj to Hot 97

Count Me Out

Next Year Too

EXCLUSIVE

0604_nicki-minaj_GETTYNicki Minaj is still super pissed after an NYC radio station dissed her hit song "Starships" and has vowed to never perform for them again .... EVER, TMZ has learned.

The singer bailed on Hot 97's Summer Jam concert this weekend in NJ after a DJ blasted her hit song as "F***ing bulls**t." The public rip caused Lil Wayne -- who heads up her record label --  to pull her from the gig, disappointing thousands of fans. 

Sources close to Minaj tell TMZ ... the singer stands by her boss's decision to axe her performance and when she heard the radio station wanted her to come back next year ... she said that would NEVER happen.

We're told Nicki feels the DJ's comments were completely disrespectful and doesn't want to work around negative people when there are countless others who actually WANT to hear her music.

The DJ -- Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg -- called in to TMZ Live today, claiming he has no beef with Nicki ... but still thinks "Starships" is "wack and corny."

Hot 97 should have "REPRIMANDED" their "MOUTHY AZZ" DJ and "PUBLICLY" APOLOGIZED to both Nicki Minaj and HER MANAGEMENT (Lil Wayne)!!! The DJ was "STRAIGHT UP STUPID" for publicly criticizing performers scheduled to participate in a major show being hosted by the management of his radio station!!! WHY PURPOSELY "SABOTAGE" ANY LISTENER'S INTEREST IN ATTENDING THIS MAJOR SHOW??? Loud mouthed DJ's come "A DIME A DOZEN" and MOST AREN'T PAID VERY WELL!!! The success of this event could mean the difference between several station employees KEEPING THEIR JOBS OR LOSING THEM!!! Nicki Minaj may not be everyone's favorite recording artist, but her current popularity gives her PLENTY OF CLOUT!!! Stepping on her toes ISN'T WORTH "THE DRAMA" especially when so many people have substantially cut back on their entertainment spending!!!

The DJ is probably telling the truth. But, he screwed up big time when Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj's leader, removed...

The talent level of todays,"artistes" is relative to the outlandish clothing and hair and tats they display, the more of the latter expresses a complete lack of the former...
