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."

Well, everyone is entitled to their opinion. I don't think she should penalize her fans over one person's expressed opinion. She knows her style is unique and as such, some people will not like her work.

He's right. But then again, 99% of the music played on that station is "fu**ing bulls**t". This chick has no musical ability, that's why she tries to mask it with pink hair, clown make-up, and facial expressions like she just surprised herself by taking a dump in her pants.

Hip Hop is dead anyway..... Its the same old crap repeating for about 30 years. Nikki need to keep her head up and keep it going. This may not of been Hip Hop but it will be something to someone. Hey look at Jersey Shore this song might fit with them. The JS crew has a huge following. Money is made everywhere. Nikki has a big imagination, she needs the right producer to help. Hey if Madonna and Lady Caca can make it anyone can.

FINALLY!! Someone has figured out how to make this idiotic bat just go away. That DJ ought to have a building named after him or something. If all these talent-less, rogue-minded HipHop and Pop "artists" are this thin-skinned, we may have found the light at the end of the crap music tunnel. Ah, I know...no such luck. Dang!

I think he is confused about who he gets his paycheck from. He just screwed himself out of that industry. You don't disrespect the people who bring you money and popularity
