Although thousands of fans anticipated watching the singer live, Nicki Minaj had to cancel two upcoming United Kingdom concerts due to an issue with her vocal chords.
The "Super Bass" songstress performed a free, two-hour concert in New York City on Wednesday (August 15) despite doctors orders. After the show, the 29-year-old tweeted, "And barbz its official, my voice is GONE!!!! I swear it held up just to spk to u guys last nite! Mind over matter. The mind is so powerful."
Revealing yet another endorsement deal, Nicki Minaj lends her voice and curvy strut to the new Adidas Originals television spot.
Joined by designer Jeremy Scott, the "Beez in the Trap" songstress is seen walking through the streets of New York City wearing a colorful puffy coat and shoes from the forthcoming Fall/Winter 2012 collection as she waves and chats with friends on the street.
