According to the New York Post gossip column Page Six, Nicki Minaj is postponing fall tour dates for what they describe as a “top secret session.”
Feel free to add scary music or the sound of you sucking your teeth here. In any event, they scrounge up some details about the mystery sessions – or better yet, more details about the secret and how she’s keeping that info so secretive until she’s ready to dish. Yes, this makes sense.
The day after Minaj was reportedly accused by a club of backing out of an appearance, she booked a 12-hour session at Otis Conner’s state-of-the-art Dallas studio the Axcess Group, which previously has hosted Kelly Clarkson and the Jonas Brothers.
“No one at the studio was allowed to know the name of the song Nicki was recording,” said an industry source. “They were told Nicki did not want anyone to know.”
Adding to the intrigue, her security squad arrived far in advance. “Her team came three hours before her to meet everyone in their office,” our source said. “They also looked around for any groupies hiding out.”
Two black Cadillac Escalades then delivered the “Super Bass” rapper, wearing jeans and a little fur vest, followed by two bodyguards, her own engineer and a personal assistant.
“She sent someone out to buy her own water, and she also had to have them buy straws she could sip from” before she holed up in the studio, our source said.
On Sunday night, Minaj played nearby Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie, but tweeted later, “No after party tonite” and “[shout out] to the promoters who sold tkts under false pretenses tho.”
Zouk, a downtown Dallas venue, countered that it paid Minaj more than $30,000 for an after-party appearance. Reps for Minaj did not respond to requests for comment.
