Poor Nicki Minaj is too ill to play at this weekend’s Virgin Media’s V Festival.

The Pink Friday songstress was due to headline the festival’s 4Music stage (Staffordshire today, Chelmsford tomorrow) but has been forced to pull out after she felt ill when boarding her flight from New York.

That’s really, really bad timing for ya.

A spokesperson for V Festival said: "Due to on-going vocal issues, Nicki Minaj is unable to play this year's V Festival. Miss Minaj's band and crew have all arrived in the UK ahead of the performance at the festival this weekend, however as the artist herself boarded her flight from New York on Friday 17th August, she felt unwell again. This is despite having thought she had overcome her vocal chord issues from earlier in the week.

"Having revisited her doctor she has now been advised to rest for a week, which unfortunately means that she is no long able to perform at V Festival."

Adding: "V Festival organizers wish her a speedy recovery."

Oh dear.

Get well soon Nicki!
