Nicki Minaj is not apologizing to Hot 97 for not performing at the station’s annual Summer Jam concert on Sunday. Instead, Minaj called the New York radio station last night to tell DJ Funkmaster Flex why she’s happy she listened to Lil Wayne, who made the decision.

“After a man goes on stage and disrespects me...I still was going on that stage, and you know what shame on me,” she said. “Lil Wayne gave me a valuable lesson in self-worth.”

Still, Flex defended Peter Rosenberg, the DJ who dissed Minaj’s latest single “Starships,” and said it was just an opinion.

“It's not about his opinion, because I have opinions about DJs at Hot 97,” she said. “I wouldn't dare come on your stage or even say something to my fans negative about anyone on Hot 97, leading up to that concert.”

Minaj also made sure to defend one more thing – her record sales. “I’ve sold 3.5 million albums in two years,” she told Flex, who made comments about them.

While apologizing only to her fans, Minaj is giving them a free concert in New York this summer. “And my fans will get what I promised them,” she wrote on Twitter.
