Nicki Minaj is the next artist to debunk claims of hitting the stage at the 2016 Grammys.
After several new performers were announced that included Minaj, she took to her Instagram to clear the air. Minaj says she isn't performing, but she thanks the Grammys for nominating The Pinkprint. She adds that maybe next year she can put together a “special performance” for us.
I know I'm in the commercial but I actually won't be performing. I want to thank the Grammys for being super sweet & supportive & for recognizing The Pinkprint. Maybe next year will make more sense in terms of timing and I'll create a very special performance for you guys. In the mean time, enjoy the show! ???

Minaj follows her fellow Young Money buddy Drake, who also went on social media to call out the Grammys for misinforming fans. “I am not performing at the Grammy Awards…but hey it’s the thought that counts.”
Maybe someone should have checked that Super Bowl ad before it went live on air…
