Mayor Of Philadelphia Apologizes For Nicki Minaj?! Find Out What Upset Him HERE!

michael nutter apologizes for nicki minaj5

Really, Philadelphia? You didn't see this one coming?

Over 4th of July weekend, Nicki Minaj, along with other performers, like Ed Sheeran, performed at a 'family friendly,' concert along the Ben Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia.

Sounds fun, right?

Well, concert-goers got a surprise when Nicki let the curses fly when she performed her single, 'Yass Bish,' which is full of profanities(shocker!).

The Mayor of Philadelphia, Michael Nutter, was PISSED when he found out because Nicki had allegedly agreed, along with the other performers, to modify her lyrics to be less profane…AKA NO CURSING. Nutter was even more angry when 83% of readers of Philly Magazine agreed that the concert was too raunchy!

Nutter held a press conference and said:

"Performers are required to perform in such a way that is subject to network broadcast standards and practices."

Nutter also went on to claim that Nicki's crew originally changed the 'Yass Bish,' to a more family friendly, 'Yes Chick,' a modification which obviously didn't make it to the stage.

While we're sad to hear so many families were offended, we think the mayor of Philly should have REALLY thought about the appropriateness of his performers BEFORE the event.

Hopefully the next 4th of July event goes off without a hitch!

    Perez- just a friendly notice that your website version is acting up. I will be reading an article and the page starts acting crazy and moving around. Hopefully you can get this fixed because it is very difficult to read anything. I am not a hater- I'm just trying to help!

    PS- there is A LOT going on on the side panels with the new format you are using. I liked your original set up better- especially when you didn't have to click to read an entire article. Have a great day!

    I'm pretty sure Philly has more problems than this woman's cursing. Besides I was there she actually attempted to censor herself but the crowd wasn't and it was probably hard not to say the bad words when thousands of other people are

    You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. No matter how far Nicki gets from Queens, the "hood" is too deeply ingrained.

    Re: A friend – Hope you get your problems fixed. I am not having any of the problems you report, but I just got my laptop totally cleaned with all programs back. Was not cheap but way better than getting blue screen errors.

    It's about time someone finally apologized for that fugly no-talent manatee. Now we just need to execute ryan seacrest for the kardashians and usher for that bieber thing,and all will be right with the world.

    Yeah, that happens to me too. Also, the pictures load delayed on a webpage. I stopped visiting less so not to deal with it - which I guess is a good thing

    Can't expect gutter trash to act like anything but gutter trash … The mayor was silly to think she could or would act like a lady !
