Hip hop sensation Nicki Minaj has canceled her appearance at this weekend's V Festival due to "strained vocal chords," according to her representative.
Minaj was urged by doctors to "rest her voice for a few days" after she ignored their advise and performed a two-hour free concert for her fans in New York on Wednesday, which made her voice worse.
