Nicki Minaj told the crowd during her New Year’s Eve performance in Miami that she’s done performing one of her hits. Video shows that she started the first few lines of her 2012 hit “Starships” before abruptly stopping. “Hold on. Psych, psych, psych, psych,” Minaj said. “I don’t perform that song no more, y’all. I don’t like it, what y’all want me to do? Stupid song.” She then pivoted to “Super Bass” instead. Her dislike for “Starships” is not exactly news. She said in a 2020 interview: “I hate ‘Starships,’ I mean ew, ‘Starships?’ I’m like, ‘Why did I do that?’ I really think that every time I hear it.”
