According to her, maybe next year she could put together a special performance.

"I know I'm in the commercial but I actually won't be performing," the singer wrote. "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!"


Nicki joins fellow Young Money artiste, Drake who also went on a social media to call out the Grammys for misinforming fans.

He wrote, “I am not performing at the Grammy Awards…but hey it’s the thought that counts.”

Nicki recently got involved in a heated tweet fight with reality star Farrah Abraham on Sunday night, January 10.
