She tells AllHipHop.com, "When I first heard about the possibility of touring with Rihanna, I was thrilled to be included on the ticket. I admire Rihanna as an artist and I know it would've been a killer line up. I'm disappointed that the timing won't work, but I hope we'll be able to revisit the opportunity in the future."

Rihanna will kick off the tour in Seattle, Washington on July 2 with pop star . A replacement for Minaj has yet to be announced.
