Portal Pop Line shares:

“As published in the Journal Notebook According to O Globo on Wednesday, 6, rapper Nicki Minaj and singer P! Nk are committed to the event and will be announced soon. “The rapper Nicki Minaj, who broke his stick with Mariah Carey on a reality talent show, will be announced in the coming days as another attraction of the Rock In Rio P!nk is also taken for granted in programming.”

Last week, fans of P! Nk mobilized a campaign to bring the festival artist. Currently, the singer, who never came to Brazil, is on the road touring with “The Truth About Love.” The last show is on schedule Sept. 5 in Australia. Thus, there is a compatibility with the festival dates.”

Set to mark the first any of the musicians have performed at the event, Minaj may now join Beyonce in using the record breaking event to push new material due for release this year, with reports of her third studio album being in the works heating up since the launch of her critically acclaimed EP, ‘The Re-Up’.

      Lol yaas b**** of course minaj will slay

    • kim March 7, 2013

      Poorpchild, one out of many supporters. Talking about niki as a performer. What does she do different but change her wigs and the stage lights. Queen bey is headlining and brazilians cant wait. As for niki, full blast backtrack, and walk up and down the stage.

      • Mother Monster March 7, 2013


        Nicki can’t sing dance or rap shes just a fail as an artist


    • Ren March 7, 2013

        LOL @ mother monster – she puts on performances, without a wheelchair !!

    • Jas March 7, 2013

      HAHAHAHA WTF every Rihanna performance is a horrible performance. Beyonce on the other hand is consistent. In all honesty, I’d rather watch Beyonce perform Crazy in Love for a whole two hours. Than watch Rihanna perform a plethora of new songs horribly… as usual. I love Rihanna’s songs but she can’t hold a candle to Beyonce live. I’d take the same “boring” performance over a new one that consist of poor vocals, horrible dancing, and not so good stage presence any day. With that being said, Beyonce, Nicki, and Pink are gonna slay… So let’s be real(:

    • EJ March 8, 2013

      Where’s GAGA nowadays? lol did the b**** fall off?

  2. ANDY March 7, 2013

    *Wipes Tear*


    P!nk has a growing fanbase in Brazil, as does Nicki, but I don’t think they are anywhere near selling out a stadium there just yet, so the ‘Rock In Rio’ festival is perfect and will give them the much needed exposure.

    We all know that QUEEN MADONNA and EMPRESS TINA TURNER are the only POP acts who come close to selling out South-American stadiums frequently – next to countless Rock acts.


    • QueenBarb March 7, 2013

      Why is Kim’s name being mentioned at all? Kim is off doing her independent thing. Nicki still getting ho’ed by the industry and TRYING to find a lane. Do your research youngin.

      • Beyonce baby Daddy March 7, 2013

        Lil Kim is whack face the f****** facts.

    • mob March 7, 2013

      pank couldn’t wipe Beyonce’s a** let along outshine or upstage her! Have several seats…..

      By the way, what happened to the Cake Like Gaga video? Did I miss the release?

    • Beyonce baby Daddy March 7, 2013

      Where is Gaga career cause nobody checking for her fool ass. And last time i check yo b**** had to see her album for only 99 cent to get big sells. SMH

  5. Mother Monster March 7, 2013

    Nickis flop ass is still booking shows why???

    Shes so pathetic as a musician im sorry i just don’t see it for her goofy looking ass

    • TK March 7, 2013

      Her “flop ass” is still capable of selling out a show that’s why. You don’t have to see it for her there are plenty of others who do.

    • DeezNuts March 7, 2013

      But…it is Platinum tho. ???

  7. Gaga had to snip her penis before becoming a female pop star March 7, 2013

    Beyoncé>Pink>Nicki we already know she can out perform them. I love gaga but please let’s not go there…Beyoncé>Gaga. Singing dancing and everything Fame did what like 12 Million with a re-release(the fame monster).. meanwhile after debuting with over 1 million, BDay still outsold born this way after debuting a little over 500k. You gaga fans I tell ya!!! Also again pressed sissy wierd outcast(typical gaga fan) Beyoncé> Gaga

    • Mother Monster March 7, 2013

      Sorry but gaga is by far a better singer than beyonce and pink

      All beyonce does is yell she has very to lil vocal control shes always been an overrated vocalist Kelly Clarkson & Nicole Sherzinger have better voices then beyonce like forreals

      Nicki has zero to no talent what so ever shes a flop & irrelevant, she doesn’t deserve a record deal

    • John W. Harris March 7, 2013

      Agreed. No offense to P!nk, Nicki or Gaga. But they’re not messing with Beyoncé in my opinion. Gaga looks up to Beyoncé for a reason. I like the picture where Gaga was kissing the tv while Beyoncé was performing at the Superbowl. I don’t care for Gaga much at all, but maybe she’ll grace the Superbowl one day just like Queen Bey. So proud of Bey.

  8. Blue March 7, 2013

    Nicki will be a mess as usual, bey will kill it and grab all the attention
    and p!nk will f*ucking slay that sh!t 5 times over in her first 2 sec on stage and as always get over looked

  13. nicko March 7, 2013

    Im SO happy for Nicki ! 🙂 To yall b****** sayin she cant perform live, u should check her ‘Pink Friday tour’ and Pink Friday: Reloaded tour reviews !!! Nicki has really improved her performing skills.. anyway ull see that the day of the event w/ Beyonce

  14. . : : h 2 o : : . March 7, 2013

    Suppostedly, the show will be headlined by Beyonce, and considering Beyonce slays both of these chicks combined, I don’t see the point of them joining her TBH.

    Plus, she has new music coming out, and that’s what people (specially in BEYzil) are here for, nothing else!

    I was excited at first but now . . . . . . . . . . .

    • ,. March 7, 2013

      So you talk for everyone in Rio and know who they want and not want,i like bay too,but people is there to see Pink and Nicki just stop the b-llcr@p.

    Mess, Kween P!NK should headline that show.

    • mob March 7, 2013

      Headline? 0_o…..What, you want the audience to suffer more than they will with her being Beyonce’s opening act?

  18. Da 1 March 7, 2013

    I knew it would be a day when Bey now has to scale down to doing festivals in order to stay rerelevant. RiRi made there done that and has moved on.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . March 7, 2013

      The fact that a certain “irrelevant” artist is selling tickets much better than Rihanna alone . . . . . . . . . .

      And child, I can give you like 20 things that Beyonce has already done and Rihanna hasn’t . . So calm your cow-sized tits down all the way.

  19. mc the place to be! March 7, 2013

    I’m sorry but pink kills it on stage she does the acrobat s*** while singing that takes a lot of skill and she has a good raspy voice LOL where did GaGa come from?

    • EnRanc March 7, 2013

      …yeah and didn’t Pink fall and bust her head trying to do that acrobatic s***? Meh.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . March 7, 2013

        Well, LOL.

  20. King B>Rihanna March 7, 2013

    Yes Pink the only b**** that can touch Beyonce on a stage then maybe Gaga after that.

  21. Beyyyyyy March 7, 2013

Only cause of Pink and THE QUEEN! This is one show that’s going down n the history books. Two of the best female performers of this generation! And @ the little bastards aka little monsters. Gaga don’t wanna see KING B on NO STAGE! KING B outshine her on her own damn song! And that’s all I gonna say. Gaga said herself there is nobody like KING B! U little c*nts tried it though lmaoooooooo

  23. RIH AND NICKI IN RIO!! March 7, 2013


    • . : : h 2 o : : . March 7, 2013

      I don’t think it’s a good idea, considering Rihanna already has 4 flop albums and Nicki has 3!!!!!

      PLUS, they suck on a cow’s balls live.

    • John W. Harris March 7, 2013

      How is “4” a flop when it is a multi-platinum album? Doesn’t make sense to me. But f#@k record sales. Beyonce is the best performer hands down….them other chicks ain’t messing with Queen Bey.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . March 7, 2013

        I wouldn’t try to convince them that “4” is not a flop.

        If “4” is a flop, then so are “Music of the Sun”, “A Girl Like Me”, “Rated R” and “Talk That Talk”, all of which sold around the same level of “4”. Which makes Rihanna’s entire EXISTANCE a flop.

      • FAF March 7, 2013

        Nicki doesn’t have 3 albums… where is the 3rd? U mean the re-release of 8 tracks ? CH..

        Y’all need to make up your minds. first you say its a flop, and its a re-release now its a new album?!

    • opd2 March 7, 2013

      Little b-tch don’t inclode nicki your f-ckry,trying to get bay stans to hate on nicki a matter a fact real bay stans now that bay is cool with nicki so only haters will buy in to you f-ckry…you jealous b-tch trying to get shade on nicki because yall favs isn’t there and H 2 O don’t you multi account @ss have c**** to blow…Bay.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . March 7, 2013

        When I change my username from “BEYHIVE MEMBER” to “WATERSPORTS” to “H2O”, it’s called multi-accounting?

  32. Emz March 7, 2013
