    I feel like this needs to get out on how others are not getting what they paid for. I'm writing an article and I'm going to submit it to some celebrity website so hopefully it can get some attention.

    hello :) i am getting very upset as i dont know if nicki will have meet and greets later this year.. in the fall for the UK tour.. can anyone let me know?:(


    Nobody knows other than Nicki herself an possibly GroudCtrl, we have to wait just like you and if you had read previous posts then you be aware that none of know as of yet.


    who is the "GroudCtrl"?! if she signed under "LIVE NATION" why arent they orginize the whole vip packages like all the m&g throught "VIP NATION".


    I contacted Live Nation myself and they said they were doing NO VIP packages for her tour, it may have been to stop them having to tell me anything but apparently they're not doing anything for it.


    Thankyou that helped me :) because I thought you would know more than me.:) do you think she will not have 'em then ): xoxoxoox

    My guess is as good as any I suppose, I would say there is a chance there will be M&G and/or VIP packages. We just have to bide our time sadly!

    The M&G did not go fine at all. I just receive my pictures and yes I'm excited about it, but the M&G greet package was blatant false advertising.
    The M&G is not at all what I paid for. We were treated horribly by her security, like we were a nuisance and it was very very VERY unprofessional and completely disorganized.

    ALSO it should be noted that there is a second group of M&G who won it through a radio contests. I know they went in after we did, so maybe theirs were better and that's what you are seeing on Twitter. There pics are not up on this site.

    Yes, it's true they were supposed to go in after us, but by the time I went through and got to my seat the show was starting. There was no way she could have quickly met with them in the minute it took, and then got on stage. I don't think they even got to meet her, because after the show we were all back where we entered trying to get "Derek" the tour managers attention but he was ignoring us. I would love to know if they actually got to meet her and if so how that went. *rolls eyes*

    I feel like this isn't necessarily Nicki's fault, I think she is super controlled by her security and GroundCtrl. I remember meeting her through a competition in New York this past April & the M&G after her Times Square performance was completely unorganized. She was late due to press stuff for Nokia and once she first came in a small room full of 50+ people, her security guards pulled her out because people were excited and wouldn't bring her back until we lined up. We were initially told groups of 4 would go up for pictures (2 pairs of strangers in one picture, ehhhhhh) and she wasn't signing ANYTHING except for her CD. We were to take NO photos ourselves or of Nicki. People were pissed, many left but once I got up there I had my poster and her security asked if I wanted it signed and I got excited, met her, hugged her, told her how beautiful she was, took 2 amazing pictures just with my guest, hugged again, thanked her for such an unforgettable night and waved goodbye. Nicki was an ABSOLUTE SWEETHEART who really seemed to care about her fans. I wish everyone could experience positive M&G's because I know they're possible. It's unfortunate that people are spending $$$ to be pushed and shoved by security members and not even get to enjoy the nice person Nicki really is.

    MY Nicki Minaj Pink Friday Tour Review

    My negative Nicki Minaj Pink Friday Tour Review from Miami, Florida (July 24th, 2012): The concert was short. Mostly every song she performed was cut in half... meaning she would only do a few verses (if that)! She was late to her own concert, figures my luck... the second show she was late to was mine... and of all places.. Miami, Florida!? I understand traffic, weather conditions, personal issues, etc... however, that is very unprofessional... for her OWN first independent tour, really.. especially for the VIP, since we are the only ones paying (EXTRA) for it whether we like it or not! If I would of gone without the VIP Upgrade experience, I think I would of enjoyed the concert better, even though that means not meeting Nicki Minaj... it just would of been SO much less drama. I never thought I would say that either! I mean, it's fricken Nicki Minaj! And sadly, I lost some respect for her after this experience... still love her 100%, just felt like I didn't get what I paid for. Didn't get my autograph like I was promised, and basically didn't get early acess to the venue due to us waiting on Nicki to arrive! :/ The worst was after the show... we formed as a group (of the VIPS) at the right end of the stage (where we formed a line earlier that night for our pics with Nicki) to try and confirm why we didn't get our boob signings or autographs. And let me say, they were SO rude! First the security with remarks like "if you guys don't leave we are going to have the police escort you out!" They just treated us like we were the problem, when all we wanted is what WE paid for, and were TOLD we were getting! THEN Nicki's manger later tried buying us off with a picture of nicki from the merchandise stand that anyone could buy for 10$, and then avoided the questions about the autographs purposely **so it seemed anyways..like he was doing us a favor? And kept asking who got their VIP laminates, and who didn't get one earlier... like that is crazy to me, yeah buy me off with these cheap things *sarcasm* (yes, it was a cute pic, but it came in a set with two other pics of nicki **same pics found in her Roman Reloaded album CD case** And this set of pics sold for $10 dollars at the merchandise stand.) Last time I checked my VIP Upgrade totaled at $260.. you do the math!!? And we mostly had our laminates by this point.. -_-

    So as I decide what actions to take, I hope you take all my thoughts and rambles into consideration. Have a good time, or try.. and if you had a awful time... PLEASE CONTACT...

    My postive Nicki Minaj Pink Friday Tour Review from Miami, Florida (July 24th, 2012): Well Nicki looked beautiful, which is no surprize! And she seemed so sweet and down to earth at the meet and greet (the two seconds I was there for...) and the show was great (although to me, personally not as well as her touring with Britney Spears in the Femme Fatale Tour, but that could of been because I felt like she performed longer at Britney's show...). She stage presence was AMAZING. Even if you were in the far away seating, you could tell she really had love for all of us, and it seemed like she was having a good time on stage! She performed "Save Me" and she had the cutest outfit, it was probally my favorite.

    I don't know why anyone would think if we had a completely AMAZING time we would be on here posting such awful things about our idol, Minaj. I mean, I would be on Facebook bragging or something. We are all friends here, keeping each other updated. So CHILL! D: I wouldn't be writing all of this if I didn't have a problem, and wasn't so annoyed with all this! Haha I know I am going to get hate for bringing you guys down who haven't attended yet. I am staying hopeful for you guys, but take everything you're reading on here seriously, or with a grain of salt... but I am telling you guys JUST BE PREPARED FOR WHATEVER HAPPENS BARBZ!!!!

    Just got back from the Houston show.

    let me say what happened with the vip. So they said get there before 6pm, which we did and thats when they let us in. they had told us to go through and meet at the staircase by 7:45 and so we all decided to head over there and wait which the arena staff didnt let us do since they said that part was closed so we moved down a little and waited. they finally let us go up once the regular people started coming in so we go up there and wait in this dark hallway with very little light. so we wait there for like 2 hours and they come out saying that nicki is running late and it will happen after the show. so after the show, we line back up and she walks by us and personally apologizes for being late and she gave us pizza, chicken and soda/water. then we go in one by one and get a photo, after we leave the room we got an autographed photo and the laminate.

    it really wasnt terrible at all like i expected it to be. idk why y'all said it was horrible.

    highly doubt it, unless you leave it with them and pick it up after the show (thats if you really trust them with it) but our venue had seats on the floor (which was my original assigned seat) but it also counted as a floor seat...(kinda like how britney did hers for the femme fatale tour)
