*No matter how cold, angry or weird they may seem, celebrities have feelings too. Really, they do. Well …. most of them.

Anyway, Nicki Minaj made that very apparent recently when she lashed out on critics via Twitter after getting the 5th degree from fans when she canceled two shows due to vocal trouble.

She was scheduled to perform at two shows in the U.K. and Ireland, but couldn’t make it happened because she was straining her vocal cords.

“Barbz, u know how much I hate disappointing u guys,” she tweeted. “All you do is rip people apart and when they’re dead & gone u won’t lose a wink of sleep. #goF*ckYourselves,” she shared in a separate tweet.

Then she took time to explain.

“I was in jeopardy of losing my voice entirely and needing surgery on my vocal cords. If u can’t understand that, your mother’s a WHORE! I will NOT let you people make me feel horrible for a f*cking HEALTH issue! That’s what got me in this mess! I shldve listened to the doctor!”

She couldn’t be lying, right?

No way. The rapper/singer sounded pretty strained during her performance on Aug. 14 at New York’s Roseland Ballroom.

While fans are disappointed, she was sure to hint that she’d be returning with a little surprise.
