Women need to be respectedů
Lil Wayne recently spoke with MTV News about his decision to pull Nicki Minaj and Young Money from Hot 97's Summer Jam concert this month after Minaj's single was trashed by a DJ. Check out the highlights:
On Minaj feeling dissed: "That's a female; first and foremost Nicki Minaj is a female. I don't know what anyone else believes, but I believe females deserve the ultimate respect at all times no matter, when or where or how."
On his decision to yank Young Money: "As soon as she called me and told me she felt disrespected, I just declined everything. I pulled her from the show because ... no person that works with me will be disrespected in my presence as long as I'm on this planet."
On his feelings toward Hot 97: "I expect the red carpet, in her manner; the pink carpet should be laid out for her. It's just an executive move, no salt, no bad feelings, no hard feelings. I feel like a woman should be respected at all times, therefore I made the right decision."
