Nicki Minaj has been captured on camera apparently yelling at a fan for crumbling under pressure and forgetting the words of her song during a concert.

It would appear that Minaj has no patience for those who can't handle the spotlight.

During her Pink Friday 2 world tour in Las Vegas, the superstar rapper appeared to have a heated exchange with a concertgoer.

Amidst technical difficulties and a late entrance that left fans waiting for two hours, Minaj's show encountered a stumbling block when she invited a fan to sing along during her rendition of 'The Night is Still Young.'

The fan, positioned in the front row, struggled to keep pace with Minaj's performance, leading to a visibly irate reaction from the artist.

In a bizarre moment captured on camera, Minaj forcefully reclaimed the microphone, scolding the fan: "No, no, give me the mic. Give me the mic! GIVE ME THE MIC!"

According to NT News, the fan had previously had a chance to sing and instead of joining in, got her phone out to record the moment.

Minaj then began berating the fan, exclaiming that they just learned a lesson on "living in the moment", telling the fan to "put [their] motherf***ing phone down".

People flooded the comment section with their thoughts, with one person saying: "Imagine wasting that much money to be that close and the performer is mean to you."

A second said: "I feel so bad for her cause I’d be nervous too and then have ur idol looking at u like that."

Others sided with Minaj, as one person said: "Yall are such phone addicts.. The potential video of her singing could’ve been found everywhere on the internet yet she chose to mess that up."

Another added: "Exactly, live in the moment. Who cares if your being filmed or not. Y’all are so annoying in these comments saying she’s rude to her fans. That fan was rude to hold her up so she could film herself."

However, during the same evening, Minaj appeared to forget the words to her own songs on multiple occasions, per News.com.au.

Despite the onstage mishaps, Minaj has been riding high in the music industry, with her album Pink Friday 2 debuting at number one on the US Billboard charts.

This milestone makes Minaj the first female rapper in history to achieve three number-one albums in the US.

The North American leg of the Pink Friday 2 Tour commenced earlier this month in Oakland and is slated to hit major cities including Los Angeles, New Orleans, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Toronto, Chicago, and New York City.
