Lauryn Hill Stands by Nicki Minaj on Her Decision Not to Perform at Summer Jam 2012

Nicki Minaj was set to perform at Summer Jam 2012, that is until Peter Rosenberg dished out some harsh words that caused her to cancel her appearance..
Artists and fans have opinions on whether she should have ignored the comments or whether she was right for cancelling her performance. 
Lauryn Hill, who did perform, added her two cents to the mix, in a letter sent out to her 45,000 Twitter followers, Lauryn Hill offered her support to Nicki. 
"No disrespect to Nicki, but I need to clear up an inaccuracy. I was not scheduled to be a special guest on her set at Summer Jam, I was invited by Nas to perform with him. I don't have details on exactly what transpired between the station and the artists, but I do support artists standing by their beliefs, and walking with integrity. We have to find a better way to commercially exploit music, while giving artists their proper respect. This cannot be done while taking their contributions for granted, or trying to control the scope of their growth and power through threats and fear tactics. We can do better than this, there is a better way, or else 'we' (the proverbial we) find ourselves in danger of being hypocrites!!!"
