Lil Wayne, who pulled the trigger on Nicki Minaj's bail from Hot 97's Summer Jam after D.J. Peter Rosenberg dissed Minaj mightily, is ready to speak about the whole thing now. First off, he verifies to MTV that his Young Money artist Minaj is, without a shadow of a doubt, a woman: "That's a female; first and foremost Nicki Minaj is a female," Weezy says. Then: "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." Followed by: "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." And one final comment from Wayne, person on this planet: "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."
