Her representative says in an email that Minaj will have to back out of her shows on Saturday and Sunday because of "strained vocal chords."
Minaj performed a free concert in New York City on Wednesday, though she had been advised by her doctor to rest.
Her rep now says her voice is "worse," and that recent X-rays show that the singer-rapper must "rest her voice for a few days."
The two-day V Festival also features The Killers, David Guetta, LMFAO and The Stone Roses.
