Nicki Minaj may be on the war path right now, but one person she doesn’t want to mess with is mega popular Forbes magazine cover girl Kylie Jenner.
Earlier this week, Minaj lashed out on Twitter about how Jenner’s boyfiend, rapper Travis Scott, didn’t deserve to have his new album, ASTROWORLD, beat hers, Queen, for the No. 1 spot on the U.S. albums chart.
The Real #1
During the rant Minaj criticizes his efforts to promote his project including what she believes is an unfair use of his romantic relationship with a member of the Kardashian/Jenner clan.
“He knows he doesn’t have the #1 album this week,” she tweeted. “I love my fans for the #1 album in AMERICA… I put my blood sweat & tears in writing a dope album only for Travis Scott to have Kylie Jenner post a tour pass telling ppl to come see her & Stormi. lol.”
Scott and Jenner have yet to respond to Minaj’s wrap comments. Although Monday, the two women narrowly avoided what could have been an awkward run-in on the red carpet at the 2018 MTV VMAs.
Clearing the Air
“TMZ posted a video saying Kylie Jenner avoided me at the red carpet, it was funny and I thought it was cute. I said it on the last show and I’ll say it again. I f–king love Kylie and that’s never gonna change,” Minaj said on her Apple Music Beats 1 radio show Queen Radio on Thursday.
“She has been put in a little awkward situation, but this isn’t real life—this is entertainment. I love Kylie and so do my fans.”
“Nicki has gone off the rails,” an industry insider recently told the New York Post. “She can’t take it that she sold less records than Cardi B (who’s stealing her thunder big time) in her first week; she can’t take it that Travis beat her to No. 1. Her ticket sales for her tour are in the toilet, and it’s making her even more crazy.”
