Nicki Minaj blamed a 6-month-old baby for lackluster album sales, and Twitter has been rolling out some golden memes about the whole situation.
Despite landing the No. 2 spot on the Billboard 200 with “The Queen,” Nicki was peeved that Travis Scott‘s “Astroworld” topped charts for the second week in a row. During a Twitter meltdown on Sunday, Nicki blamed Spotify, Travis‘ merch loophole, Kylie Jenner‘s promotion tactics, and even the couple‘s infant daughter, Stormi Webster, for keeping her from the coveted No. 1 spot.
For backstory: Nicki is accusing Travis of inflating his album sales by selling the album, tour tickets, and merch as a package. In another tweet, she claimed that Billboard was changing its standards, since the merch bundles boosted the total album units sold.
During the rant, Nicki tweeted a screenshot of Kylie Jenner‘s Instagram post promoting the package, which was captioned “me and storm ready for tour.”
“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,” Nicki raged on Twitter. “Im actually laughing.”
She later went on to complain about how unfairly promoted Drake‘s “Scorpion” more heavily than her album, and then played the whole rant off as .
But the damage was already done: Twitter users thought it was hilarious that Nicki threw shade at a 6-month-old baby.
Remembering the that led up to the 2015 VMAs — when Nicki Minaj Miley Cyrus on live television with her iconic “Miley, what‘s good?” — some Twitter users were itching for another celebrity feud.
Despite the fact that she‘s still an infant, Stormi has a rapidly growing fanbase.
Other Twitter users criticized Nicki for being a sore winner, and claimed that Travis Scott‘s album was more meaningful.
Meanwhile, photos of VMA prep show that Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner are supposed to be seated right behind Nicki Minaj — which would probably make for some extremely awkward small talk.
TMZ that updated plans seat Travis and Kylie on the other side of the room. Fans still if they‘ll end up bickering on the red carpet anyway.
