In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Nicki Minaj had a lot to say about her feud with Travis Scott.
The “Barbie Dreamz” femcee explained that while she is not angry nor bitter that Travis managed to beat her and take the number one album spot in the country — she still feels like she should punch him “in his f–king face.”
During the sit-down, Nicki said she felt like Travis, and Kylie Jenner cheated her out of the number one spot because they sold T-shirts, tour passes, and other merchandise to get to the top of Billboard 200 chart.
During the chit-chat on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Nicki explained: “The thing is, it’s not anger, it’s what’s right and what’s wrong and what’s fair. I’ve had a number two album, and I never cared. It’s just that when you have a number two album to someone who is selling shirts and merch, and selling passes for a tour that isn’t announced yet, it feels like you’re being tricked. It feels like someone is playing a game and like beating you at a game as opposed to just selling music. I want to sell music. He sold a lot of t-shirts and sweaters and tour passes, and we’re not going to have that!”
Nicki said that she is still very grateful for her fans who came out and purchased the album.
The New York artist stated: “I want to make sure I say this, because sometimes people think you’re ungrateful and I’m the most grateful person in the world. I love being grateful and remembering that things can be worse. I started from nothing. I’m one of those people; I get it. But I don’t like being bullied, and I don’t like being taken advantage of, and sometimes people use scare tactics against you because especially as a black woman, people will call you ‘angry’ or ‘bitter.’ So now it’s almost like we’re not allowed to defend ourselves or stand up for ourselves, and I’m not going to have that.”
Kylie had an odd run-in with Nicki at the 2018 VMAs, and a source said she is struggling with the rap beef between her man and the femcee.
The person told Hollywood Life: “Kylie was very uncomfortable last night. She’s extremely sensitive to negative energy, so the drama with Nicki Minaj was hard for her to shake off. Kylie’s also not that comfortable in crowds, so that was a factor as well. While she was happy to be at the VMAs and proud to support Travis, she still battles anxiety — especially about having a run in with Nicki. Kylie and Travis went out of their way to avoid having a run in with Nicki.”
Do you think Nicki is right or wrong in this fight?
