Travis Scott who turned up for the VMAs alongside other celebrities, reportedly asked to be moved after he was seated behind Nicki Minaj who went off on a drag rant against him, his girlfriend, Kylie Jenner and many others yesterday.
It was gathered that Nicki Minaj was seated in front of Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner for Monday’s MTV Video Music Awards in LA, according to a photo of the seat chart. The original seating chart for the VMAs was partially released on Monday. Nicki was in the front row near Ariana Grande. And just behind them were Kylie and Travis. However Travis Scott who wasn’t comfortable with it, asked to be moved.
‘Travis will now sit on the opposite side of the room from Nicki,’ a source said. The insider added it was not about their bad blood, it was more about image.
We reported that Nicki Minaj who missed scoring the coveted US number one spot for her new album Queen, is not really happy about it and she has lashed out at Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner and many others for the defeat.
Nicki Minaj whose newly released fourth album Queen was locked in a weeklong chart battle with rapper Travis Scott’s Astroworld, lost to Scott who moved 205,000 albums to Minaj’s 185,000, according to Billboard. Though the sales are nothing to be sniffed at, but the chart defeat appears to have rattled Minaj, who’s placed blame at her “loss” on a variety of sources.
The rap Queen trashed Travis Scott’s bundle,which includes his clothing, concert tickets and other merchandise sold via his official store, and bundled with sales of his album — which were promoted on Instagram by his partner Kylie Jenner. Nicki Minaj also blamed streaming giant, Spotify, for a lack of promotion — punishment, she claims, for debuting her new music on her ‘Queen Radio’ Apple Music special.
