Earlier this week, Minaj expressed her outrage on Twitter about how the rapper's new album, ASTROWORLD, beat hers, Queen, for the No. 1 spot on the U.S. albums chart, criticizing the efforts made to promote him. She tweeted, "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," referring to the couple's six-month-old daughter. Scott and Jenner have not responded to Minaj's Twitter comments. On Monday, the two women nearly had what could have been an awkward run-in on the red carpet at the 2018 MTV VMAs.
"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."
