Nicki Minaj On Kylie Jenner Apparently Avoiding Her At The VMAs: ‘I Fucking Love Kylie’

Nicki Minaj, Travis Scott, and Kylie Jenner are the best Mad Libs pairing of celebrities in recent memory. During episode five of her Queen Radio show, Minaj cleared the air about Kylie after a video of the mogul reportedly avoiding her on the MTV Video Music Awards red carpet surfaced.

“I fucking love Kylie and that’s not going to change,” Minaj said. “This is not real life, this is entertainment. I love Kylie and so do my fans. Kim was on my first episode of Queen Radio — fucking love her. We’re not going to make something that it’s not. We’re not going to start any dumbass cat fights for your entertainment. This is strictly music, between musicians.”

Kylie potentially avoided Nicki Minaj at the VMAs because of tweets the Queens rapper posted a day before the awards ceremony. On Twitter, Nicki detailed why she felt she deserved the No. 1 album over Travis Scott’s Astroworld, after it secured the top spot on the Billboard 200.

“Travis sold over 50K of these,” Nicki wrote. “With no requirement of redeeming the album! With no dates for a tour, etc. I spoke to him. He knows he doesn’t have the #1 album this week.”

In a second tweet, Minaj doubled down on her assessment that Travis didn’t truly have the top album in the country.

“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,” she continued. “I’m actually laughing. #Queen broke the record of being number 1 in 86 countries. Thank Jesus & thank you to my fans.”

Thankfully, it seems like the competitive spirit only pertains to the music. Listen to the entire episode on Apple Music.

Nicki Minaj Will Reign Over The 2018 VMAs With A Queenly Performance

Bow down, Barbz. Just days after dropping her long-awaited fourth album, Queen, Nicki Minaj will hit the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards for a special remote performance, presented by PEPSI, that’s sure to be epic.

How do we know? Because Nicki’s given us precisely that no fewer than six times this decade. The rapper made her VMA debut in 2010, performing on the pre-show red carpet, and she’s since hit the main stage five times, busting out “Anaconda” in 2014 and “Trini Dem Girls” in 2015, just to name a couple.

Minaj’s two most recent VMA performances have seen her sharing the stage — she joined Ariana Grande for “Side to Side” in 2016 and Katy Perry for “Swish Swish” last year — but this time, the queen is ridin’ solo. Or, who knows, maybe she’ll have a surprise up her sleeve. It’s the VMAs, so anything could happen!

Not only is Minaj performing at the August 20 bash — from a secret, iconic location in New York — but she’s also looking to take home her fourth Moon Person. The Queen MC’s futuristic “Chun-Li” is nominated for Best Hip-Hop Video.

Minaj joins a star-studded roster of artists performing at the 2018 VMAs, including Travis Scott, Post Malone, Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, Logic with Ryan Tedder, and this year’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard recipient, Jennifer Lopez. And we’re not even done rolling out the announcements…

The 2018 MTV Video Music Awards will air live from Radio City Music Hall on Monday, August 20 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Voting is now open at vma.mtv.com!

Travis Scott And Post Malone Are About To Wreak Havoc On The 2018 VMAs

The 2018 MTV Video Music Awards are going to Astroworld. However, the show might make a pit stop in a post-apocalyptic wasteland if one Texan has his way. Travis Scott and Post Malone are bringing their unique brand of melodic havoc and destruction to the stage this year.

Scott’s first solo VMA performance, after he partnered with Thirty Seconds to Mars last year, will be a medley from his third studio album. The Houston rapper will have a lot of fan-favorite material to choose from. Astroworld’s standout “Sicko Mode” featuring Drake and Swae Lee is headed for a top 10 debut on the Billboard Hot 100. Not to be outdone, “Stop Trying To Be God,” featuring Kid Cudi, James Blake, Stevie Wonder, and Philip Bailey of Earth, Wind & Fire, already has a superb Dave Meyers-directed visual that sees Travis playing the role of Jesus, while Kylie Jenner is a golden sparkling goddess.

Post Malone has a slew of hits to pick from as well off his platinum-certified album, beerbongs & bentleys. Will he perform the tried and true “rockstar” featuring 21 Savage, decide to go with “Psycho” featuring Ty Dolla $ ign, or show off his solo chops with “Better Now?”

Both musicians lay claim to the most successful first-week totals for an album in 2018, behind Drake’s Scorpion. If projections hold, Scott’s Astroworld, will debut with 450,000 to 500,000 equivalent album units. His only competition for the second biggest release is Malone’s beerbongs & bentleys, which debuted on the Billboard 200 with 461,000.

Scott and Post will be joining a packed performance slate, which includes Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, and Logic with Ryan Tedder. Jennifer Lopez will perform too, in addition to accepting this year’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. The 2018 VMAs is set to be the year pop’s new ruling class takes over.

The 2018 MTV Video Music Awards will air live from Radio City Music Hall on Monday, August 20 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Voting is now open at vma.mtv.com!

Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, And Logic With Ryan Tedder Will Perform At The 2018 VMAs

Every year, the MTV Video Music Awards stage becomes a glittering showcase on which the biggest acts of the year can bring their songs to life. This year, it’s really going to reach the heavens — thanks to Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, and Logic with Ryan Tedder, who will all perform at the 2018 VMAs.

Ari’s set to bring the divinity-channeling “God Is a Woman” to the stage just a few days after her upcoming album, Sweetener, drops; it’s also her first time back performing at the VMAs since the steamy cardio session she shared with Nicki Minaj for “Side to Side” in 2016. Ari also has five VMA noms to boast about this year, including Video of the Year (for “No Tears Left to Cry”) and Artist of the Year.

Mendes, meanwhile, will return with guitar in hand to deliver “In My Blood,” the lead single from his self-titled 2018 release, after rocking the house (and nearly disappearing into the crowd) last year for “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back.” “In My Blood” nabbed one of Mendes’s three noms, including Best Pop.

After a powerful and poignant rendition of “1-800-273-8255” at the 2017 VMAs, Logic is back with a brand new single called “One Day.” He’ll get some help performing it on this year’s stage from OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, who features on the track. Logic’s nominated twice this year for “1-800,” including Best Collaboration and Video With a Message.

This new slate of performers join an already packed show, including an explosive performance by Jennifer Lopez, who’s also set to receive the storied Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Meanwhile, Cardi B and Jay-Z and Beyoncé The Carters lead the nominations with 10 and eight, respectively — but it’s always anybody’s game. You can help pick the winners right now by voting for your faves, so you’d better get to it.

The 2018 MTV Video Music Awards will air live from Radio City Music Hall on Monday, August 20 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Voting is now open at vma.mtv.com!

A Good Look at Kanye’s “Beige” adidas Yeezy Boost 350s from the MTV VMAs

Last night at the 2015 MTV VMAs, Video Vanguard recipient Kanye West made a splash with his sneaks and his speech, breaking out a “Beige” take on his adidas Yeezy Boost 350 on the red carpet and the big stage.

Following up an all-white colorway debuted at recently signed adidas athlete James Harden’s birthday party, this tan take is as neutral as it gets, sporting the same styling of previous 350 Boosts but remaining calm in color blocking.

At the moment, there is no information regarding a release of this colorway, but as we’ve seen in the past, most colorways worn by Kanye eventually hit the market. Peep detailed shots of Mr. West wearing the “Beige” adidas Yeezy Boost 350 in the photos from the VMAs below.
