Nicki Minaj's Twitter Rant About Kylie Jenner And Stormi Is Now A Hilarious Meme

The queen of rap lost her cool after missing out of on the no.1 spot in the US and now it's been turned into a meme.
You'd think after selling 185k copies of her new album in its first week of release that Nicki Minaj would be over the moon with the performance of Queen, but her Twitter account seems to suggest otherwise.
Minaj released her fourth album Queen last week and despite a very respectable overall sales figure, and going to no.1 in 86 countries, she just missed the top spot on the US album chart. Instead, she went in at no.2, and Travis Scott hung on for a second week at the no.1 spot with his album Astroworld.
But, in a bizarre Twitter rant, Nicki insisted that she had the number one album and blamed her no.2 position on Travis' girlfriend Kylie Jenner and their daughter Stormi, because Kylie advertised Travis' album/tour ticket bundle on her Instagram. Nicki seemed to suggest that people were only buying the bundle to see Kylie and Stormi on his tour.
Travis sold over 50K of these. 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. I love my fans for the #1 album in AMERICA! I’ll explain on #QueenRadio 4 albums in, #1 in 86 countries ♥️ pic.twitter.com/CiYEuczgm3— QUEEN (@NICKIMINAJ) August 19, 2018
I looked at the numbers the Carters, Kanye, Nas, etc recently did. Travis sold 200K in his first week of clothes alone. I spoke to him last night & he said he’s been selling clothes b4 the music. Billboard says they’ll change the rules cuz of this, so it should be changed now!— QUEEN (@NICKIMINAJ) August 19, 2018
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. lol. Im actually laughing. #Queen broke the record of being number 1 in 86 countries. Thank Jesus & thank you to my fans.— QUEEN (@NICKIMINAJ) August 19, 2018
Then Nicki accused Spotify of withdrawing their support because she played her album on Queen Radio 10 minutes before it appeared on Spotify.
Spotify put drake’s face on every playlist but told me they’d have to teach me a lesson for playing my music 10 mins early on #QueenRadio. Even tho they’ve been giving away my music for free for years & I am one of the top Spotify artists of all time.— QUEEN (@NICKIMINAJ) August 19, 2018
Spotify had to teach me a lesson but rewarded the man who has had an Apple radio show the longest; inadvertently helping the Apple platform the most. Oh I can’t wait for #QueenRadio on Tuesday. They took away my promotion they had promised for the 1st cpl days b/c of this. #Queen— QUEEN (@NICKIMINAJ) August 19, 2018
My music went up on Apple so I played it. I assumed it was on Spotify & Tidal at the same time. Spotify said that Apple tweeted fans advising #Queen was up & therefore they had to teach me a lesson. But PRAISE BE TO GOD!!!!!!— QUEEN (@NICKIMINAJ) August 19, 2018
My label didn’t want to defend me for fear of Spotify trying to teach Ariana a “lesson” too! https://t.co/1dAdbcbWVd— QUEEN (@NICKIMINAJ) August 19, 2018
People are now making memes about Nicki blaming Kylie and Stormi for her chart position and, honestly, they are some of wildest memes we've seen all year.

Side note - this video is the best thing we've seen all year.
Nicki is going to be sat in front of Travis and Kylie at the VMAs tonight (20/8) and many are speculating that drama is about to go down.

I'm starting to think this drama was planned by Kris Jenner all along.

The devil works hard but Kris Jenner works harder.
We're just going to leave this here.
The apparent reasons Nicki isn’t #1:— The Opinion (@SheraeSpeaks_) August 19, 2018
-Lady Gaga and R.Kelly
-Mercury having been in retrograde
-The weather outside
She could have checked when Mercury was in retrograde imo.
Nicki has since said that she was being sarcastic and that she isn't actually pressed about the situation. At all.
People are calling me thinking I’m huffing & puffing. Omg y’all this is sarcasm/dry humor. Yikes. I’m having the most iconNIC time. Come let me kiss you. 😩😘😘😘 Who’s coming to the secret show? When people call me & hear me crackin up laughing they seem so puzzled. Loosen up 😅— QUEEN (@NICKIMINAJ) August 19, 2018
