Ariana Grande Just Threw Massive Shade At Travis Scott And Kylie Jenner

It’s well known in the industry that Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj are hella close. The two have done a few songs together for both of their albums and continue to show each other endless love and support both on and off social media.
So, when Nicki Minaj got into some new drama with Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner, people were waiting to see if Ariana Grande would get involved and side with her girl. It turns out–she did.

Let’s back-track and give you some historical facts. Nicki Minaj launched an attack on Twitter towards Travis Scott and his girlfriend/baby-momma Kylie Jenner.

The photo that Minaj is referring to, of course, is the one Kylie Jenner posted on her Instagram, captioning it: “me and storm ready for tour.”

me and storm ready for tour ?♥️

Nicki basically got angry that Kylie helped her boyfriend sell merch linked to album sales, boosting his numbers to beat hers.

Many artists have begun linking album and merchandise sales, as more people have switched to streaming apps and services over purchasing whole albums. Therefore, they can still lock in high album sale numbers, even if people aren’t buying the album outright.

At the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, Grande and Minaj were seen whispering about something–which, fans of course assumed was Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner.

Nicki hopped on her radio show to throw even more shade at Scott, saying:

“What we’re not gonna do is have that Auto-Tune man selling f*cking sweaters telling you he sold half a million albums, because he f*cking didn’t. You stupid f*ck. You got your f*cking homeboy talking for you and you got your girlfriend selling tour passes. Stop it. Knock it the f*ck off.”

Damn, girl–that’s cold-blooded. While Nicki continues to drag Travis Scott, Ariana Grande threw her own shade in the mix at her Sweetener Sessions in Chicago this week when people were talking about her album going number one.

And Twitter couldn’t hold back.

It just goes to show you that real friends come through and have your back when you need it most. We see you, Ari.
