Rapper Nicki Minaj Compares Herself to Harriet Tubman in Album Sales Rant

Kendall is experiencing a kinder Kylie

She pushes right back, insisting she is the next Harriet Tubman. "I looked at the numbers the Carters, Kanye, Nas, etc recently did", she wrote.

The conversation, as per usual, started on Twitter when the "Chun Li" rapper tweeted: "All the QUEENS I remember, SHOOK SH*T UP!"

There were lots of rumours flying around, but it wasn't until she announced the news on Twitter on February 4 that everyone knew for sure.

The 35-year-old star's odd comparison apparently has to do with how she fought for plays of her songs on streaming services like Spotify to count toward overall sales numbers.

"I knew that it would be better for us, if me and Stormi just stayed kind of low-key", Jenner told her sister, Kendall, who interviewed her for Vogue Australia.

While the MTV VMAs 2017 saw Fifth Harmony "kick" a shadow of their former bandmate off the stage during a performance of their hit song Down, this year is all about Camila, who is nominated for five awards.

"Normani reacted to Minaj's praise, tweeting: "@NICKIMINAJ I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you.

After giving him alcohol, Argento kissed him and performed oral sex on him before the two had sexual intercourse, the report said. The Times said it had obtained a selfie of Argento and Bennett lying in bed together, apparently taken in May 2013.

"Please Leave Harriet Tubman out of this!" Watch that clip here.

Nicki also threw shade at music streaming service Spotify, claiming it had failed to promote her album for two days as "punishment" after she debuted the tracks on her new Beats 1 show, Queen Radio, 10 minutes before they were released on their site.

The irate Nicki took to Twitter to voice her displeasure at the outcome, stating that Travis had gamed the rules by packaging his album with early access tour passes and other merchandise in order to beat her.

Minaj's main beef? The fact Kylie Jenner promoted Scott's Astroworld tour packages, which allow fans to purchase tickets, t-shirts and the album concurrently, on Instagram. "Travis Scott is out here selling fucking clothes and got ya'll thinking he's selling music".

Pitchfork has a better transcription of what Minaj said.

What we're not gonna do is have that Auto-Tune man selling fucking sweaters telling you he sold half a million albums, because he fucking didn't.

No, no. "A six-month-old has no such power", you might say. Stop it. Knock it the f*ck off. ... "Travis Scott wins "Ho Ni**a of the Week' by a landslide".
