Nicki Minaj has been spending the last few days crying about how the second week of Travis Scott's album Astroworld didn't deserve to beat the first week of her album Queen and how there was some sort of conspiracy that did her in.
But there's at least one place that still ranks Nicki above Travis.
Here's the seating chart for tonight's MTV VMAs.

As you can see, Nicki's placed in front of Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner (and Gucci Mane and Lil Uzi Vert.)
Ariana Grande, whose album Sweetener dropped Friday, also gets front row treatment. Since Nicki's all about the charts, Sweetener is projected to do 200-225k SPS, which is better than the 185K Queen put up, but not nearly as good as the 552K Astroworld logged.
Should Nicki be moved to the back?
Update: TMZ says MTV has now moved Travis Scott so he won't be behind the woman he beat on the charts.
