Yesterday, Nicki Minaj named Travis Scott "Hoe Nigga Of The Week" for beating her on the Billboard charts by using the same questionable sales bundles that she tries to use.
Now she's called out a Billboard writer as a potential "Cock Sucka Of The Day," an honor which she will officially bestow on tomorrow's episode of Queen radio.
The writer's sin was reporting that Nicki Minaj had canceled her North American tour because she didn't have time to rehearse.
You are now in the running for #CockSuckaOfTheDay award on #QueenRadio this Thursday. Barbz get me the name of this writer then hit them & tell them this is one black woman they will not bully into a corner by FRAUDULENT SHAMING TACTICS. So to clarify; because I realize common sense is far from common... I haven’t CANCELLED anything. I reversed the order of the US & EUROPEAN LEGS of my tour. This is for obvious reasons to anyone with a brain. My album was originally going to drop in June which would’ve given me 3 months of tour rehearsal. However, I was still writing & recording up to last week. We are all grown right? We can all do math right? Or will they just pretend to not have basic sense so that they can board the Nicki Hate train & get some clicks? I can’t rehearse 4 WEEKS for a tour I originally planned on rehearsing 3 months for. I give my fans QUALITY. I write & co produce my own music. Therefore, I can’t rehearse while I’m WRITING & RECORDING my album. My true fans understand & know that I will deliver an extraordinary US TOUR which begins in MAY just like I delivered an extraordinary album entitled #Queen. My European fans get the SAME EXACT DATES they’ve always had. Australian fans SAME EXACT DATES they had. Cancelled what? Where? The narrative they are trying to create is disgusting. But I must say, I’m enjoying this. I love bringing some excitement to this shit. I love having the balls others only dream about. Wait, who’s been dreaming about balls? 🙈 There’s another publication I’m giving CSOTD award to. I won’t tell you who. It’s a surprise 😜 Shout out to my fans around the world. I love you guys so much for holding me down. I’m working on a M&G experience for the tour & will update you ASAP.
In Nicki's lengthy IG message, she points out that she didn't cancel the tour, she just moved it from September of 2018 to May of 2019. She added that since her album was pushed back a couple of months it made sense to move the North American leg to the other side of her European leg, which starts in February.
And we guess it would make sense if she really does end up having a North American tour that begins in May of 2019 and that plays the same arena-sized venues the original leg was set to play.
However, there were multiple reports yesterday that the real reason her tour was pushed back is that nobody is buying tickets for it. (Opening night in Baltimore was said to be barely 1/10th fill.)
Oddly, Nicki didn't call out all the media sites (including this one) which relayed that much more embarrassing piece of information.
We guess she's trying to pretend it's not out there.
Update: In a new Billboard article, they explain that while sales for Nicki's tour have been "soft", it's probably not the only reason she pushed it back.
