Nicki Minaj Warms Over A Turd, Then Blames Stores For Not Selling It

Come on Nicki, how many times can you sell the same album again? Especially when most of the shrieking bubblegum nonsense on it already sucked the first time. In an interview with Power 105.1, Nicki had found another scapegoat for the disappointing sales numbers on an album she’d already released last year though:

“Why don’t ya have the songs cued up though? I wanna hear “High School.” I wanna hear “Hell Yeah.” I wanna hear “I’m Legit.” I wanna hear “Up in Flames. You don’t even know these songs and you guys clearly do not support me… I don’t understand why I’m coming to do radio and ya don’t even have my songs ready to be played. When the kid come to the radio, the kid comes to hear her song on the radio”

But it wasn’t just the radio station where she was promoting her album that very moment that didn’t do enough to promote her album that very moment, clearly, it’s the fault of Target and Wal-Mart that her bazillionth rerelease isn’t flying out of the stores:

“It is hard to get the album because the stores basically said that the last few re-releases they had put out did not do well and they didn’t want to take a chance. So, Target and Walmart is not selling the album. Target is actually my biggest retailer — they’ve always been my biggest retailer. They’ve sold the most Nicki Minaj albums ever, so, thank you, Target. But I wish you could’ve sold this one. Best Buy only took limited because they’re like ‘Oh no, we want to play it safe,’ so it’s very difficult and it kind of sets you up to fail.”

Sure Nicki. Maybe you should ask an independent artist how many units they’re moving through Wal-Mart.

Whenever he has time to spare from those efforts he writes (about music, mostly), hosts a radio show and designs graphics for a living. He lives in The Netherlands where he continues to be winning.

    Shes too old to be this dumb. Shes about 30 or 31 years old and speaks and has the mind of a 15 year old. Its amazing that some of these popular rappers act like the teens who follow them.
