Nicki Minaj Blames Target And Walmart For Her Re-Up’s Low Sales!

Uh-oh!

Is Her Minajesty being hand-fed some sour grapes by her beloved Barbs?!

Apparently, Nicki‘s latest album, the re-release of Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded called The Re-Up hasn’t exactly had the warm reception she had anticipated, as it’s suffered from low sales since it dropped on November 19th!

But according to her, it’s by no fault of her own!

During a recent interview, the Trinidadian rapper revealed that many retailers, like Target and Walmart, simply will NOT stock it!

She explained:

“It’s 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 [are] not selling the album. And Target is actually my biggest retailer. They’ve sold the most Nicki Minaj albums ever; thank you Target, but I wish you could have sold this one… it kind of sets you up to fail. At the end of the day I’m happy that I was able to put the music out. The real reason for me to put out The Re-Up is because I wanted to have a bridge between this time and the third album. I wanted people to have music that I really stand by.”

Well, hey!

We’re glad to hear that at least she’s proud of what she accomplished, even though the rest seems to be out of her control!

Such a shame, though!

There’s some really good shiz on her latest, so we sincerely hope that Target and Walmart wise up and start stocking The Re-Up for the remainder of the holiday season!

The Barbs will be coming, whether they’re ready or not! LOLz!

One Direction CLEANS HOUSE At The BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards! Check Out Their Performances HERE!

8 Oct


They may have successfully crossed over into U.S. superstardom, but One Direction is OBVIOUSLY still all kinds of BELOVED by their fans in the UK, where they started off!

The always adorable Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson were in attendance at today’s BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards at the Wembley Arena, not only to perform the title track from their debut album, Up All Night and new single Live While We’re Young, but also to be honored with THREE individual wins at the ceremony for Best Single, Best Album, AND Best Music Act!

As the boys graciously said during one of their acceptance speeches:

“This is absolutely amazing. We have to start off by thanking our incredible fans, it’s been an unbelievable two years for us.”

AH-mazing, indeed! But so well-deserved!

You guys have worked so hard for your success, and we’re so thrilled to see you not only achieving so much, but staying so gracious and appreciated!

Ch-ch-check out their AWESOME performances from the evening (above)!

Yeah! With talent like that, you can’t argue they don’t deserve the accolades!

Now excuse us while we watch them on loop for the rest of the evening!
