There's A Video Of Nicki Minaj And Ariana Grande Whispering At The VMAs And People Want To Know If They're Shading Kylie And Travis

What's the tea, ladies?

You're probably aware that last night was the MTV Video Music Awards and the celebs were out in full force.

Two of those celebs were besties Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj, who looked like they were having a great time together.

But during the show, a video of the two whispering to each other hit Twitter and whew, the shade looks REAL. Just watch it for yourself.

Tag the Nicki to your Ariana 💕💕💕 #VMAs

People were already perched and ready for some VMAs drama after Nicki hit out at Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner on Twitter when her new album, Queen, debuted at number 2 behind Travis' album, which spent a second week at number 1.

Travis sold over 50K of these. With no requirement of redeeming the album! With no dates for a tour, etc. I spoke to him. He knows he doesn’t have the #1 album this week. I love my fans for the #1 album in AMERICA! I’ll explain on #QueenRadio 4 albums in, #1 in 86 countries ♥️ https://t.co/CiYEuczgm3

Nicki didn't seem to be happy with the fact that Travis had been selling merchandise to help boost his album sales, which were then promoted on Kylie's Instagram.

I put my blood sweat & tears in writing a dope album only for Travis Scott to have Kylie Jenner post a tour pass telling ppl to come see her & Stormi. lol. Im actually laughing. #Queen broke the record of being number 1 in 86 countries. Thank Jesus & thank you to my fans.

And the tension seemed to reach a boiling point when Travis and Kylie, who were originally sitting behind Nicki at the VMAs, apparently requested a last minute seat change and were moved to the other side of the room to sit with Cardi B and her sister.

So when the video emerged, everybody automatically assumed who Nicki and Ariana were spilling tea about.

Ariana and Nicki were def talking mad shit about Travis omg look at the way they were side-eyeing him at the end I’m weakkkk 💀 #VMAs https://t.co/wNB5rYUyeb

And of course, it wasn't long until the memes inevitably started.

Ariana : cardi said hi to me should i speak back Nicki : i'm gonna take you off bed and put selena gomez on it

Ariana: you see Kylie in that raincoat? Nicki: ..where’s stormi so i can sit on her #vmas


But that's not even the best part, because when you watch the longer version of the video, it looks EVEN SHADIER. That's a whole lot of eye rolling.

But that wasn't the only shady part of the night. Another video hit Twitter showing Nicki reacting to Tiffany Haddish's praise of Camila Cabello, and she looked far from impressed.

Of course, if you watched the show you'll have seen that Tiffany went on to throw some shade at Fifth Harmony, which Nicki wasn't standing for. When she went up on stage to collect her award, Nicki straight up said: "And Tiff, don't be coming for Fifth Harmony, because Normani is that bitch."


It looks like it was all going down! Now, if any of you happen to be an expert in lipreading, slide into my DMs and let me know what Nicki and Ari were talking about.
