Given the heated tensions running rampant between a few conflicting parties in the music industry as of late, the folks in charge of seating arrangements at the 2018 MTV VMAs had quite a task on their hands.
Earlier reports state that security was also on high-alert in preparation for former flames Nicki Minaj and Safaree, ensuring that they stay separated during the festivities so that their Twitter blows from a week ago didn’t manifest into something more serious should they bump into one another. Apparently, the staff at the venue’s entrance and red carpet arrivals might have missed that memo, according to Safaree’s recollection in a new video where he points out that he ran into a particular somebody right at the metal detectors.
A photoshopped picture of the 2018 VMAs seating arrangement, placing him in a seat right beside Nicki, actually tickled him.
Safaree leaves Nicki’s name out of it, but plays an obvious game of “guess who?” with his Instagram followers while explaining the metal detector exchange. “So, what are the odds when I go through the metal detector, as soon as I walk through, I look to my left…guess who’s walking through the metal detector next to me?” he asks in the video. “I say ‘Hi,’ guess who looks at me like I’m stupid?”
His hilarious outburst pretty much tells viewers all they need to know about who that anti-social metal detector neighbor was.
