“Thank you so much, and now back to this bitch who had a lot to say about me in the press, Miley what’s good?”
Is this the VMAs or WWE?
Nicki Minaj fired shots at Miley Cyrus on live television. Miley seemed caught off guard and pulled out the ol’ editing defense.
“Hey we’re all in this industry, we all do interviews, and we all know how they manipulate shit,” she replied.
As well all know Nicki Minaj felt snubbed at the VMAs for not being nominated for video of the year. She tweeted earlier this month, “If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year.”
Taylor Swift felt personally attacked by her comment and fired shots back: “I’ve done nothing but love & support you. It’s unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot.”
Eventually Swift apologized as she misinterpreted the comment. But without Katy Perry stepping in. “Finding it ironic to parade the pit women against other women argument about as one unmeasurably capitalizes on the take down of a woman…”
Miley Cyrus took it upon herself to tell the New York Times about how she felt about the incident.
“Jealousy does the opposite of what you want it to… If you do things with an open heart and you come at things with love, you would be heard and I would respect your statement. But I don’t respect your statement because of the anger that came with it.
What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It’s not very polite. I think there’s a way you speak to people with openness and love.”
Anyway, Miley Cyrus had the last few words. “It’s the artist to watch award, the past winners have gone on to incredible success. And the past losers of the award have still gone on to make their mark on the VMA stage, I lost this award back in 2008. And I was fine with it, whatever, because it’s no big deal, it’s just an award, and I persevered.”
In the moments after Minaj’s remarks, the rapper tweeted “Lmfaooooooooooooo” with a trio of heart-eye emoji.
Is it really just an award? Does Nicki Minaj have the right to be upset over Miley’s comments? Watch the Miley Cyrus Nicki Minaj fight at the VMAs 2015 and let me know in the comments!
