Whether you watched the VMAs last night or not, you probably heard that Nicki Minaj threw some MAJOR SHADE at host and walking free-the-nipple slogan Miley Cyrus. The feud began when Cyrus was asked about the recent Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj Twitter feud, and she responded by calling Minaj angry, saying the whole thing was “… very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It’s not very polite.” Nicki Minaj called Miley a b*tch after she accepted her award at the VMAs show last night. It was definitely shocking, and now everyone is asking if, yo, was that sh*t real? Because it could’ve easily been a bit that went wrong, or a shameless publicity stunt so that people would be talking about the VMAs for more than five minutes the next day. And while those are both true, it turns out this feud is actually legit, and WE’VE GOT THE TOO-REAL-TO-NOT-BE-REAL REACTION SHOTS TO PROVE IT!
As you can see in her speech, Minaj does NOT seem like she’s joking AT ALL:
“You made it about you. Not to sound like a bitch, but that’s like, ‘Eh, I didn’t get my VMA’…If you want to make it about race, there’s a way you could do that,” Cyrus told NY Times. “But don’t make it just about yourself. Say: ‘This is the reason why I think it’s important to be nominated. There’s girls everywhere with this body type.’”
She also called Minaj “not very polite.” Minaj is the biggest rapper in the game, she doesn’t have to be freaking “polite.”
Granted, a white person telling a black person when they can be mad about their cultural contribution getting erased when it comes time to hand out recognition and accolades is a bad look. Of course, Minaj is never afraid to speak up, so she did so at the podium while accepting her award.
If you listen to what Nicki’s saying over the sound of the voice in your head screaming “HOLY F**K THAT IS A HUGE BUTT”, you can hear Minaj sweetly thank her pastor before completely dissing Miley Cyrus in the scariest way that’s ever been televised. The proof that this was a real diss, however, is painted on Miley Cyrus’ face as she realizes what Minaj has just said. Cyrus was clearly taken completely off guard from the comment, but actually did a pretty good job of smoothing it over and keeping the show moving afterward…
