Nicki Minaj calls out Miley Cyrus (2015).
It was a battle of the ‘tudes when Minaj took the stage at the 2015 VMAs to accept her award for Best Hip Hop Video. Though the rapper had cleared up any "Bad Blood" with Taylor Swift, she still had unfinished business with host Cyrus. "Back to… this b*tch that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press," she sniped. "Miley, what's good!?"
Days prior to the incident, Cyrus had apparently sparked Minaj's ire when she offered up her opinion on the Taylor/Nicki feud to the New York Times
: "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… you made it about you. Not to sound like a b*tch, but that's like, 'Eh, I didn't get my VMA.'" The "Malibu" singer then quipped, "What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj, is not too kind. It's not very polite."
After Minaj confronted her onstage, Cyrus' aired, censored response seemed "polite" enough. But unedited footage showed her firing back, "Hey, we're all in this industry, we all do interviews, and we all know how they manipulate sh*t. Nicki, congratu-f*cking-lations." Awkward!
