Check out the biggest moments from this year’s Video Music Awards. MTV said the clip will be removed from all future broadcasts. 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.
Beginning what seemed to be a pretty standard acceptance speech, thanking her fans and encouraging them to “follow your dreams”, Minaj thanked her pastor before launching into some epic shade.
“This arena tomorrow is gonna be a completely different setup, this stage will be gone”. “The problem was the contradiction”.
“I died for the artist’s opinion”. “I will die for the art, for what I believe in”, he said.
But it appeared there was still a little tension between the two hitmakers later on during the show, when Minaj stepped up to accept the Best Hip-Hop Video award for Anaconda. “Miley what’s good?”
“I lost this award in 2008 and I was fine with it. Whatever!”
Despite Nicki’s fighting words, Miley didn’t let the comment faze her. “It was no big deal!” I just wanted people to like me more.
The fallout from her sexy romp with Robin Thicke made headlines for weeks after the ceremony, leading Miley to spoof the incident on Saturday Night Live.
In an interview last week with the New York Times, Cyrus had accused the rap star of being jealous and said that she had confronted music industry racism the wrong way. On the show, however, rapper ended her issues with Swift at the show: The performers joined forces onstage.
The two had gotten into a bit of a tiff after Minaj grew angry for getting left out of the Video of the Year nominations, believing her video for “Anaconda” was unfairly targeted.
Cyrus then showed a spoof video called “Miley’s Instagram Think Tank”, which featured the pop star being advised by a team of experts about how to post the best Instagram shots.
