Sorry Miley Cyrus. It looks like Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift kissed and made up, but now we got some more bad blood. Shit’s going DOWN at the 2015 VMAs…
Fans of drama and epic shade battles across the globe let out a collective sob when it seemed as though this year’s VMAs would be relatively shade free. The most anticipated drama was set to occur between Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift (and company), all of which stemmed from a slew of tweets exchanged between the duos when MTV decided to snub Minaj’s deserving “Anaconda” music video for the night’s big award. Things were hit or miss on social media for a while, but the duo made up. If you thought it was fake, it has officially been revealed that Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift are all good, as the duo opened the VMAs together today. Although these two have kissed and made up, it seems as though Miley Cyrus may now be on the receiving end of Nicki Minaj’s bad side.
The drama stems from some comments that Miley Cyrus made earlier this week when asked about the online beef between the two songbirds. Cyrus seemed to take a stance implying that Minaj was acting out of anger instead of responding to the real racial inequalities that existed in the situation.
She was saying that everyone was white and blonde that got nominated, I heard? And then Taylor Swift butted in. I didn’t follow it. You know what I always say? Not that this is jealousy, but jealousy does the opposite of what you want it to — that’s a yoga mantra. People forget that the choices that they make and how they treat people in life affect you in a really big way. 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. And it’s not anger like, ‘Guys, I’m frustrated about some things that are a bigger issue.’ You made it about you. Not to sound like a bitch, but that’s like, ‘Eh, I didn’t get my V.M.A.’
Nicki Minaj did not take fondly to these comments. After collecting the VMA for Best Hip Hop Video, Nicki Minaj dropped some serious shade to the VMA host. “And now back to this bitch that had a lot to say about me to the press. Miley what’s good” Minaj directed cameras to an awkward looking Miley Cyrus. For what it is worth Miley Cyrus tried to divert the drama, but it didn’t seem to work out. “Hey we’re all in this industry and we all do interviews and we all know how they manipulate things,” Cyrus awkwardly declared before congratulating the rap queen for her win.
Nicki Minaj did not seem to accept Cyrus’s ‘apology’ of sorts, and things have officially gotten (for lack of a better term) REALLY FUCKING AWKWARD. Nicki Minaj seemed justifiably upset in regards to the shade as the camera panned away from her. Things could not have gotten better when Miley was seen in a skit poking fun at Minaj’s boy toy Meek Mill…
It turns out that things may have truly gotten awkward, because rumors are circulating on social media that Miley Cyrus had Nicki Minaj removed from the show. It’s unclear whether or not this is actually true, but popular site @MusicNews_Shade tweeted out the comment after the show.
