In case you missed it: pop star Miley Cyrus was interviewed right before her Video Music Award Hosting gig, and she had a lot of trash to talk about Nicki Minaj:
“I think there’s a way you speak to people with openness and love. You don’t have to start this pop star against pop star war. It became Nicki Minaj and Taylor in a fight, so now the story isn’t even on what you wanted it to be about. Now you’ve just given E! News ‘Catfight! Taylor and Nicki Go at It.’ I know you can make it seem like, Oh I just don’t understand because I’m a white pop star. I know the statistics. I know what’s going on in the world. But to be honest, I don’t think MTV did that on purpose.”
Well, last night Nicki Minaj won a VMA for her "Anaconda" video, in the Best Hip-Hop Video category, and she took her moment to let Miley know how she feels:
If you're wondering what Miley Cyrus' face looked like before they cut to her, it can best be described as, "Oh, f*ck no.":
And here's Rebel Wilson in the background being like, "Sweet lord!":
Can you imagine being dressed like this:
And having to come up with some serious response to Nicki Minaj in front of the entire world? It's like being caught with your pants down, except you deliberately didn't wear pants. She dealt with it as well as she could, in the five seconds before she had to get back to that teleprompter, saying: “Hey, we’re all in this industry, we all do interviews and we all know how they manipulate shit. Nicki, congratulations.”
And here was her inner monologue: "Deep breath. Exhale. Cue the next stupid thing. Why am I wearing this? Wait a sec. I'm mad."
That's when she threw some more darts Nicki's way ,about how losing at the VMAs isn't a big deal, they're just an award. PERSEVERE, LIKE MILEY DOES, NICKI MINAJ! Nicki had just won an award, and her problem with the VMAs as she expressed it had to do with racism, which isn't something Miley Cyrus has persevered against. But when you're wearing a giant pair of red lips over your vagina on stage, any distraction from the issue at hand is probably welcome.
