But who can say what is real and what is fantasy?
In case you missed it, Nicki Minaj went up on stage during the VMAs, and called Miley a big ole bitch. It was one of the more interesting moments in a show full of people trying to be the most interesting moment. Whether or not this "call out" was real has been hotly contested, but a press person from MTV has come out to say, yeah, Nicki does think Miley is a bitch:
It’s real, an MTV press spokesman confirmed to MTV News.
Like really, really real, you guys. As in not a stunt or a trick or a brilliant performance of award-show faux-beef.
We get the confusion. After all, MTV has had some fun in the past with staged stunts. Remember Brüno literally dropping in on Eminem at the ’09 MTV Movie Awards? But Sunday’s throwdown was no such stunt, as our reporters backstage and outside the dressing rooms can also confirm. So consider it official: the Nicki/Miley exchange was unscripted and real.
So, an MTV spokesperson confirmed to MTV news that it was not an MTV stunt? Pretty suspicious. This is why we need outside regulators for televised music, or there will never be any honesty in showbiz.
