The celebrity drama continues at full speed between Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus days after Minaj called at Cyrus at the 2015 MTV VMAs on Sunday night according to a Wednesday, September 2 report from Us. Many are still asking the question what started the nasty feud between the two entertainers? The epic feud began after Miley threw out some serious jabs about Nicki on Twitter concerning Minaj’s rant over not being nominated because of her race and/or body type.
“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. […] If you want to make it about race, there’s a way you could do that. But don’t make it just about yourself. Say: ‘This is the reason why I think it’s important to be nominated. There’s girls everywhere with this body type.’
“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. What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It’s not very polite. 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.”
Following Nicki Minaj’s win for Best Hip-Hop Video at the VMAs. Nicki decided to take the moment to call Miley out on live TV saying, “You know who I want to thank tonight? My pastor. I love you so much. And now, back to this b—- that had a lot to say about me in the press. Miley, what’s good?” Miley appeared to be a bit shocked at first but recovered quickly firing back, “Hey, we’re all in this industry, we all do interview and we all know how they manipulate s—. Nicki, congratulations.” However, Nicki did not appear to impressed, as the camera cut back to her she was clearly annoyed saying “Don’t play with me, b—-” back at Miley Cyrus as the show continued to roll on.
Immediately following the controversial verbal battle, Miley’s Twitter feed began blowing up with comments using the hashtag #MileyWhatsGood which as been described as the equivalent of “Bye, Felicia!” via the social media. It appears that the Nicki/Miley feud will not be going away anytime soon. In fact a source close to Nicki claims this verbal war could very well become physical according to HL.
“[Nicki] is taking this feud with Miley very seriously,” a source says. “Miley loves to talk s**t and play games but to Nicki this isn’t a joke. Miley needs to watch what she says otherwise there will be hell to pay. If Miley keeps talking crap about her, Nicki will definitely confront her. If she runs into her at a party, she will absolutely slap the taste out of her mouth. Nicki is hard and doesn’t like to be disrespected. Miley needs to take accountability for what she says and just apologize.”
Just how far do you believe Nicki and Miley will take this battle?
