Did Miley Cyrus just call out Nicki Minaj? Yep!

During a recent interview with The New York Times, the pop star and host for Sunday night’s MTV VMAs responded to Nicki Minaj’s Twitter rant following last month’s announcements for the award show’s nominees.

Nicki expressed her disappointment via Twitter that her video for “Anaconda” or “Feeling Myself” did not get a MTV Video Music Award nomination for Video of the Year. She went on to suggest that “If I was a different ‘kind’ of artist, Anaconda would be nominated for best choreo and vid of the year as well.” She also added, “If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year.”

Taylor Swift, who was nominated for Video of the Year, took offense to Minaj’s comments which started a mini Twitter feud. But according to Miley, Minaj’s comments were not “very polite.”

“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,” Cyrus told NY Times. “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,” she says.

“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 VMA’…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.'”

That’s when she added:  “What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It’s not very polite.”

The MTV VMAs are set to air on Sunday at 9 p.m. with an opening act by … Nicki Minaj. This should be interesting.

Reports: Chante Moore Accused Of Financing New Album With Stolen Money

Published

Looks like Chante Moore has got some explaining to do!

The “Chante’s Got A Man” singer is being looped in a messy fraud and racketeering case that essentially led to two men claiming they were defrauded out of $3.6 million.

According to reports, the former “R&B Divas: LA” star knowingly accepted money that was fraudulently obtained by a criminal enterprise and using it to produce her latest album and artificially inflate her sales.

The two men are have filed a lawsuit and claim the defendants used some of their money to buy Moore plane tickets for her musical tour, lavish her with gifts, fund the production of and marketing campaign for her seventh album, “The Rise of the Phoenix,” and even to “pay off her significant personal debt.”

They also claim their money was used to open a hair bar in Georgia, and buy a house.

The plaintiffs say Moore knew the money was obtained illegally and the investments made into her career “were designed in whole or in part to conceal or disguise the nature, the location, the source, the ownership, and the control of the proceeds” of the alleged illegal activity.

It gets even messier though. The two men also claim the money was used to “artificially enhance” her album sales through iTunes purchases. Since they believe their money was used to “directly used to finance the launching of Moore’s latest resurgence effort with her new album, including all advertising and marketing efforts put forth therewith,” they believe they are entitled to any profits from the record.

If you’re wondering what Moore has to say about the situation, she is denying the allegations and wants the case thrown out.

Back in July we caught up with Moore who gushed about her new album and not feeling pressure to stay relevant in the changing music climate.
