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.

It was also a time for Ri Ri to meet her “fav”, Ms. Toni Braxton!

We have to admit though, Braxton came to serve!
