Nicki Minaj calls out Miley Cyrus live on stage — and the internet explodes
On Sunday night, the 2015 MTV VMAs kicked off, and it was a weird and wonderful show — Kanye West's speech, Justin Bieber crying, the list goes on — but the evening also proved there may be some bad blood between two female stars.
Nicki Minaj took home the well-deserved Best Hip-Hop Video award, and while on stage she called out Miley Cyrus, referring to her as, "this bitch who had a lot to say about me last week in the press." She then followed up her statement by saying, "Miley, what's good?"
The "Anaconda" hit maker's comments didn't just come out of anywhere, though. Cyrus recently did an interview with The New York Times, in which she was asked to weigh in on Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj's Twitter misunderstanding.
Cyrus said, "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...."
Well, it looks like Minaj does not like her name being dragged through the press, and she's let Cyrus know. And the altercation on stage has since created a social media frenzy, with countless fans taking to Twitter to share their feelings about it.
However, there are also fans who are convinced there's no beef between these two stars, and that it was all for TV ratings.
