Last night was a night of surprises and moments many of us will never forget. One of those moments was when Nicki Minaj called out Miley Cyrus after winning “Best Hip Hop Video.” After thanking her fans and her pastor (no one knows why she did that), she also had this to say:
“And now, back to this bitch that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press. Miley, what’s good?”
While everyone didn’t know what to do, including Cyrus, she responded with this following quote.
“We all do interviews and we all know how they manipulate s**t. Nicki, congratu-f***in’-lations.”
Many people, including Cyrus, were shocked that Nicki made the comments about her. However, what many people don’t know is that Cyrus did an interview with The New York Times just days before the MTV VMA’s. The “Wrecking Ball” star explained how Minaj was not right for the comments she made, including how she shouldn’t have gone off on Twitter the way she did.
“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,” Cyrus said. “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.'”
Many people don’t realize that it wasn’t Nicki that was going off just to be harsh to Miley. It was because Cyrus decided to open her mouth and express her opinion. Although she was asked a question from a journalist, there was a way that she could’ve answered it without sounding like she is a coward and running her mouth to the press. Yes, Nicki could’ve handled it another way. But, what happens when you are in the moment and you see another person talking about you. What do you do? Not say anything or confront it right then and there? You decide.
