Here's The Real Reason Nicki Minaj Called Out Miley Cyrus At The VMAs

By

Cyrus versus Minaj is just getting started.

Let's do some quick recap.

In late July, Taylor Swift and Nicki got in a very weird and very quick Twitter fight over white privilege and VMA nominations, somehow loosely involving drunk Katy Perry.

A few days later, 2015 VMA host and walking Pixy Stix, Miley Cyrus, gave her two cents on the feud during an interview with The New York Times.

She 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. You don't have to start this pop star against pop star war.

Classic Miley being Miley.

The quote didn't go unread by Minaj, who called Miley out during her acceptance speech at the VMAs.

Then it all stopped.

The VMAs ended, everyone went back to doing his or her own thing and it seemed like this war of egos, words and terms like “Congratu-f*cking-lations” ran its course.

On Wednesday, however, we were reminded nothing is permanent in this world, except mutual hatred over peas in guacamole and society figuring out slutty yet topical costumes for Halloween.

During an interview with The New York Times, which apparently just pokes open wounds in the hope of keeping beef going between pop stars with eccentric fashion senses, Minaj told reporter Vanessa Grigoriadis,

The fact that [Miley Cyrus feels] upset about me speaking on something that affects black women makes me feel like [she has] some big balls. You're in videos with black men, and you're bringing out black women on your stages, but you don't want to know how black women feel about something that's so important? Come on, you can't want the good without the bad. If you want to enjoy our culture and our lifestyle, bond with us, dance with us, have fun with us, twerk with us, rap with us, then you should also want to know what affects us, what is bothering us, what we feel is unfair to us. You shouldn't not want to know that.

Ball's in your court, Miley.

Either defend yourself and say you aren't the optimal example of cultural appropriation or get to twerking/rapping/bonding with Minaj's squad.

Very excited for Katy Perry's drunk tweet in response to all of this.
