Miley Cyrus gave the MTV Video Music Awards a shocking moment, when she engaged in a verbal spat with Nicki Minaj on the VMA stage.
The feud between Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj started when Cyrus, 22, weighed in on the Twitter exchange between Minaj and Taylor Swift over the VMA nominations. Miley Cyrus told a New York Times reporter, “What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It’s not very polite.”
On the VMA stage, Nicki Minaj, after accepting the award for best hip-hop video, called out Miley Cyrus and said that the host is a “b***h that had a lot to say about her to the press.”
Miley Cyrus, as if she expected the diss from Minaj retorted, “Hey, we’re all in this industry, we all do interviews and we all know how they manipulate s***.”
“Nicki, congratulations,” Miley Cyrus added.

But apparently, Miley Cyrus was not done with Nicki Minaj, because the controversial singer threw another jab while she was presenting the Video of the Year award. “The past losers of the award have still gone on to make their mark on the VMA stage – me. I lost this award and was fine wit it, because it’s no big deal. It’s just an award,” she pointedly said.
Sources close to Nicki Minaj are saying that the heated exchange between the rapper and Miley Cyrus was not staged at all. “Nicki is taking this feud with Miley Cyrus very seriously,” the insider said, “Miley Cyrus needs to watch what she says or there will be hell to pay.”
Nicki Minaj’s camp is not buying Miley Cyrus’ claims that the media twisted her words. The source said that Miley Cyrus should be responsible for what she says to other people and should just apologize for dissing Minaj. Miley Cyrus thrives on controversy but she should know by now that Nicki Minaj is not someone to be messed with, the insider added.
Her feud with Nicki Minaj isn’t the only shocking thing about Miley Cyrus’ hosting stint at the 2015 MTV VMAs. She wore the most outrageous and “barely there” outfits throughout the show and used profane language without hesitation. Miley Cyrus also had a wardrobe malfunction that was caught on cam for the whole world to see.
