Miley, what’s good?! Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj may still be in a feud, but they had the same thing in mind when it came to their Halloween costumes.
Both pop stars dressed up as princesses this Halloween. It looks like Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj had the same thing in mind when it came to their costumes.
Miley Cyrus gave an interesting twist on her Cinderella costume. She referred to herself as “Cindersmelly” on her Instagram page. Cyrus wore Cinderella’s classic silvery blue ballgown, but with a marijuana joint in her mouth. Instead of going out for Halloween this year, Cyrus opted to stay in with one of her many dogs.
As for Nicki Minaj, she referred to herself as a “fairy fking princess” on her Instagram page. The rapper wore a sparkly tiara with a cleavage-baring rhinestone bodice and white tutu. Minaj completed her fierce look with a wand and killer black lace-up boots.
In early October, Nicki Minaj explained to the New York Times as to why she called out Miley Cyrus at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. That’s when the Pinkprint rapper infamously asked the Dead Petz singer, “And now back to this b***h that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press. Miley, what’s good?”
Nicki was referring to Miley’s interview with the New York Times, in which she called the rapper “not polite” and “just about herself.” This was in reference to the rapper’s tweets over her frustrations with being snubbed for Video of the Year at the 2015 MTV VMAs.
“And it’s not anger like, ‘Guys, I’m frustrated about some things that are a bigger issue. You [Nicki Minaj] made it about you. Not to sound like a b***h, but that’s like, ‘Eh, I didn’t get my VMA.’ If you wanted 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.'”
The reporter explained to Cyrus that that was the point of Minaj’s tweets over the summer, which sparked an important conversation about racism in the music industry. But the “Wrecking Ball” singer still didn’t get it.
Nicki explained to the New York Times the reason why she called out Miley at the live awards show. She addressed the pop star’s cultural appropriation during her Bangerz era, in which she collaborated with hip-hop musicians and twerked on stage in various performances.
“The fact that you feel upset about me speaking on something that affects black women makes me feel like you have 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.”
A slew of pop stars weighed in on Minaj’s argument. Taylor Swift took Minaj’s comments as a personal attack and accused the rapper of “pit[ting] women against each other.” Even Katy Perry jumped in and accused Swift of “capitaliz[ing] on the take down of a woman.”
