6. 2015 MTV VMAs – Nicki Minaj v. Miley Cyrus
Bad girl Nicki and rule bender Miley…can you think of a better cat fight on stage? Exactly, priceless! After Nicki’s beef with Taylor Swift and the two hashing words out on Twitter about MTV’s Video Music Awards’ nominations based on being skinny. Taylor apologized for a misunderstanding on Nicki’s tweet. The two patched things up and even did a duet to Taylor Swift’s hit song “Bad Blood”.
Miley, however, is a whole different animal. During an interview with The New York Times this past week concerning the VMA’s, Miley addressed Nicki’s tweet. Miley stated Nicki as “being not too kind and not very polite.” Nicki was beyond insulted (what else is new…). After receiving the award, Nicki began her acceptance speech by thanking her fans, her pastor and then proceeding to call Miley the B-word for talking about her to the press. So what’s good, Miley? Well, Miley quickly went back at her and said, “We’re all in this industry, we all do interviews and know how they manipulate.” Miley had no problem standing on stage hashing it out and even throwing herself under the bus for not winning the award last year.
Many speculated whether this feud was staged considering how quick Miley responded. It’s almost as though she was expecting Nicki to have “a moment” on stage. Several reports suggest it was not. Nevertheless, this moment is a fail for MTV.
