(AllHipHop News) Knowing Nicki Minaj’s tendency not to let even the slightest comment another celebrity says about her go by without responding, it seemed pretty obvious the Queens rapper would address Miley Cyrus’ comments in the New York Times. Minaj just waited until she was on stage at the MTV VMAs to fire back.

Miley made headlines when she called out Nicki for criticizing MTV not nominating “Anaconda” for Video of the Year. The Pop superstar stated, “If you want 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 Times interview also included Miley saying “Nicki Minaj is not too kind.” She also took issue with the online spat between Nicki and Taylor Swift that resulted from Nic’s Twitter rant.
Last night (August 30), Nicki’s “Anaconda” won the award for Best Hip Hop video, and she used her acceptance speech to say a few words about Miley.
“And now back to this b*tch that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press. Miley, what’s good?” said Nicki.
Cyrus replied, “We’re all in the industry, we all do interviews, and we all know how they manipulate sh*t. Nicki congratu-f*cking-lations.” The “We Can’t Stop” singer later appeared to criticize Nicki again when she referred to people needing to get over not winning awards.
Some online users began to wonder if the entire exchange was scripted. Nicki added fuel to that fire when she tweeted out “Lmfaooooooooooooo” almost immediately after walking off the stage.
