Nicki Minaj calls Miley Cyrus a ‘bitch’ during MTV VMAs acceptance speech – watch

Nicki Minaj hit out at recent comments made by Miley Cyrus at Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards.

Cyrus was hosting this year’s ceremony, with Minaj picking up the Best Hip-Hop video award for ‘Anaconda’.

Miley Cyrus had previously spoken to the New York Times about Minaj’s recent beef with Taylor Swift, saying that it was “not very polite” of Minaj. Cyrus was quoted as saying, “What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It’s not very polite.”

Accepting the award, Minaj said, “And now, back to this bitch who had a lot to say about me the other day in the press. Miley, what’s good?” Cyrus proceeded to suggest that her remarks had been taken out of context, but Minaj seemed to reject Cyrus’ excuses.

Nicki Minaj also buried the hatchet with Taylor Swift at the event. The pair had previously clashed on social media when Swift interpreted Minaj’s criticism of the VMA nominations as a direct insult to her.
