Nicki Minaj Confronts Miley Cyrus Over Race-Related Comments…On Live TV

Published: Monday 31st Aug 2015 by David

In an interview with ‘The New York Times’ Pop purveyor Miley Cyrus used her position as the host of this year’s MTV Video Music Awards to accuse the rapper Nicki Minaj of being an unkind and irrational person.

Why? Last month saw Minaj take to social media to lambast the media for it’s supposed problem with “spicy” music videos when led by fuller figured women of colour.

Miley didn’t agree with her and held nothing back when she weighed in on the matter here.

So there’s no doubt that her fans were surprised when she had all of nothing to say when Minaj confronted her…on live television.

What happened when the rapper called her out as she accepted the ‘Best Hip Hop Video’ award for her ‘Anaconda’ visual at the aforementioned awards ceremony.

‘Bad Blood’ below….

    Sorry but she just comes off petty and insecure, Miley actually had a very good point in that interview and handled herself more than adequately against her. Nicki isn’t a feminist, she’s a nickist. She only 7cares about what affects her directly and will shamelessly use very real social issues to promote herself.

    • rosy August 31, 2015

      Your right this show is predictable Nicki is a old petty Betty at 50 she needs to grow up getting into fights with these young girls for attention big face silicone valley ass her and Taylor Swift fake fight so fake mtv has become the Kanye West and Taylor Swift show predictable

    • Lana Del Fan *HONEYMOON 9.18 August 31, 2015

      Yessss. This reminds me of that fake meme of blac Chyna fighting Kylie Jenner. Lmfao. Nicki, Miley’s like 22. She’s not gonna fight a 33 year old. Have a seat.

  2. G4L August 31, 2015

    Miley’s comments weren’t race related. They were about nickis attitude.
    I don’t want to hear S*** about race from Nicki’s mouth, after she clearly exploited black issues for that Taylor publicity stunt.
    Nicki attacking a girl 10 years younger than her, she looks stupid. Where was this bravery when she was in the same award shows as Lil Kim??

    • Baddie Bey August 31, 2015

      Lol. You didn’t hear her acceptance speech? She dissed Kim. And they were race related because Nicki’s comments were about race. Miley stepped out to critique her first so Nicki has the right to respond in the way she wants. After all, let’s not act as though Miley is unaware of race politics when her producers admitted she asked them for a “black”

      • Christian August 31, 2015

        She has never directly stated Kim’s name. Ever.

      • Lake Erie August 31, 2015

        Yea by far wasn’t talking about lil kim lol. She ain’t stupid..

    • Barb-wire August 31, 2015

      Don’t talk shitt about things you know nothing about, did you actually hear what she tried to say or are you just bandwagoning these stupid Hoez who didn’t get Nicki’s message? And the fucckk you talking about that she’s scared of Kim, bittch clearly you weren’t watching the EBT’s otherwise you would know the shitt that happened.

      • ace August 31, 2015

        She didn’t come directly at kim and I believe kim left right after her performance.she wouldn’t have dare called kim a b**** I’m the same building cause if kim didn’t kick her ass someone in her crew woulda done something.that’s how much love they got for kim.where was young money last night.they ain’t even supporting nicki no more her ego and attitude is awful

    • ace August 31, 2015

      Exactly.she wouldve never called kim or Remy ma a b**** In their presense.she step to moldy.she get no props for that and proved moldy right be acting like a bipolar b on live tv.

    Publicity Stunt!!!

  5. MusicLife August 31, 2015

    Such a publicity stunt

  6. Baddie Bey August 31, 2015

    Sorry to say but the reason this made so many people uncomfortable is because people aren’t used to black people challenging remarks made about them. That’s why Miley felt so brave to say what she said in print but then backtracked in person. She basically said her comments were twisted which means her fans look stupid for defending her. THATs how nervous she was.

    • truth(nicki the reason A.I. is cancelled and Meek playn ha!!) August 31, 2015

      Biitch hush. She made nicki look stupid.

      • R8LATE August 31, 2015

        Miley could never. That B**** backtracked REAL quick when checked. Although Nicki was being joking serious, she basically disrespected the whole Cyrus family lmaoo

    • OMG Logic!!! August 31, 2015

      I sincerely hope you’re joking you uneducated fool. If anything, Whites walk on egg shells any time a Black person is involved because God forbid they be labelled a racist. It’s Black people that challenge everything and anything a White person has to say regardless of the merit it has.

      • Justsayin August 31, 2015

        Your the one turning this into a race thing. I am sure you work with or know some black people and I bet you would never talk like this in front of them. Stop using the internet as a shield that makes it ok for you to voice your obviously racist opinion. Miley got called out for not staying in her lane. The actual issue had nothing to do with her or race. It was the music industry. She just ran her trashy ass mouth and dumb, simple minded racist people like you are eating this up and running with it. Miley just like you got bold because you think that the media or fans have your back. NO,STOP IT AND TAKE A COUPLE SETS PLEASE.

    • bb September 1, 2015

      @ baddie Bey. Ur right moderators of this site wont let us up & like ur comment anymore ….
      but that’s it.
      They getr mad when we fight back.
      I’m glad Nicki didnt are what the meda said and called Miley out.

  7. Selenator *Same Old Love* is coming August 31, 2015

    How old is Nicki again?

    • Demi Slayvato August 31, 2015

      32. That’s the same number of albums Selena has sold.

      • Barb-wire August 31, 2015

        @Slayvato, I don’t wanna scream Kiii.

      • Arianator Barb August 31, 2015

        LMFAO!!!!! Clock ha sis!!!

      • mess August 31, 2015

        Is cool for the summer gold sis?

    • R8LATE August 31, 2015

      I’m tryna figure out what that has to do with anything ??! Pop Fly about me in the press and I’m gonna address you. Period

  8. #TeamTinashe Stan August 31, 2015

    Let’s be real y’all. None of us are here for Miley Virus’ stupid antics but in this case she is right. Miley never came off disrespectful, she was asked a question and she answered it. All she said was that she feels Nicki discounted all the nominees for the BEST VIDEO OF THE YEAR award and especially tried to use a race argument(Which can damage Virus’ career) forgetting that Beyonce was nominated for that same award. And how is she going to talk about female curvy body empowerment when hers isn’t even natural? Not only that, didn’t the original “Anaconda” version have a part degrading “Skinny B*tches?” Girl BYE!

    Bonika Garage needs to get over herself. Always mad when someone isn’t bowing at her feet. SMH!
    HASHTAG: #UncalledFor

    • Baddie Bey August 31, 2015

      So you can say whatever you want as long as it’s said politely? No honey. Your fave is the one who jumped ship as soon as she saw urban wasn’t working for her. Artist my ass.

      • #TeamTinashe Stan August 31, 2015

        Yes. But your just a delusional stan, so stan on. And know your facts before you dish it. Tinashe hasn’t jumped ships. She’s always did Pop, she’ll be doing more uptempo urban pop music as she doesn’t have much when touring.
        I like how you couldn’t say much I just wanted to say LOL hehe!

  9. Janet Xone August 31, 2015

    If a straight man had said a gay artist was irrational for speaking out against a bias none of you would call that gay man rude for confronting the person. Nicki only felt brave enough to speak out against racism after Azealia did but she had every right to ask Miley to explain herself in person instead of behind her back like a passive aggressive person would. Accept it, you don’t like black people defending themselves.

    • MUSICHEAD August 31, 2015

      You’re wayyy off on this one

    • ace August 31, 2015

      She didn’t come directly at kim and I believe kim left right after her performance.she wouldn’t have dare called kim a b**** I’m the same building cause if kim didn’t kick her ass someone in her crew woulda done something.that’s how much love they got for kim.where was young money last night.they ain’t even supporting nicki no more her ego and attitude is awful

    • OMG Logic!!! August 31, 2015

      Asking her in person after the show would be one thing making a spectacle of herself on stage when she knew damn well that Miley wouldn’t be able to respond is quite another. But what can you expect from a plastic clown like Onika, certainly not class or intelligence.

  10. Arianator Barb August 31, 2015

    This whole thing is so fake, I don’t get it. Miley decided to trade her Lil Debbie inspired style for a Brooke Candy inspired style which, for me, is an improvement…I just wish she would stop showing her n******

  11. RoyalBey August 31, 2015

    I dont think it was staged. Why would Miley agree to that? Lol. Yall need to go look at the other camera angle where it show miley reaction as Nicki saying “And now back to this b**** etc…” but i was getting my life

    • Arianator Barb August 31, 2015

      Girl, do you honestly believe that pic of Miley and robin being shown at the exact time virus mentioned it was a coincidence? This whole thing is fake beyond belief

  12. shakira stan August 31, 2015

    I liked how she dragged the white trash

  13. Truther August 31, 2015

    This was so staged, it was cringe worthy watching that bad acting.this was staged to pull in ratings cause last year vma ratings were down

  14. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig August 31, 2015

    Why does miley look surprised, they already rehearsed this scene 5 times before the taping ???? everyone’s forgetting that she started off as an ‘actress’, and Nicki is quite a good actress too (peep the video of teenage nicki throwing a phone at another students face in drama class) #YIKES

  15. Oscar August 31, 2015

    honestly Nicki is way too old for this she really needs to grow up

    • R8LATE August 31, 2015

      “Way too old” to address a b**** for making comments about her in a magazine? Ok

      • OMG Logic!!! August 31, 2015

        Address her on her own time not in front of 3,000 people in a theater while Miley can’t even respond because she’s not on-stage with a mic?

  16. Islandboi80 August 31, 2015

    It was not staged because the video I saw with Miley reactions she was shocked and said what when Nicki said Miley what’s good? It was real

    • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig August 31, 2015

      Acting is a craft.

  17. Mark111 /.\ August 31, 2015

    If you think Miley is a Lohan hot mess and not a well calculated new Madonna that planted this to happen, then you’re the fool. Just think, this girl is not in the news over personal issues, it’s shock for her career. She knows how to play this game, you gave your opinion on an issue that been dead for weeks. Year after year the VMAS play this game, you’re never talking about the performances, awards or winners. Right after you’r talking about the Britney and Madonna kiss, Britney strip show, Madonna humping the stage, MJ awkward kiss, Kanye snatching Taylor’s award and so on. And Nicki fell for it. Girl you won a award you been crying about, sit your fake @ss down. Within two day she’ll be crying on twitter, saying they made the black woman or rapper look bad.
    Like someone said on twitter, Mariah shade your @ss on LIVE TV every other night, and you said nothing… til you logged into twitter that night.

  18. @JanetCIARA_ August 31, 2015

    My first thought was that Nicki should have never responded, Especially in such a public, anger filled display…. I understand the undertones, but there are other ways to win the underhanded racial battle.

  19. #JACKIE August 31, 2015

    Lets just say Nicki knows who to play with. Her 35 year old ass needs to have a 11 seats. 5 for her ego and six for her silicone deformed ass

  20. StrawberryMuffin24 August 31, 2015

    I think this was staged but if not if Miley can dish it out she should be ready to take it back don’t look stupid when confronted!

  21. MUSICHEAD August 31, 2015

    Miley was 100% accurate with her comments about Minaj. Nicki was out of line on Twitter and she was definitely out of line at the VMA’s. U never hear Nicki complain about anything unless it directly impacts her. She then disguises it as a social, racial or gender issue. She is too old to be acting so childish. Grow up!

  22. SMH August 31, 2015

    Figures that the idiots on this site would defend the white s****. I’m no Nicki Minaj fan, but she was 100% spot on for calling out that biitch. White folks can say what they want and be as immature as they want, but when a black person stands up to them all of a sudden there’s a problem. GTFOH. White people need to just STFU when it comes to racial discrimination issues. Miley don’t know what the fuc she’s talking about so she should have just stayed out of it and MINDED HER DAMN BUSINESS. Nicki did the right thing.

    • OMG Logic!!! August 31, 2015

      Oh look, another ignorant, uneducated fool spouting his idiotic racism towards Whites when the issue was about a plastic clown using REAL PROBLEMS to make herself seem like a victim when that wasn’t the case.

  23. gina August 31, 2015

    So Miley can run around flashing her boobs and acting like a ratchet little kid, but Nicki Minaj needs to grow up?? you people are twisted.

    • R8LATE August 31, 2015


    • OMG Logic!!! August 31, 2015

      Which one is 22 and which one is 32 again?

  24. Don’t hate B!TCHES. Nicki is the queen not Heyonce August 31, 2015

    Queen Nicki don’t need no Publicity Stunt!!! save that ???? for ????yonce

  25. JanStan August 31, 2015

    Wait. So Miley calls out Nicki for ‘not being polite’ and acting ‘like Nicki’ in an interview and Nickis response is to get on stage and act like an anger filled ratchet ho possessed by the Babadook ‘like Nicki’? As if her fan base hadn’t already deserted her…

  26. Suicide Blonde August 31, 2015

    I hate when women act like thugs, it’s so unfeminine, typical of black girls, it’s not cool, men don’t like girls who act like this.

    • Nicki Been Bad August 31, 2015

      So it’s ok for someone to say something hurtful about someone as long as they say it nicely? Please, That is cowardly. Miley said Nicki was unkind and mean so why shouldnt Nicki confront her? Not everyone is a coward like you! Only cowards talk about someone when they aren’t there to defend themselves. If Miley is so big and bad she should have the courage to say how she felt to Nicki’s face. No shade, but the problem with today’s world is that people think throwing sly digs and shade is the way to solve problems. It is not. Grow a pair if you dare.

      • JanStan August 31, 2015

        No. Just cause Nicki’ didn’t like what Miley said doesn’t make it not true. It was! And you don’t confront someone who says that your unkind by proving it on National TV by acting an threatening ratchet way. Nicki so desperate for relavancy right now she’ll aparantly do anything for clicks…including humiliating her damn self. Shame. #theplanbackfired

      • JanStan August 31, 2015

        Oh and to answer your question YES it is OK to say something unkind IF ITS TRUE….and you don’t even have to say it kindly like Miley did.

      • Nicki Been Bad August 31, 2015

        Fine. Then be ready to deal with the consequences of your words.

      • Nicki Been Bad August 31, 2015

        Humiliated herself? Darling, let’s not forget who exposed her breast to sell an album. You do not want to talk about public humiliation as a Janet or Miley fan. And another thing, the issue is not whether something is true or not. The issue is that you don’t have the right to govern how somebody reacts to something YOU said about them even if they ARE being irrational. I know many people who say the cruellest of things about people with the prettiest of sentences. It’s cowardly and shouldn’t be tolerated.

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig August 31, 2015

        ‘Typical of black girls’
        NICE TRY but nobody is falling for your bullshît tonight Pauline ???? the sooner everyone stops paying attention to this bigot aka suicidebottom the better. He deliberarely leaves these ignorant comments to get attention and be called a racist. He actually loves starting up these pointless rants that he knows he’s going to lose.

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans August 31, 2015

        Ooh, not grow a pair if you dare, honey! Chile, you got me on this floor Screaming and hollering!

    • Cal3bg September 2, 2015

      I’ve been reading the comments on this site for several years now and can’t help but notice that you are one huge racist asshole. Wish I could filter out your comments.

  27. Molly August 31, 2015

    Nicki is such trash for that.. Like girl you ain’t hard sit tf down… Miley was unbothered while your old ass is crying over awards and faking feuds with Taylor grow up

    • bb September 1, 2015

      Miley is trashy… trailer trash

  28. JanStan August 31, 2015

    No one is saying Nicki couldn’t clap back. She had EVERY RIGHT to and should have. BUT LIKE THAT? OMG girl no no no. Not a good look. AT. ALL.

    • R8LATE August 31, 2015

      oh relax .. she was jokingly serious

  29. R8LATE August 31, 2015

    This isn’t about age and it’s no longer about race. These b!tches were acquaintances. Watch what you say about me in magazines, Period. Cause I will confront you.. while you’re working lmao

  30. Rosie August 31, 2015

    Insecure petty ass b****, LMAO. The kii is that Miley actually made a good point in that interview but nope, Onika had to make it all about herself, even when she won the VMA that she was complaining about in the first place. Therefore, in turn, proving the point in the article And of course these stupid ass SJW broads on Twitter/Tumblr are going to agree with her because ~racism””!! slay black feminist queen!!!18
    I don’t even like Miley but damn.

  31. JT August 31, 2015

    “Race-related?” So very responsible of you to play the race card and further divide people in our country.

    That was sarcasm: You’re disgusting.

  32. Thando September 1, 2015

    I have read what Miley said and I overwhelmingly agree with Miley. Anaconda has NOTHING to do with feminism because feminism is not about women making themsleves sexually consumable by men because they have hour-glass figures that’s purely s**.

    What this is about is Nicki’s ego and how her ego could not stand not being nominated for an award. The narcarssistic parasite that drives her career as a celebrity needs to be fed by awards. Miley (a white young women) made a very valid point that clearly upset Nicki which that if you want to speak on or about issues of Negro or Afro Feminism a video like anaconda is NOT the way to do it.

    The anaconda video is about the attention appeal s** gets so that she get financial success for her music (which is her job). Sexually of thick women HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH AWARDS, like NOTHING. You can’t award feminism or sexually but you can however award s**. There is wisdom in being able to decipher the difference.
