By now most of you have probably seen the footage of Nicki Minaj brutally dissing Miley Cyrus following her acceptance of the award for Best Hip-Hop video at the MTV Video Music Awards.
If by chance the whole thing has passed you by, feel free to check it out below, but be warned, it definitely contains some NSFW language:
Yeah, I think we can all agree that that was damn brutal!
The diss came after an interview Miley did recently, where she was asked her opinion on the issues Nicki has with the VMA nominations. While Miley tried to turn most of the blame on the media, she also slammed Nicki pretty hard:
"What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It’s not very polite. I think there’s a way you speak to people with openness and love. You don’t have to start this pop star against pop star war. It became Nicki Minaj and Taylor in a fight, so now the story isn’t even on what you wanted it to be about. Now you’ve just given E! News 'Catfight! Taylor and Nicki Go at It.'”
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.'"
Ouch. So, not one to take things lying down, Nicki got her own back with her comments at the VMAs.
Following the awards, a clip of Miley's supposed shocked reaction to the comments went viral, with over 2 million loops on Vine.
However, as more and more people question the authenticity of the entire exchange at the VMAs, MTV has come out with the full, unedited footage that shows what Miley's actual response to Nicki's comments was. Spoiler alert, she doesn't look anywhere near as shocked as the Vine from above would have you believe:
Apparently the comment that actually made Miley mouth "what?" at, was during an earlier part of Nicki's acceptance speech when she thanked her "epic" fans. In fact, Miley didn't even seem phased at Nicki's comments, flinging back a pretty sassy retort almost immediately, replying:
"We’re all in this industry. We all do interviews and we all know how they manipulate shit. Nicki, congratu-fukin-lations."
To which Nicki seemed to mouth back "bitch." Eek!
But while Miley managed her surprise, her family certainly didn't hide their responses quite as well. Check out their faces courtesy of MTVs cameras:
Damn, momma Tish is in some shock! Also, how good is Nicole Ritchie's reaction in the row in front of them!
But while Miley's real reaction may have been a little more cool, calm and collected than we first initially thought, MTV has still confirmed that the Minaj-Cyrus beef was 100% real. Sheesh, one thing is for sure - even 31 years after the VMAs were first held, they can still be counted on to bring the drama year after year!
