The Inside Story Behind The Beef That Rocked The MTV Video Music Awards!
“And now, back to this bitch that had a lot of stuff to say about me the other day in the press … Miley what’s good?”
And with that, Nicki Minaj put MTV Video Music Awards Host Miley Cyrus on blast, rocking and shocking the VMAs with a moment of tension on stage that had everyone shaking. So what is this beef about? The flare-up stems from AN INTERVIEW THE NEW YORK TIMES CONDUCTED WITH MILEY
in which the reporter was clearly looking for a story, and it would appear Miley was all too willing to oblige.
Here is the transcript of the controversial interview that has touched of music’s newest feud:
NYT; What did you make of the Nicki Minaj. controversy around the V.M.A.s — that she was upset “Anaconda” wasn’t nominated for Video of the Year?
MILEY: I saw that. I didn’t really get into it. I know there was some beef. I don’t really know. There’s a way to talk to people …
NYT:Do you know what she said?
MILEY: She was saying that everyone was white and blonde that got nominated, I heard? And then Taylor Swift butted in.
NYT: She may have alluded to “Wrecking Ball” also, saying that when a naked white girl breaks a Vevo record she gets nominated.
MILEY: I didn’t follow it. You know what I always say? Not that this is jealousy, but jealousy does the opposite of what you want it to — that’s a yoga mantra. People forget that the choices that they make and how they treat people in life affect you in a really big way. If you do things with an open heart and you come at things with love, you would be heard and I would respect your statement. But I don’t respect your statement because of the anger that came with it.
And it’s not anger like, “Guys, I’m frustrated about some things that are a bigger issue.”
You made it about you. Not to sound like a bitch, but that’s like, “Eh, I didn’t get my V.M.A.”
NYT:But she was ——
MILEY: 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.”
NYT: I think she did say that ——
MILEY: 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.”
I know you can make it seem like, Oh I just don’t understand because I’m a white pop star. I know the statistics. I know what’s going on in the world. But to be honest, I don’t think MTV did that on purpose.
NYT: Do you have favorite videos from this crop?
MILEY: I don’t even really know too much of what’s nominated.
NYT: “Anaconda” is nominated for some, “Bad Blood,” Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright,” Ed Sheeran …
MILEY: I like what Kendrick does. I don’t really know many of these. I don’t really listen to this music. I’m probably the most disconnected host in history. I don’t have TV. I have Apple TV. I’m so the 22-year-old that’s like, “Who’s TV?”
