While onstage to accept Best Hip-Hop Video for “Anaconda,” Nicki Minaj clapped back to Miley Cyrus’s comments to the New York Times, moments after forgiving Taylor Swift. It was just as uncomfortable (and maybe scripted?) as you’d expect.
“Don’t play with me, bitch.”
Miley’s offscreen reaction:
Update: EW reports that Nicki’s comments were not staged.
Update No. 2: MTV, via MTV News, has also confirmed that Nicki’s words for Miley were 100 percent unscripted.
