Nicki Minaj has finally revealed what led her to call out Miley Cyrus at the VMAs last month.


Back in August, Miley offered her take on Taylor Swift’s infamous Twitter row with Nicki, which came when the ‘Anaconda’ rapper suggested that her music video hadn’t been nominated in the Best Video category at the VMAs because of her race.

After winning in another category at the ceremony, which Miley was hosting, Nicki stunned viewers when she said: “And now back to this bitch that had a lot to say about me in the press. Yo Miley, what's good?”

Nicki has now opened up about what led to the incident, in a new interview with the New York Times, also addressing the cultural appropriation which Miley has been accused of repeatedly, since the release of her single ‘We Can’t Stop’.

After Taylor’s unfortunate Twitter faux pas last August, Nicki was quick to insist that there were no bad feelings between the two of them, later inviting the ‘Blank Space’ singer to join her on stage when she performed at the VMAs.
