The rapper launched an attack on the ‘Wrecking Ball’ singer as she collected the award for Best Hip Hop Video at the ceremony at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
The pair have been at odds after Miley hit out at Nicki in an interview, following Nicki’s massive Twitter rant for not being nominated for Video Of The Year, which also saw her embroiled in a row with Taylor Swift.
Miley told The New York Times: “What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It's not very polite.
“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 VMA’… if you want to make it about race, there’s a way you could do that. But don’t make it just about yourself,” she added.
Taking Miley to task live on stage, Nicki ordered her to explain herself.
“And now back to this b**** that had a lot to say to me in the press. What's good?” she said.
Trying to play things down, Miley replied: “We are all in this industry, we all do interviews and we all know how they manipulate s***. Nicki, congratulations.”
As Miley then tried to carry on presenting the show, Nicki could be seen mouthing angry sentiments.
However, Nicki proved she's not one to hold a grudge after she called off her row with Taylor Swift.
The pair performed a duet together at the ceremony, after they came to blows on Twitter last month.
See, isn't it just nicer when everyone gets along, girls?
