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’.
“You’re in videos with black men, and you’re bringing out black women on your stages, but you don’t want to know how black women feel about something that’s so important? Come on, you can’t want the good without the bad.
“If you want to enjoy our culture and our lifestyle, bond with us, dance with us, have fun with us, twerk with us, rap with us, then you should also want to know what affects us, what is bothering us, what we feel is unfair to us. You shouldn’t not want to know that.”
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.
