Los Angeles - Nicki Minaj called Miley Cyrus out at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) after the 22-year-old said in an interview that the rapper was being a poor sport about not receiving a nomination for video of the year.
After collecting best hip-hop video for Anaconda on Sunday night, Minaj told the audience at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles: "And now back to this bitch that had a lot to say about me a lot in the press. Miley, what's good?"
Minaj's microphone was cut off, and Cyrus fired back with "we all know how they manipulate" words during interviews, referencing a pre-VMAs interview in the New York Times.. Cyrus then stumbled over her words as she tried to read from cue cards about voting for the artist to watch award.
"I lost this award in 2008 and I was fine with it. Whatever! Because it's no big deal. It's just an award and I persevered," she yelled, appearing to look over at Minaj.
She ended with: "Congratulations Nicki."
In the recent interview, Cyrus criticised Minaj for her "pop star war" with Taylor Swift that began in July. On the show, however, rapper ended her issues with Swift at the show: The performers joined forces onstage.
