The 2015 VMAs are fast approaching with just days until the battle between popular music’s elite goes down.


Well those who had no intentions of tuning they might just now at least to see if there is any tension between rapper Nicki Minaj and former twerker and this years host, Miley Cyrus.


The child star of the Disney Channel speaks with the New York Times on what can be expected on the awards show, as well as her thoughts on Nicki Minaj’s short lived spat with Taylor Swift.



A few weeks back the Young Money matriarch briefly got into it with the pop princess via Twitter, over what seemed like a misunderstanding as Nicki spoke in her disappointment of her hit single ‘Anaconda‘ being snubbed for the best video of the year nomination.



Check out what Miley’s thoughts are on the situation;


What did you make of the Nicki Minaj controversy around the V.M.A.s — that she was upset “Anaconda” wasn’t nominated for Video of the Year?

I saw that. I didn’t really get into it. I know there was some beef. I don’t really know. There’s a way to talk to people …

Do you know what she said?

She was saying that everyone was white and blonde that got nominated, I heard? And then Taylor Swift butted in.

She may have alluded to “Wrecking Ball” also, saying that when a naked white girl breaks a Vevo record she gets nominated.

I didn’t follow it. You know what I always say? Not that this is jealousy, but jealousy does the opposite of what you want it to — that’s a yoga mantra. People forget that the choices that they make and how they treat people in life affect you in a really big way. If you do things with an open heart and you come at things with love, you would be heard and I would respect your statement. But I don’t respect your statement because of the anger that came with it.

And 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 V.M.A.”

But she was ——

If you want to make it about race, there’s a way you could do that. But don’t make it just about yourself. Say: “This is the reason why I think it’s important to be nominated. There’s girls everywhere with this body type.”

I think she did say that ——

What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It’s not very polite. I think there’s a way you speak to people with openness and love. You don’t have to start this pop star against pop star war. It became Nicki Minaj and Taylor in a fight, so now the story isn’t even on what you wanted it to be about. Now you’ve just given E! News “Catfight! Taylor and Nicki Go at It.”

I know you can make it seem like, Oh I just don’t understand because I’m a white pop star. I know the statistics. I know what’s going on in the world. But to be honest, I don’t think MTV did that on purpose.



Nicki Minaj is set to open the show on Sunday, so we’re going to take a wild guess that this was a truce offer?

Ha! Either way she accepted, guess she wasn’t upset to the point of turning it down, and after all ‘Anaconda’ is nominated in a couple of the other categories.
