Just when you thought that feud between Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj was over, the can of worms has been opened again thanks to the New York Times Magazine: Cluture Issue. The issue features Minaj on the cover and references her spat with Cyrus, but lets bring it back to where it all began.
It was a warm summer day in August when the interview was released with Miley Cyrus talking about how she hadn't followed the Twitter spat between Taylor Swift & Nicki Minaj. Here's the quote:
"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 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. Say: 'This is the reason why I think it's important to be nominated. There's girls everywhere with this body type.' 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."
Minaj called out Cyrus at the Mtv VMAs after receiving an award. Now, two months after the public spat, she's speaking out again to New York Times Magazine, taken from E! Online:
"The fact that you feel upset about me speaking on something that affects black women makes me feel like you have some big balls," the musician said in a cover story for The New York Times Magazine's Culture Issue, out Oct. 11. "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."
Turns out the interview got pretty heated after that and Minaj ended it.
