The last direct tweet asking Miley what's good hasn't even been sent yet, but Nicki Minaj is already reigniting the beef born out of this year's VMAs.
Returning to the scene of the crime (the New York Times, in which Cyrus called Minaj "not very polite") one month later, Minaj gives her version of the events leading up to the you-know-what. "'I saw [Cyrus] just looking at me, with her face screwed up, and I thought, What the!," she said. Cue savage meme, then "Don't play with me, b*tch" mouthed into a mute mic, then the revelation that Cyrus's appropriation of black culture had been on her mind for some time.
"The fact that you feel upset about me speaking on something that affects black women makes me feel like you have some big balls," she said. "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."
It's only a matter of time before we get a response from Camp Cyrus, so take a seat and get comfortable—(nuclear) winter is coming.
