The 22-year-old “Wrecking Ball” singer, who is hosting the show this year, didn’t like the 32-year-old rapper’s approach.
“She was saying that everyone was white and blonde that got nominated, I heard? And then Taylor Swift butted in,” Miley told the New York Times. “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.’”
She added, “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. You made it about you. Not to sound like a bitch, but that’s like, ‘Eh, I didn’t get my VMA.’”
Miley continued, “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.”
