Los Angeles: Rapper Nicki Minaj blasted host Miley Cyrus while accepting her Best Hip-Hop Video trophy at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards for the comments that Wrecking Ball hitmaker had made about her.
Cyrus, 22, had earlier said in an interview that the 32-year-old Anaconda hitmakers's comments about the show's nomination process were not polite, reported Entertainment Weekly.
Minaj took to the stage to accept her award and said, "You know who I want to thank tonight? My pastor. I love you so much. And now, back to this b**** that had a lot to say about me in the press. Miley what's good?"
Cyrus, who won Video of the Year in 2014 for Wrecking Ball, was apparently caught off-guard by Minaj's comments.
"We're all in this industry. We all do interviews. We all know how they manipulate. Nicki, congratulations," she said.
The When I Look At You singer said she lost an award in 2009 but was fine with it and congratulated Minaj. Moments after her remarks, the rapper tweeted: "Lmfaooooooooooooo" with a trio of heart-eye emojis.
According to a source the confrontation was real and not staged.
