Do Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj Still Have Beef?
When it comes to the world of pop music, celebrity feuds are nothing new. From Taylor Swift vs Kanye West to Katy Perry vs Taylor Swift, there has been no shortage of drama in the industry. One feud that caught the attention of fans and media alike was the infamous clash between Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj.
The Origin of the Feud
The feud between Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj began in 2015 at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs). It all started when Nicki called out Miley during her acceptance speech for Best Hip-Hop Video. She criticized Miley for her comments in an interview where she seemed to dismiss Nicki’s frustration over not being nominated for Video of the Year.
Nicki’s now-iconic words, “And now back to this b**** that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press. Miley, what’s good?”, immediately went viral and set off a firestorm of speculation about their relationship.
The Heated Exchange
Following Nicki’s call-out at the VMAs, Miley responded in an interview with The New York Times. She claimed that her comments were taken out of context and denied any ill feelings towards Nicki. However, her response only seemed to escalate the situation.
In another interview with The Fader, Miley further fanned the flames by suggesting that Nicki was not being a “good role model” for young girls due to her outspokenness on social issues. This comment did not sit well with Nicki or her fans.
Fast forward to today, it seems that both Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj have moved on from their feud. In 2019, Miley released her song “Cattitude,” which featured a verse from RuPaul’s Drag Race alumna, Brooke Candy.
In the song, Miley references her past feud with Nicki by rapping, “I love you, Nicki, but I listen to Cardi. “
Furthermore, in an interview with Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio, Miley admitted that she regrets the way she handled the situation and expressed her respect for Nicki as an artist.
While the feud between Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj may have been intense at one point, it appears that both artists have put it behind them. They have moved on to focus on their respective careers and have even expressed mutual respect for one another.
As fans, it’s important to remember that celebrities are human too and are bound to have disagreements. What matters is how they choose to resolve those conflicts and move forward. Hopefully, this is a lesson we can all learn from.
