American Music Awards 2015: Nicki Minaj Throws Shade at Jennifer Lopez’s ‘Anaconda’

Jenny, what’s good?

Jennifer Lopez opened the 2015 American Music Awards by uniting the night’s nominees through the power of montage. Teasing her classic hit “Waiting For Tonight” in the style of a disco ballad x Broadway hybrid, Lopez switched up the pace by coursing through a medley of hits by Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber, and even gave Drake’s “Hotline Bling” dance moves a shot.

Most notable, however, was Nicki Minaj’s shady reaction to Lopez’s “Anaconda” ode.

Jenny must have missed the valuable learning opportunity of Minaj’s clap back at Miley Cyrus when she decided to watch Selena instead of the MTV Video Music Awards.
