Here’s Proof That Nicki Minaj Is Not Over Her Feud With Miley Cyrus
When one feud dies, another one reignites.
Nicki Minaj still has some heated words for Miley Cyrus. Months after calling out the “Wrecking Ball” singer at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards for talking smack about her to the press, Minaj is back with an expletives-filled remix that references her now-infamous “Miley, what’s good?” onstage exchange.
On a new version of the Yo Gotti track “Down in the DM,” the rapper spits,
“Then he put his hands in my pants / Felt them thick lips and got wood / He said, ’Kylie, what’s good?’ / I said, ’Miley, what’s good?’ I said, ’Could you pay my bills like O’Reilly? What’s good?’ / I just sit back and observe / All these n****s that I done curved / If it go down in your DM then baby boy, you lucky / ’Cause 99.9% of these fuckboys can’t fuck me”
Minaj also seemingly makes another jab at Cyrus by referencing her frequent use of poorly Photoshopped memes on her Instagram.
“Fuck you mean? / Fuck your little memes / Even Queen Bey had to tell ‘em I’m the queen.”
Trouble between Cyrus, 23, and Minaj 33, began last year when the former told the New York Times that the latter is “not too kind” and shouldn’t have started a feud with Taylor Swift. (For the record, Minaj was calling out mainstream media for not acknowledging black female artists. Swift mistakenly thought Minaj was throwing some shade at her and attempted to clapback by making a bigger fool of herself. Minaj and Swift have since buried the hatchet.)
“What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It’s not very polite,” Cyrus said at the time. “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.”
In October 2015, Minaj slammed Cyrus for cultural appropriation in New York Times magazine, accusing the former Disney Channel star for using people of color as props in her music videos and stage show.
“The fact that you feel upset about me speaking on something that affects black women makes me feel like you have some big balls. 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?” Minaj argued. “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.”
Your move, Miley.
