It’s been a little over a month since Nicki Minaj menacingly asked Miley Cyrus at the 2015 MTV VMAs “Miley, what’s good?!” after Cyrus criticized her for implying MTV is racist with their VMA nominations. Since then, the two have avoided talking about each other in the press. But now Minaj is speaking about Cyrus again and blasting her for stealing Black culture.
In a new interview with The New York Times, Minaj spoke about her beef with Cyrus over racism in the industry and she accused Cyrus of appropriating Black culture without caring about the actual concerns and issues of Black people.
‘‘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? 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.’’
We couldn’t have explained it better.
But Cyrus wasn’t the only one Minaj took to task for being disrespectful. Read about how she abruptly ended the interview over a question about Meek Mill and Drake after the cut.
