As part of a long profile in The New York Times, Minaj addressed the continued fallout of the Minaj/VMAs discussion this past summer, which culminated in Minaj defending herself during the MTV VMAs broadcast in August — and calling out Cyrus by saying, “This bitch that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press…Miley, What’s good?”
“I saw [Cyrus] just looking at me, with her face screwed up, and I thought, what the?!’’ she told New York Times. “The fact that you [Cyrus] 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.’”
Elsewhere in the profile, Minaj talked about her power and the fact that you should never ask her if she likes drama. Read the whole thing here.
