As you can see, Miley returned Nicki’s diss with her own sass and attitude. The 22-year-old was already facing Nicki when the rapper called her a b—-! Not as shocking and hilarious as the fan edited footage originally was. So, what exactly happened during that clip of Miley mouthing the word, “what?”
As MTV revealed, the footage of Miley looking discombobulated actually happened when Nicki was thanking her “epic” fans. It’s so easy to manipulate footage! But at least we all know the truth behind what happened now.
Before the truth came out, there were multiple reports of the hostile moment on stage at the MTV VMAs between Nicki and Miley being real. Some claimed Miley stormed off the stage angrily yelling and that the two were kept far from each other from the rest of the night. If anyone was paying attention at all during the show, they would’ve also seen Nicki giggling after mouthing, “what’s good?” to the host of the show.
Tell us, HollywoodLifers! Were you fooled by the fan edited footage from the night?
