At the mention of Miley Cyrus’ name, Nicki Minaj suggested a certain someone ‘disrespected’ her and looks like a raw chicken. Fans are convinced the shade was aimed at Miley, whom she had beef with in 2015!
Miley Cyrus, 26, may have meant no shade with the line “I love you, Nicki, but I listen to Cardi” in her song “Cattitude,” but fans think that Nicki Minaj, 36, still has a bone to pick with the pop star. In the June 21 episode of Queen Radio, someone in the studio brought up Miley’s name and the “Barbie Dreamz” rapper whipped out the shade. “Perdue chickens can never talk sh*t about queens. She disrespected me in a magazine article for no reason,” Nicki said, but did not specifically mention Miley’s name — you can hear Nicki’s interview here.
“Now you coming out with pink wigs, all you b*tches wanna be Nicki,” the Queen Radio host later added. Miley’s pop star character on Black Mirror, Ashley O, rocks a purple wig — much like Nicki’s affinity for colorful wigs. Again, Nicki didn’t bring up names, but fans are convinced that the rapper was indeed making a Black Mirror reference. “Omg Nicki stressin’ over a Black Mirror fictional character,” one fan tweeted, while another person tweeted, “Does she know she only uses the pink wig for her role in black mirror…lmaoo nicki sweetie.”
The feud between Miley and Nicki seemed to be buried by 2019. Fans wondered if Miley’s “I love you, Nicki, but I listen to Cardi” line was intended to be shady, but this theory was later debunked. “I don’t think there is beef now anymore,” the Disney alum said of Cardi and Nicki’s longstanding rivalry, and even ventured to say that the two rappers are “both queens” in a May interview on Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp.
Miley’s recent comments sang a much different tune in the days leading up to the 2015 MTV VMAs. As you recall, Nicki’s “Anaconda” video missed out on a nomination for “Video of the Year” and later tweeted, “Black women influence pop culture so much but are rarely rewarded for it” (Miley’s “Wrecking Ball” video took the crown in the same category in 2014). In response to Nicki’s frustration, Miley told The New York Times, “If you do things with an open heart and you come at things with love, you would be heard and I would respect your statement. But I don’t respect your statement because of the anger that came with it. And it’s not anger like, ‘Guys, I’m frustrated about some things that are a bigger issue.’ You made it about you. Not to sound like a b*tch, but that’s like, ‘Eh, I didn’t get my V.M.A.'” She later added, “What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It’s not very polite.”
