Miley Cyrus Says Nicki Minaj Is “Not Too Kind,” Blasts Her VMAs Feud

Nicki Minaj got into it with Taylor Swift in July, after she expressed her anger for being snubbed for a nomination in the MTV VMAs "Video of the Year" category.

Although the two stars made up quickly, the show's host Miley Cyrus isn't feeling the rapper's attitude. In an interview with the New York Times, she revealed that she doesn't agree with Nicki's argument over the VMAs snub... specifically the way it was handled.

"Not that this is jealousy, but jealousy does the opposite of what you want it to -- that's a yoga mantra," she told the paper. "People forget that the choices that they make and how they treat people in life affect you in a really big way. 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."

Nicki claims she was snubbed because she isn't one of the "other" girls, which many interpreted to mean that women of race aren't nominated. "When the 'other' girls drop a video that breaks records and impacts culture they get that nomination," Nicki wrote on Twitter at the time. "If I was a different 'kind' of artist, Anaconda would be nominated for best choreo and vid of the year as well."

Miley feels that Nicki could've made that argument ...without making it about herself.

"If you want to make it about race, there's a way you could do that," Cyrus told the Times. "But don't make it just about yourself. Say: 'This is the reason why I think it's important to be nominated. There's girls everywhere with this body type'...What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It's not very polite. I think there's a way you speak to people with openness and love."
