I feel like this is a great example of racism in the media. Both of these are reporting on the same event, but TMZ portrays Nicki as the “angry black woman”. First the choose the picture that makes Nicki look like she’s attacking, while Buzzfeed used a picture taken seconds before but portrays Nicki as much less aggressive. Then TMZ goes on to use buzzwords like “explodes” and then includes “You Bitch” in the headline, all to make Miley seem like the victim and to demonize Nicki. It’s the little things like this that change the story and leaves Nicki as the villain and lets Miley escape scandal unscathed. The same thing happened with Nicki and Taylor’s made-up “feud”.

What I've learned about the VMA's without actually watching it

● Nicki Minaj has cured the sick and made the blind see again
● Miley Cyrus is dead because Nicki fucking slayed her racist ass
● Taylor Swift and Nicki are on good terms again
● Miley has committed career suicide as well
● Justin Bieber looks like a 40 year old white suburban mom who wants to see the manager
● Kanye West is a good father/human being
● Amber Rose and Blac Chyna are making very powerful statements that go over the media’s head
● Jaden Smith brought a carton of milk to the VMA’s
