Okay, I’m not a fan of Miley, and I’m all for Nicki standing up for herself against a perceived threat, but did y’all even read the interview?
She’s not wrong. When you make something about yourself, it has much less impact than if you make it about an entire group of people. “There’s girls everywhere with this body type.”
The only problematic thing she actually said was this:
Which, by the way, is also not wrong. Nicki is a boss ass bitch, and sometimes that means being perceived as rude. But sometimes it also means derailing the point you were trying to make in the first place.
And y’all not even talking about Taylor Swift’s involvement in all of this. Probably because she’s your resident fave.
Nicki is also the only female rapper to ever win six BET Hip-Hop Artist of the Year awards six years in a row, so, you know, maybe she’s a little more pissed about not winning this particular award rather than not being able to represent girls who don’t have slim bodies.
And personally? If someone had called me a bitch on national television, I would have torn them a new asshole. But no one’s talking about how Miley handled it: “We’re all in this industry. We all do interviews. We all know how they manipulate. Nicki, congratulations.”
Miley doesn’t deserve the hate she’s getting, and I think somewhere inside, you all know that.
But then again:
