Nicki Minaj thinks Miley Cyrus needs to take more of an interest in the issues which affect African/American people because she has adopted black culture in her music. 

The 'Anaconda' rapper branded the 'Wrecking Ball' singer a "bitch" at the MTV VMAs and challenged her use of African/American culture to promote her pop career.

Nicki thinks Miley is wrong to embrace black culture but not be prepared to concern herself with what "bothers" people of colour.

Discussing her remarks at the VMAs, Nicki told the New York Times newspaper: "I saw [Miley] just looking at me, with her face screwed up, and I thought, 'What the?'

"The fact that you feel upset about me speaking on something that affects black women makes me feel like you have some big balls. 

"You're in videos with black men, and you're bringing out black women on your stages, but you don't want to know how black women feel about something that's so important?

"Come on, you can't want the good without the bad. If you want to enjoy our culture and our lifestyle, bond with us, dance with us, have fun with us, twerk with us, rap with us, then you should also want to know what affects us, what is bothering us, what we feel is unfair to us. You shouldn't not want to know that."


Nicki had previously been engaged in a war of words with Taylor Swift after she was snubbed in the Video of the Year category at the VMAs.

At the time Nicki claimed she would have been nominated if she was a "different kind of artist" and said: "Black women influence pop culture so much but are rarely rewarded for it (sic)".

The comments sparked a response from Taylor, who was nominated in the Video of the Year category, and felt Nicki was taking aim at her.

And later, Miley, who fronted the ceremony, slammed the "Starships" hitmaker for her comments.

She said: "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. You don't have to start this pop star against pop star war. It became Nicki Minaj and Taylor in a fight, so now the story isn't even on what you wanted it to be about."
