Miley Cyrus is hosting this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, and with much power comes much responsibility.
The Bangerz singer is planning on having an awards show this Sunday that we can already guess will be filled with controversy, but it looks like her promotion up to it is already controversial.
Miley recently did an interview with the New York Times, where she discussed Nicki Minaj’s snub from the Video of the Year category, and the MC’s reaction on Twitter that ignited a feud with Taylor Swift.
The VMA host said in the interview on the situation:
“If you want to make it about race, there’s a way you could do that. 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.”
She also added in:
“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. Now you’ve just given E! News “Catfight! Taylor and Nicki Go at It.” I know you can make it seem like, Oh I just don’t understand because I’m a white pop star. I know the statistics. I know what’s going on in the world. But to be honest, I don’t think MTV did that on purpose.”
This might not sit well with Nicki’s Barbz, but what are your thoughts on Miley’s points?
