Many have been asking the same question since Nicki Minaj called out Miley Cyrus at the VMAs. Was the onstage fight real?
Some think that it was all a pre-planned setup, because Nicki seemed to flash a little smile right after addressing Miley. Others, like us, have felt that Nicki’s smile was more likely in response to the audience’s reaction than to anything else.
Today, MTV released clips from secondary video feeds that show the instant reactions of both Miley and her family. To us, the feeds seem to suggest Nicki’s attack was very real and unscripted. In the first feed, when Nicki initially calls out Miley, it looks for a moment as if the VMAs host has been punched in the gut. And it appears that, as Miley quickly recovers her composure and begins to respond, Nicki can be seen mouthing the word “b*tch” again about her.
The second feed showing the Cyrus family also suggests that the confrontation was unplanned. While it takes a few seconds for the camera to come across her family in the audience, when it does, the resulting video clip shows Miley’s entire clan looking surprised.
With this new footage, do you think that the feud was real or staged? Do these new video feeds change your opinion about what happened at the event?
