Taylor Swift Will Probably Never, Ever Talk – or Post – About Her Nicki Minaj Feud Again

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West at The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards in LAIn a new interview with NME, Taylor Swift opens up about her VMA feud with Nicki Minaj for the first time in months…sort of.  In July, Taylor called Nicki out on Twitter for her comments about “women with very slim bodies,” thinking it was a personal attack against her.  The tweets kicked off a tense but brief exchange, with Taylor eventually conceding she was in the wrong and then hugging it out with Nicki.

Taylor hadn’t made any further comments about it and managed to dodge the eventual feud between Nicki and Miley Cyrus. It’s been over a month now and it seemed like most people had moved on. But in yesterday’s New York Times Magazine  interview, Nicki was pretty vocal about still holding a grudge against Miley.

NME asked Taylor about her role in the feud.  “I don’t want to talk about it,” she said. She went on to explain that in the future, we can expect the “Wildest Dreams” singer to keep her comments out of social media.  “I send text messages now. If there seems to be some kind of misunderstanding, I go to someone’s management, I get their number and I text them. It’s an important lesson for anyone to learn in 2015.”

The full article will be available in the print version of the free magazine on October 9th.

Azealia Banks Rips Latest Nicki Minaj Comments, Says Nicki’s Feud with Miley Cyrus Really “Isn’t About Race”

Azealia Banks Nicki Minaj Miley Cyrus 2Azealia Banks couldn’t resist jumping into the fray after The New York Times Magazine published new comments by Nicki Minaj slamming Miley Cyrus.

Azealia ripped Nicki on Twitter for turning the “Miley thing into a race issue” involving cultural appropriation only because it was convenient for Nicki to do so, and not because the “Anaconda” singer actually cared about the issue. Azealia also tweeted that Nicki was not a great person to talk about body image, accusing Nicki of getting her curvy figure through ‘enhancement.’

Nicki Minaj Slams Miley Cyrus Again, Shuts Down Interview with The New York TImes Magazine

Nicki Minaj NYT MagazineEarlier today, The New York Times Magazine published an interview with Nicki Minaj in which the “Anaconda” singer clarified her thoughts on Miley Cyrus. Apparently, Nicki’s still pretty miffed at Miley.

To briefly recap, back in August, Miley made some comments to the New York Times criticizing Nicki’s tweets about the VMAs nomination process showing bias in the choices for the Video of the Year Award. Miley essentially said that Nicki’s comments came off as “not too kind” and sounded like they were more about Nicki, herself, than about race.

Of course, during her acceptance speech for Hip Hop Video of the Year at the VMAs, Nicki confronted Miley on live TV with her famous question – “What’s good?” – to which Miley seemed to have no response but to congratulate Nicki on her award and try her best to cut off any bigger discussion or conflict.

But in today’s NYT Magazine cover story, Nicki finally had her say on Miley.

“You’re in videos with black men, and you’re bringing out black women on your stages,” Nicki said. “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.”

However, by the interview’s end, Nicki had grown tired of the NYT Magazine’s preoccupation with arguments and beefs. When asked a leading question about whether Nicki actually “liked” all of the drama between her boyfriend Meek Mill and friend Drake, she snapped and called out her interviewer.

“That’s the typical thing that women do. What did you putting me down right there do for you? … To put down a woman for something that men do, as if they’re children and I’m responsible, has nothing to do with you asking stupid questions, because you know that’s not just a stupid question. That’s a premeditated thing you just did.”

Then Nicki reportedly ended the interview.

We have Nicki’s cover shot for the magazine below.

Do you agree with Nicki’s perceptions of Miley? Also, do you think it was understandable or unprofessional for the rapper to shut down an interview when she was asked a question she didn’t like?

Miley Cyrus Rocked the “SNL” Stage But Mocked Her Own Dreadlock Extensions

Miley Cyrus SNL 3On “SNL” last night, Miley Cyrus did her best to turn two trippy songs – “Karen Don’t Be Sad” and the “Twinkle Song” off of her controversial “Dead Petz” album – into emotional, gripping theater. And she might have actually pulled it off for many viewers – though others no doubt were still scratching their heads at the end of her two sets.

Just by the strength and conviction of Miley’s singing, the pop star made her two musical spots the high-points of an otherwise pretty tame episode of “Saturday Night Live.” Miley performed a powerful live debut of “Karen Don’t Be Sad,” fronting a band composed of band members from the Flaming Lips dressed in furry animal costumes. For her second song, Miley accompanied herself on piano for an equally odd but emotionally raw debut version of “Twinkle Song” that ended with the singer in tears.

For both performances, Miley wore huge hairpieces so large that they went beyond any normal definition of wig. For “Karen Don’t Be Sad,” Miley wore a weird hybrid of blond dreadlocks, braids and decorations that draped to the floor and up her mike stand. But for “Twinkle Song,” the wig was so large that it actually became a massive cover for Miley’s piano that looked like a cross between a nest, cargo net and giant spider web.

You can take a look at Miley’s performances in the videos below.

What did you think of Miley’s performances? Do you think Miley was sending a mocking message to critics with the wigs that she was wearing, or was the look just another part of the trippy theater?
