She may have quashed her feud with Taylor Swift at the MTV VMAs today, but Nicki Minaj’s war of words with Miley Cyrus still rages on!

As she accepted her award for Best Hip-Hop Video for ‘Anaconda’, Nicki took a break from thanking her fans and her pastor to take a very public dig at VMAs host Miley.

“And now back to this b***h that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press,” she said, before adding “Miley, what’s good?”

The camera then cut to the ‘Wrecking Ball’ singer, who was waiting on a separate stage to present the next award for the Artist To Watch – and she wasted no time firing back.

“We’re all in this industry, we all do interviews and we all know how they manipulate s**t,” she said.

“Nicki, congratulations,” Miley ended her speech.

The two artists have been trading jabs at each other ever since Miley gave an interview to the New York Times where she appeared to criticise Nicki for her much-publicised “pop star against pop star war” with Taylor Swift.

“If you want to make it about race, there’s a way you could do that,” Miley said in the interview, referring to Nicki’s comments about why ‘Anaconda’ wasn’t nominated for Video of the Year.

“But don’t make it just about yourself.”

It seems Nicki wasn’t impressed with that, and the duo’s feud definitely heated up at the VMAs tonight. Check out the awkward moment below:
