Nicki Minaj accepted the award for Best Hip-Hop Video for "Anaconda" at the VMAs earlier tonight and gave a pretty great speech. But near the end of it, she had a few words to say about Miley Cyrus, who recently spoke about her in a New York Times interview about her controversy with Taylor Swift. Simply put, don’t speak bad about Nicki. Whether if she was serious or not, the above video shows her throwing some serious shade at Miley.
The VMAs host was actually pretty shook when it happened. From people in attendance, the whole thing wasn't stage and Nicki was really upset. Let's hope this doesn't get any nastier.

That Nicki Minaj vs. Miley Cyrus onstage verbal spat WAS NOT STAGED, an MTV rep just assured me, for what it's worth. #VMAs— Brian A. Hernandez (@BAHjournalist) August 31, 2015
