Nicki Minaj has remained as quiet as possible while her boyfriend Meek Mill and her friend and label mate Drake were going at each other. While the situation is clearly not ideal, she has to feel some way about it. In her cover story with New York Times she addresses the situation and how she loathes it.

‘I hate it, It doesn’t make me feel good. You don’t ever want to choose sides between people you love. It’s ridiculous. I just want it to be over.’

She added this same sentiment to the contract situation with Birdman and Lil Wayne also. There is one person she felt the need to address…on the MTV Video Music Awards stage and that was Miley Cyrus.

‘The fact that you feel upset about me speaking on something that affects black women makes me feel like you have some big balls,” she said. “You’re in videos with black men, and you’re bringing out black women on your stages, 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.’

She is not the only person that feels Miley Cyrus hast been a big culprit in cultural appropriation, or would be the last. This conversation somewhat connects to Nicki’s idea of what beauty is perceived to be in today’s hip hop.

‘Back in the day, in Hip Hop, the thick girl was glorified. Now the rappers are dating skinny White women. So it’s almost like, ‘Wait a minute, who’s going to tell the thick Black girls that they’re sexy and fly, too?’
