Nicki Minaj Burns Iggy Azalea at BET Awards
Could a battle of the former Paper Cover Girls be brewing? ICYMI, Nicki Minaj cast the shadowiest shade on fellow bubblegum rap chanteuse Iggy Azalea last night at the BET Awards. Both artists were nominated for "Best Female Hip-Hop Artist," and despite Azalea's explosively successful year with her Charli XCX collab, "Fancy," and her verse on Ariana Grande's "Problem," the powers that be favored the "Pills N Potions" artist for the fifth year in a row. With the signature tongue-in-cheek sass of "Superhoe," Minaj reminded the crowd during her acceptance speech that her win was a product of her authenticity ("when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it"). Many took this as a dig at Iggy Azalea who is rumored to have used ghostwriters on her songs, though Minaj specifically said she wasn't throwing shade. TBH Iggy and Nicki need to just hug it out and collaborate on a song already. What's up with all this girl-on-girl hate?
