Apparently, Nicki Minaj doesn't think Iggy Azalea is so fancy.

The "Pills n Potions" rapper threw major shade at Iggy when she picked up the BET Award for best female rapper, for which the "Fancy" rapper, Eve, Charli Baltimore and Angel Haze were also nominated.

"What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it," Nicki said when she reached the podium. "No, no, no, shade, no, no, shade," she continued, throwing even more shade.

According to, there have been plenty of rumors that Iggy's songs are written by ghostwriters, including T.I., and the shade Nicki was throwing was meant specifically for her.

That was made even more clear when Nicki started posing for the cameras and dancing seductively when the camera panned to her during Iggy's performance of "Fancy" at the awards show Sunday night.

Once she was done giving a strong side eye, Nicki finished up her acceptance speech by randomly talking about how she really thought she was going to die "the other day."

"I was saying my prayers to die and I didn't even want to call the ambulance because I thought it was going to be on TMZ," she said. "And I realized I don't care anymore what anybody say. I'mma do me and I hope BET continues to honor authenticity."
