Miley Cyrus isn't afraid of Nicki Minaj. The twerking singer and upcoming host of the VMAs was pretty open about the female rapper and that infamous fight she had with Taylor Swift on Twitter a few weeks ago.

In July, NIcki went on a Twitter rant about how "Anaconda" was snubbed for a Video of the Year nomination at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, as well as her and Beyonce's song "Feeling Myself."

"If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year," she tweeted. "If I was a different 'kind' of artist, 'Anaconda' would be nominated for best choreo and vid of the year as well."

She also accused the VMAs of body shaming, posting that "black women influence pop culture so much but are rarely rewarded for it."

Miley's not really about all that, though. She claims that Nicki lost focus of the issue at hand. "You made it about you. Not to sound like a b**ch, but that's like, 'Eh, I didn't get my VMA.'"

When Nicki started in on her VMA Twitter rant this past July, Taylor, a Video of the Year nominee, took the attack personal, tweeting, "I've done nothing but love and support you. It's unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot."

"What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It's not very polite. I think there's a way you speak to people with openness and love," Miley told the New York Times.

"You don't have to start this pop star against pop star war. It became Nicki Minaj and Taylor in a fight, so now the story isn't even on what you wanted it to be about."

The former Hannah Montana star also took notice of what people may think about her speaking out on the subject. "I know you can make it seem like, 'Oh I just don't understand because I'm a white pop star,'" she said.

"I know the statistics. I know what's going on in the world. But to be honest, I don't think MTV did that on purpose."
