The most unexpected part had to be the spat that went down between her and Nicki Minaj. When the rapper took the stage to accept an award for Best Hip Hop Video, she totally ripped Miley a new one. She straight up called the twerking singer a "bitch."
A lot of people thought the diss was maybe fake, but that so wasn't the case. According to Us Weekly, Nicki's shade was real AF. She was livid that Miley blasted her in the press.
"Nicki was livid with Miley and decided to air her feelings onstage," the insider spilled. Nicki was angry over an interview Miley gave to the New York Times, in which the VMA host criticized the way Nicki reacted to "Anaconda" not being nominated for Video of the Year and her subsequent Twitter "feud" with Taylor Swift.
"The anger was very real and not a pre-planned bit at all." In fact, the source added, MTV staffers "had to be sure Nicki and Miley didn't cross paths for the rest of the evening because they were legitimately worried about a confrontation happening."
