Nicki Minaj isn't really one for subtle shade. If you'll recall from the MTV VMAs in August, she'll tell you how she feels if there's an issue (right, Miley Cyrus?).

Still, the rapper got social media talking when Jennifer Lopez opened up the American Music Awards with a big dance number set to a mash-up of this year's hottest songs. When "Anaconda" came on, the camera panned to Nicki who looked rather unimpressed and appeared to throw a side eye like so...

After social media erupted with posts about it, Nicki hit Twitter to clear everything up, responding to a fan who posted a video clip of the moment and wrote, "Damn J Lo....... Nicki Minaj facial expression says it all...We still love u doe." Nicki retweeted it and wrote, "lol says what all? I'm looking at my own face on the screen when I'm looking to the right. I turn Bak & look @ her."J. Lo didn't seem fazed by it either way. The AMAs host not only didn't reference it on any of her social media pages, she went on to slay in nine other outfits during her hosting duties and headed to her after party at HYDE Sunset: Kitchen + Cocktails in Los Angeles.
