Miley makes it clear she hasn’t patched things up with Nicki Minaj

While gearing up to present the MTV VMAs this Sunday, Miley Cyrus gave the New York Times an insight into what she is planning for the gig… and she had a few choice words for some of the attendees.

The singer made sure to address the controversy kicked off by Nicki Minaj a few months ago, making it clear she wasn't happy with how things went down. 

As you probably remember, Nicki got caught up in quite the mess with fellow pop star Taylor Swift when she took to social media to express her disgust at not being nominated for a VMA for Anaconda.

The Pink Friday hitmaker tweeted: "If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year."

Although Nicki didn't address Miley (or anyone else) directly in her tweet, the Wrecking Ball singer was quick to get on the defence, saying the comments were uncalled for.

"Jealousy does the opposite of what you want it to — that's a yoga mantra," Miley told the NYT. "People forget that the choices that they make and how they treat people in life affect you in a really big way."

Refusing to let Nicki off the hook easily, she continued, "If you do things with an open heart and you come at things with love, you would be heard and I would respect your statement. But I don't respect your statement because of the anger that came with it."

She also suggested that Nicki may be acting a bit spoilt after missing out on the nomination. "It's not anger like, 'Guys, I'm frustrated about some things that are a bigger issue.' You made it about you. Not to sound like a b*tch, but that's like, 'Eh, I didn't get my VMA.'" Miley added.

"What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It's not very polite."
