Other competitors for the Video of the Year award include Taylor Swift with Lamar for “Bad Blood,” Ed Sheeran for “Thinking Out Loud“, and Mark Ronson with Bruno Mars for “Uptown Funk”.
According to Time, Miley Cyrus will be MTV’s Video Music Awards first host following Kevin Hart who helmed the show in 2012.
“I’ve done nothing but love & support you”, she tweeted to Minaj. “#VogueSpain #KimNoFilter”, claiming it had nothing to do with Taylor and Nicki’s feud.
Meanwhile, Joy is now touring through America with pop princess Taylor Swift on her 1989 World Tour, who also took out four nominations at this year’s VMA’s.
She also responded to a fan, “I’m not always confident”. It’s unlike you to pit women against each other.
Her barbz quickly came to her defense with one fan tweeting, which Minaj retweeted, “Anaconda was a CULTURAL PHENOMENON and it didn’t even receive a nomination??”
MTV confirmed the news and shared Cyrus’s photos on Twitter, but it did not retweet the 22-year-old’s expletive-laced tweet.
Swift is in the running for Video of the Year for “Bad Blood“, which features the 25-year-old as a feminist action hero with appearances by a bevy of stars including actress Jessica Alba and rapper Kendrick Lamar. “Didn’t say a word about u”. But u should speak on this.
Cyrus made waves last year when she won the video of the year trophy and invited a young homeless man named Jesse Helt on stage to accept the trophy on her behalf. “Just exhausted. Black women influence pop culture so much but are rarely rewarded for it”.
“Anaconda”, released a year ago, has 488 million views on YouTube.
Jessie J, Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj, “Bang Bang“.
The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards will be broadcast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, August 30.
