Wait. What? How? Why?

Nicki Minaj just went OFF on Miley Cyrus at the 2015 Video Music Awards and we’re speechless. Not really. Grabs popcorn. Girl, we’re only 10 minutes into the show and it’s about to go down!

Nicki Minaj accepted the award for “Best Hip-Hop” video for her bootylicious “Anaconda” video and used her acceptance speech to thank her pastor before taking aim at Miley Cyrus. In case you missed it, Miley chimed in on Nicki’s Twitter beef with Taylor Swift and slammed the Pinkprint rapper for making it about her.

“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,” Miley said in an interview with the New York Times. “And 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 bitch, but that’s like, ‘Eh, I didn’t get my VMA.'”

Nicki took a page out of her boo Meek’s book and viciously ignited a beef we’ll probably be talking about for the next few days.

We had a feeling this was going to happen. We were just waiting for Nicki Minaj to touch the mic.
