雖然VMA(MTV Video Music Awards)已經過了超過一個月，但Nicki Minaj在領獎台上與Miley Cyrus的對鬧仍然一直被網民瘋傳，最近Nicki接受New York Times訪問時終於都開腔說她對於這件事的感覺，她不止感到生氣，她更希望讓Miley或其他人了解在娛樂圈關於種族政治的問題：
The fact that you feel upset about me speaking on something that affects black women makes me feel like you have some big balls. You’re in videos with black men, and you’re bringing out black women on your stages, but you don’t want to know how black women feel about something that’s so important? Come on, you can’t want the good without the bad. If you want to enjoy our culture and our lifestyle, bond with us, dance with us, have fun with us, twerk with us, rap with us, then you should also want to know what affects us, what is bothering us, what we feel is unfair to us. You shouldn’t not want to know that.
