There is nothing an award show likes more than a big moment for people to talk about. Whether it be a heartfelt speech, a surprise winner or one of those epic live television double takes, there has to be something for people to talk about, or else the entire thing will simply fade into obscurity and blend in with all of the other previous ceremonies. Consequently, any WTF moment has to be looked at a bit skeptically, starting with today’s awkwardness at the MTV Video Music Awards between Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj.
In case if you missed the ceremony, the proceedings were sidetracked when Nicki Minaj took to the stage and after thanking various people, went at host Miley Cyrus with a blindside about some recent comments she made during an interview with The New York Times.
And now, back to this bitch that had a lot to say about me in the press. Miley what’s good?
Ordinarily, you would think it was part of some larger gag, but Miley Cyrus’ face didn’t exactly scream that she was in on the joke. In fact, someone recorded her while she wasn’t on camera, and she looked shocked by what happened. Check out her reaction below…
Of course she fired back a bit when the camera jumped back to her by congratulating Nicki Minaj and iterating how interviews are manipulated in this business, but she still seemed a bit out of her element. In fact, Entertainment Weekly later ran a story claiming its source close to production confirmed it was not planned out at all.
Maybe that’s true. Maybe it’s not. A lot of evidence points to it being legit, but there’s something about it that just seems like it was engineered to create publicity, kind of like the Video Music Awards themselves. There is nothing these two women love more than publicity, and this will create a ton of it.
