Confused About Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus' Feud? We Gotchu

Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus just dusted off their never-ending feud, and honestly nothing could have emotionally prepared me for Nicki calling Miley a piece of “Perdue Chicken.” Name an insult more savage, I am willing to wait.

Anyway, this iconic pop culture beef goes back alllllll the way to 2015 (though we’re gonna go back even earlier for context, just FYI) and involves some pretty legendary insults, misunderstandings, clap-backs, and public call-outs that—yup—were caught on camera. But to truly understand Nicki and Miley’s whole ~thing~ we gotta go in chronological order and time-travel to 2013. You ready?

August 8, 2013

It’s fall ’13 and things seem fine! In fact, Miley and Nicki are in the studio together, so they’re clearly friendly if not friends.

Beauty and The Beast.

This is when things get weird: Miley photoshops her face onto Nicki Minaj’s body and posts it on Twitter. Nicki, much like the rest of us, is profoundly confused, so she calls her out on Instagram:

Give me one good reason why Miley made this her twitter avi. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 #AnacondaOniTunes 👅

Miley then photoshops another picture of herself as Hannah Montana on Nicki’s body, and Nicki calls her out for that too:

No chill ZONE!!!! 😩

Meanwhile, the world is just all: 😬.

August 24, 2014

Miley hits the VMA red carpet and is asked about Nicki’s “Anaconda” video breaking her VEVO record. She keeps things positive, saying, “I ain’t got that ass. I can bring that body, I can bring that wrecking ball, but I can’t bring that ass. Not that Anaconda.”

Alrighty then. Let’s take a break to watch both vids, shall we?

July 21, 2015

Nicki’s video for “Anaconda” doesn’t get nominated at the VMAs, and she heads to Twitter to justifiably bring up a major double standard in this industry:

When the “other” girls drop a video that breaks records and impacts culture they get that nomination. 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊

If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊

Taylor Swift tweets and deletes the following: “@NICKIMINAJ I’ve done nothing but love & support you. It’s unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot..”

Huh? Who cares. This is about Miley and Nicki. Which brings us to…

August 27, 2015

For reasons that no one will EVERRRRRRRR understand, Miley decides to take personal offense at Nicki’s very legit tweets. In an interview with the New York Times, she says this:

Nooooo, Miley….WYD? But wait, there’s more:

NO NO NO NO. But oh lord, there’s EVEN more:

August 30, 2015

It’s the VMAs, and sh*t goes down. Nicki wins for Best Hip Hop Video and calls out Miley on stage, saying, “Back to this bitch that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press; Miley, what’s good?”

Miley responds, “Hey. We’re all in this industry, we all do interviews, and we all know how they manipulate this shit.”

IDK, The New York Times isn’t exactly known for “manipulating” interviews, but okay!

August 31, 2015

It’s the day after the VMAs, and Nicki posts this, LOL:

Lol tonight was such a great time. Love u guys. 😘

A source then tells Us Weekly, “Nicki was livid with Miley and decided to air her feelings onstage. The anger was very real and not a pre-planned bit at all.” In fact, staffers “had to be sure Nicki and Miley didn’t cross paths for the rest of the evening because they were legitimately worried about a confrontation happening.”

May 21, 2017

Nicki claps for Miley at the Billboard Music Awards and everyone thinks it’s incredibly shady.

July 7, 2018

Everything seems fine! Miley posts a clip of herself dancing to Nicki’s single “Chun-Li,” Nicki re-posts to Instagram, and Miley comments “What’s good.” In the words of The Lion King: It’s the CIRRRRRRCLE of life.

#PressPlay: #Miley what’s goodt👀 looks like Miley is team #Nicki again 👀💃🏾

Update: Everything is not fine! Miley disses Nicki on her new song “Cattitude,” singing “I love you Nicki, but I listen to Cardi.”

Fans are not thrilled:

“I love you Nicki but I only listen to Cardi.”

You lied and used Nicki vs Cardi beef for your publicity. I really need you to relax and stop acting up @MileyCyrus

May 29, 2019

Miley denies dissing Nicki, telling Capital FM, “I think that what [Nicki and Cardi] do is so different from each other, that’s why they both get a crown. I think that you’re allowed to enjoy two artists that fill a similar lane. I just always grew up collaborating with Selena and Demi and there was never competition. So Ariana’s, like, one of my best friends.”

June 21, 2019

Nicki responds to Miley’s insult, calling her a piece of Perdue Chicken. “A Perdue chicken can never talk shit about queens,” she says. “That’s what she did… In the first place, she disrespected me in a magazine article for no reason. I had just seen her after she sucked Mike WiLL’s dick in the studio.”

Whichhhhh brings us back to this picture:

Beauty and The Beast.
