Nicki Minaj Throws Shade At Iggy Azalea At The BET Awards
After giving thanks for the opportunity to represent women in "a culture that is so male-driven," she threw some phenomenal shade at fellow nominee Iggy Azalea, who is rumored to use ghostwriters. "What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it," she told the audience, adding that she meant no offense. "No, no, no shade, no, no, no shade." Oh, but she threw shade, so much shade: Later, the 31-year-old also recounted a story of how she recently thought she was dying, but didn't call an ambulance because she didn't want it to be on TMZ. She didn't elaborate on her near-death experience, but she did take one last shot at Azalea at the end of her speech. "And I hope and pray that BET continues to honor authenticity," she told the crowd.Nicki Minaj won the award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist for the fifth year in a row at the BET Awards on Sunday, June 29, and her acceptance speech did not disappoint.
