Nicki Minaj Won The 2015 MTV VMAs, At Least According To Twitter
Miley Cyrus might have hosted the 2015 MTV VMAs, performed a new song called "Dooo It," and dropped a surprise album, Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz , but it's possible Nicki Minaj still won the night. There was no shortage of Minaj at the 2015 MTV VMAs, as she opened the show and brought out special guest Taylor Swift, shut down rumors about a feud with Swift, won an award for Best Hip Hop Video for "Anaconda," and acknowledged another feud, this time with Cyrus. It was a lot of news for one night, but if social media is any indication, the fans are full of support for Minaj.
Arguably, there were many tweets calling out Minaj for her response to Cyrus' New York Times interview. And then, of course, there were people applauding Cyrus for her response to Minaj's on-stage jab. But there was an overwhelmingly positive response to Minaj slaying her opening performance, publicly making peace with Swift, and defending herself.
It sounds like there's many sides to the Cyrus-Minaj feud, but as far as social media is concerned, Minaj was the social media darling of the night. (And that's not even including her numerous appearances on 2015 MTV VMAs best-dressed lists!) Check out fans supporting Nicki Minaj in the tweets below.
Oh, and there was also some love from a pop star you might have heard of named Taylor Swift ...
Whether you're #TeamMiley, #TeamMinaj or just excited to see all of the action at the 2015 MTV VMAs, there's no doubt we'll be talking about this show for awhile.
