Righto, so a little while ago Miley Cyrus debuted a couple of new tracks from her upcoming EP She Is Coming. One of these, a tune called ‘Cattitude’, name-drops Nicki Minaj, re: the MTV VMA debacle of 2015. “I love you Nicki, but I listen to Cardi,” Cyrus sings… which has now reignited said debacle.
While promoting new song ‘Megatron’ on her latest episode of Queen Radio, Minaj called Cyrus a “Perdue chicken.”
“Perdue chickens can never talk shit about queens,” Minaj said on her Beats 1 show. “But I do notice a lot of Perdue chickens recently have been trying to say the queen’s name for clout. And that’s always been happening. And that’s what she did in the first place. And the white girl cry and made the black girl seem like she was a bad guy. 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.”
“You sucked all that d*ck, only to come out looking like a perdue f*cking chicken on stage, and then got mad and went back to country music. Sit yo’ stupid ass down.” pic.twitter.com/7rZS4uM3KK

Producer Mike WiLL Made-It worked with Cyrus on her 2013 Bangerz album, producing eight of its songs including ‘We Can’t Stop.’
Minaj also referred to Cyrus’ new Black Mirror episode, saying: “Now you coming out with pink wigs, all you bitches wanna be Nicki.” In the episode, Cyrus plays pop star Ashley O, who performs with a pink wig on. As an aside, Halsey recently tweeted some comparisons between herself and the fictional character.
As for that article, Minaj is referring to an interview Cyrus did which ultimately led to the “Miley, what’s good?” moment. In short, Minaj criticised the MTV VMAs after she was snubbed for a Video of the Year nomination.
“If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year,” Minaj tweeted at the time. “I’m not always confident. Just tired. Black women influence pop culture so much, but are rarely rewarded for it.”
Then, during an interview with The New York Times, Cyrus gave her two cents:
If you do things with an open heart and you come at things with love, you would be heard and I would respect your statement. But I don’t respect your statement because of the anger that came with it.
And it’s not anger like, “Guys, I’m frustrated about some things that are a bigger issue.”
You made it about you. Not to sound like a bitch, but that’s like, “Eh, I didn’t get my V.M.A.”
And four years later, here we are.
