Nicki Minaj called Miley Cyrus a ''b***h'' at the MTV Video Music Awards.

The 'Anaconda' rapper hit out at the awards host as she accepted the prize for Best Hip-Hop Video on Sunday (30.08.15), after Miley criticised the way she handled being snubbed for the Video of the Year prize.

After finishing her speech, Nicki said: ''And now, back to this b***h that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press ... Miley, what's good?''

Miley hit back: ''Hey, we're all in this industry, we all do interviews, and we all know how they manipulate s**t. Nicki, congratu-f***ing-lations.''

In a recent interview, Miley said she felt Nicki's Twitter rant last month was ''not very polite'' and blasted her for getting into drama with Taylor Swift.

She said: ''What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It's not very polite.

''I think there's a way you speak to people with openness and love. You don't have to start this pop star against pop star war. It became Nicki Minaj and Taylor in a fight, so now the story isn't even on what you wanted it to be about.''
