Miley Cyrus Talks MTV VMAs, Criticizes Nicki Minaj

(Radio.com) With just a few days left until Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards, anticipation is building about what exactly the long-running show has in store with host Miley Cyrus, aside from the revamped statue, Justin Bieber's new single, and Kanye West's Video Vanguard Award.

In a new interview with the NY Times, Cyrus reveals that the award show will not simply be a rehash of awards show in the past, but will "psychedelic" and "raw," saying that MTV gave her the freedom to really put her stamp on the show.

The interview takes a hard detour, though, when the subject of Nicki Minaj's criticism of the nominees is brought up. "What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind," Cyrus said. "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. Now you've just given E! News "Catfight! Taylor and Nicki Go at It." Read more here.
