Nicki Minaj called Miley Cyrus out at the MTV Video Music Awards after the 22-year-old said in an interview that the rapper was being a poor sport about not receiving a nomination for video of the year.

After collecting best hip-hop video for “Anaconda” on Sunday, Minaj told the audience at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles: “And now back to this (expletive) that had a lot to say about me a lot in the press. Miley, what’s good?”

Minaj’s microphone was cut off, and Cyrus fired back with “we all know how they manipulate” words during interviews, referencing a pre-VMAs interview in the New York Times. Cyrus then stumbled over her words as she tried to read from cue cards about voting for the Artist to Watch Award.

“I lost this award in 2008 and I was fine with it. Whatever! Because it’s no big deal. It’s just an award and I persevered,” she yelled, appearing to look over at Minaj.

She ended with: “Congratulations Nicki.”

In the recent interview, Cyrus criticized Minaj for her “pop star war” with Taylor Swift that began in July. On the show, however, the rapper ended her issues with Swift: The performers joined forces onstage.

After Minaj entertained the audience with her upbeat “Trini Dem Girls,” Swift joined the rapper during her performance of “The Night Is Still Young.”

Swift wore a bright red dress that mirrored Minaj’s ensemble. Swift then performed some of her hit, “Bad Blood,” as Minaj danced around her. They closed with a hug.

Swift, who is the top nominee with 10, traded words with Minaj over Twitter when the VMA nominees were announced in July.
