After Nicki Minaj won best female hip-hop artist of the year and gave her acceptance speech, People  were wondering if she was throwing shade at Iggy Azalea. Minaj went on Twitter today to clear things up and make it clear that she was not throwing shade at Iggy. She would say, "I've congratulated Iggy on the success of Fancy, publicly. She should be very proud of that. All the women nominated should b proud. That will never change my desire to motivate women to write. Our voices have to be heard. I hope I inspire up & coming females to do that."

Well Iggy has responded and posted her message on her Instagram. Her caption read, "This is my mind state about everything & the only time I'm ever going to refer to this again so go nuts guys, Enjoy it. Ps. If you squint exxxtra hard you can see tiny elves having illuminati meetings between the lines in my notes app too." View the message below
