Last night (Aug. 17), James Franco was in character as Dave Skylark from his upcoming movie The Interview, to talk with some of today's biggest musical acts. Franco chopped it up with Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea, and Jason Derulo in this MTV special to prepare fans for the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards.

Franco had his fair share of annoyances with each artists but none quite like Nicki's. Bombarding the "Anaconda" rapper with questions about her assets, like "Is it natural or did you have to work on it?" and "If your ass was a tree, what kind would it be?", things quickly got heated between the two.

You can catch Nicki Minaj performing "Anaconda" live for the first time at the MTV Video Music Awards this Sunday (Aug. 24) at 9 PM.
